Hackers Take Down BSP and MWSS Websites as protest for Cybercrime Law

Hackers Take Down BSP and MWSS Websites as protest for Cybercrime Law. Under the new law, also known as Republic Act No. 10175, among the cybercrime offenses listed include hacking, computer fraud, cybersex, and online libel. "Anonymous Philippines," in a statement on the websites, said the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 (Republic Act 10175), "is the most notorious act ever witnessed in the cyber-history of the Philippines."

Wednesday’s defacement is the first in what appears to be a series of attacks calibrated by local hacking groups to call attention to the contentious provisions of the new law.

Among other things, lawyers and civil society groups have tagged the libel provision, the takedown provision (Section 19), and the traffic data monitoring provision (Section 12) of the Cybercrime law as among the vague and unconstitutional facets of the Act.


Websites belonging to the Philippine Anti-Piracy Team, the Department of Environment in Region 3, the Institute for Development and Econometric Analysis, and the Department of Health's Anti-Smoking program were also defaced according to ABS-CBN report
