Global members of Anonymous make their presence felt, hack 3 government websites in the past few days

SHARE

The newly minted RA 10175 (more commonly known as the Anti-Cybercrime Law) has attracted a lot of negative attention from the local populace and the international community. While most protests and criticisms have been relegated to social media, a few international members of the hacker collective Anonymous have taken matters into their own hands and have recently hacked and defaced multiple government websites in the past few days. A Turkish hacking group defaced DENR’s website 24 hours ago, while hacking group Ablaze and Teamroot hacked marina.gov.ph and mtc.gov.ph respectively.

While DENR’s website (http://www.denr.gov.ph/) is now up and running, the Maritime Industry Authority (http://www.marina.gov.ph/) and the Maritime Training Council (http://www.mtc.gov.ph/) websites are still down as of writing.
