NTC website hacked
The site was defaced at around 1 p.m. Upon entering the site it showed a pop-up message saying “Sh4d0wFiend_h4x0r and Wizkidl33t were here!” and would later redirect to another page displaying the hacker’s message.
The hacker’s message said “hello and welcome: presented by Wizkidl33t and Sh4d0wFiend_h4x0r” with animated blood and stylized fire text.
When a “proceed” button was clicked, a new page loads with the message “Welcome to the world of Halloween, in a moment you will see a couple of scary and entertainment media, this is not about a government issues this is for Halloween special click proceed to go to the next page.”
The NTC adds to the list of government websites that have been hacked and defaced by hacktivists allied with international group Anonymous.
The hacker group has claimed responsibility for the hacking of several government websites protesting the passage of the Cybercrime Prevention Act in the Philippines.
