NHCP Website Hacked on Independence Day, Hackers Leave Message to PNoy
The website of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) has been hacked, shortly after midnight today, Friday, June 12, 2015, Philippine Independence Day. The hackers identified themselves as M3ntioner, Pinoy Vendetta, All Pinoy Hackers, and Global Security Hackers, and left a message to PNoy.
Earlier today, the message on the said website is written in Tagalog. Nevertheless, it has been fixed as of 10 am today, and is still now running smoothly. But lucky for us here at TN, we was able to save the screenshot of the hacked website along with the message, which you can see above.
“Greetings, Mr.President. It’s been five years since you’ve been elected on your position. And since then, we have been observing you carefully. In those years, do you think you’ve done enough for the country? In those years, do you think our economy improved?” A message reads at nhcp.gov.ph while it was hacked.
“Or it became worst just like the previous presidents’ reign. How about your pledge to end the corruption? Where is the justice for the 44 Fallen soldiers? We are seeking answers from you Mr. President. And in your last year As the President of the Philippines, we are hoping to attain the Justice we deserve.” It added.
Meanwhile, President Benigno Aquino III is now in Iloilo where he led the rites to commemorate the Philippine Independence Day. For the first time in his five years as president, PNoy decided to celebrate the occasion in Visayas. He was joined by Senate President Franklin Drilon and DILG Secretary Mar Roxas.
After paying tribute to the heroes who fought the Spaniards to gain back freedom, President Noynoy Aquino did not fail to mention kind words about Roxas, who is being dubbed by the administration to run for president in 2016. This is a day after PNoy clarified that he will not definitely endorse VP Jejomar Binay for president.
“Kapag inatasan natin ang isang Mar Roxas na mamuno sa isang programa, asahan niyong magtatagumpay ito. Noon pa man, klaro na sa mga Pilipinong kilalanin kung ano ang tama at mali; at ang tugon nila dito ay ang manindigan sa panig ng katwiran.” PNoy said on his speech in Iloilo.
(Once we assign Mar Roxas to lead a program, we can expect that it will succeed. Even before, it is clear to Filipinos as to what is right and wrong, and their response is to stand for righteousness.)
