House website hackedBy Karen Boncocan |INQUIRER.net
The House of Representatives website was defaced by hackers Saturday although a House official denied this, saying that a file was simply “overwritten” and has since been “corrected”.
A group which called themselves Anonymous Bulacan declared the website www.congress.gov.ph hacked at around 2 p.m.
But Bernadette dela Cuesta, executive director for the House public relations and information bureau, maintained that the website had not been hacked.
“As per the HRep Info & Comm Tech Service, it wasn’t hacked. May na-overwrite lang na file pero corrected na,” she said.
A screen shot of the page which should show a list of the House members was replaced by a message which said, “Pangalagaan nyo ang ating teretoryo!! Huwag maging Hudas sa sarili mong bayan..! Para sayo to Rep. Neri Colmenares [Protect our territory. Don’t be a Judas in your own country..! This is for you Rep. Neri Colmenares].”
The site has since been restored.
