Hackers deface gov’t websites to demand justice for slain SAF officers

(Updated 5:58 p.m.) Hacker group Anonymous Philippines attacked Philippine government websites on Saturday to protest President Benigno Aquino III's apparent missteps in the wake of the deadly clash in Mamasapano, Maguindanao.
Anonymous spread the same message as BloodSec International, a group that hacked a freelance journalist's website, across 20 websites on Saturday to criticize the president for missing the arrival honors for 44 Philippine National Police-Special Action Force troopers killed in the clash last Sunday.

"Brave men have died fighting for your reign and now that they need 'just recognition for their deeds' you were not there to honor them. Hindi pa sapat na pambabastos ninyo by not attending the rites at Villamor Air Base, late ka pa ngayon sa necrological service!," Anonymous wrote.
"RESPETO AT HUSTISYA, ang isinisigaw ng taong-bayan sa mga binitiwan mong pananalita bilang Pangulo ng Pilipinas! We are watching you, Mr. President," it ended.
The following websites have been hacked:
Anonymous Philippines last showed its displeasure with Aquino in March 2014, when the group criticized hacked the president's official website to protest his perceived inaction in the territorial dispute over Sabah.
It also attacked government websites in February of that year to supposedly defend freedom of expression online.  Rie Takumi/VC/JDS, GMA News
