Anonymous PH defaces COMELEC website
Anonymous PH members have successfully defaced the Commission of Elections website, and in turn, extracting data from it.
This comes after a call from the local hacktivist’s of a more transparent election system through implementation of the security features on the Precinct Count Optical Scanner (PCOS) machines that will be used in the upcoming May 9 elections.
“One of the processes by which people exercise their sovereignty is through voting in an election- where people choose the candidates who will best represent them, who will serve them under the principle that “Public office is a public trust.” But what happens when the electoral process is so mired with questions and controversies? Can the government still guarantee that the sovereignty of the people is upheld?” said the group on their Facebook Page.
Along with the defacement, Lulzsec Pilipinas have also managed to obtain the whole database coming from the website. COMELEC’s web address remains inaccessible as of the moment.
More as we get it.
