Davao gov't websites defaced by Pinoy Hackers group
MANILA, Philippines – A number of Davao-related websites were defaced on Friday, May 6, with the hackers calling on people not to let their votes go to waste through cheating.
Calling themselves "Pinoy Hackers," the group left behind a message telling people not to allow their votes to amount to nothing.
They added, "Huwag pahihintulutan na ang uupo ay nakakamkam ng mga boto dahil sa pangmaramihang dayaan! Huwag maniwala sa ipinagkakalat ng isang news giant na paninira sa isang politiko."
(Don't let the one who will win through widespread cheating assume office! Don't believe what's being spread by one news giant against a politician.)
The defaced government websites include:
- the website for the municipality of Braulio E. Dujali in Davao del Norte (http://braulioedujali.gov.ph/)
- the website of the Davao Regional Hospital in Tagum (http://drhtagum.gov.ph/)
- the Southern Philippines Development Authority website in Davao del Sur (http://spda.gov.ph/)
The Philippine Daily Inquirer added the following websites as also being defaced:
