To show solidarity with anti-pork barrel protesters, a group of hackers on Monday defaced the websites of some government agencies.
The group, who called itself “Anonymous Philippines,” claimed attacking more than 30 government websites.
In its Facebook page, the group listed the websites it said it hacked. The sites included that of municipal and provincial governments, state agencies, and even the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC).
Once these websites are visited, a drawing of a man in a suit with a question mark for a head appears together with the group’s message.
“Everyone should see. We appreciate the fact that you have now responded to the public clamor to abolish the PDAF,” the group said.
It also echoed the sentiments of several civil society groups regarding the decision of President Beningo Aquino 3rd to abolish the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) and replace it with a new and stricter system.
“We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not Forgive. We do not Forget. The corrupt fear us. The honest support us. The heroic join us,” the group said.
