Hackers of gov’t websites known – De Lima
MANILA, Philippines—The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has already pinpointed personalities involved in defacing government websites, Justice Secretary Leila De Lima said
“As of last week, some personalities were identified. Is it just for fun…or were they wittingly violating the law? Those who are involved in hacking will be pinned down. Is this a loose group or loosely formed group…?” De Lima told reporters Monday.
Hacktivists have been defacing government websites in protest of President Benigno Aquino III’s approval of Republic Act 10175 or the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012.
Some of the government websites defaced include the Official Gazette under the Office of the President, Senate and Congress’ website, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, among others.
