The Philippine government said on Tuesday that it will go after Filipino hackers who recently attacked and defaced Chinese websites.
“We have laws on maintenance of integrity of (internet) sites, in cyberspace, and we need to remind all concerned that such laws are being enforced in our country, respective of views that may be held by people who are resorting to those actions. We will continue to abide by our laws,” Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma, Jr. said in a press briefing.
On May 19, Filipino hackers attacked 195 Chinese government and commercial websites and have posted the following message: “China’s alleged claim on maritime territories and oppressive poaching can no longer be tolerated. Stand against Opression! It’s time to fight back! Say NO to China’s Bullying!”
