This July 16 photo shows a screen shot of the website of Loon that has been allegedly defaced by suspected Chinese hackers.

Four days after the Philippines won the maritime arbitration case against the Chinese government over the West Philippine Sea (in the South China Sea), suspected Chinese hackers attacked local government unit (LGU) websites in some towns of Bohol.

The defaced websites include those belonging to the LGUs of Panglao (http://www.panglao.gov.ph) and Loon (http://www.loon.gov.ph).

The hacked sites show an image of what looks like a man with a mask with the text in capital letters:

“Nobody
can give you
freedom
Nobody
can give you
equality or justice
If you are a man
you take it.
—Chinese government”

As of writing, only the Panglao website has been taken down and cannot be accessed.
