It wasn’t just members of Pinoy Clownsec who are flexing their skills this quarantine season. Another local hacking group called FilTech Hackers Philippines is also out to prove that they too are still active.

FilTech Hackers Philippines defaced several subdomains of Cebu Normal University (CNU) today. The group didn’t mention any reason why they specifically targeted the institution apart from saying that they are also just bored.

IT staff of the Cebu-based university immediately took down the affected pages. The main page remained accessible as of this writing. CNU has yet to release a statement regarding the recent security issue.

FilTech Hackers Philippines did not just defaced CNU, the group also managed to get hold of a database that they later on posted in their Facebook Page. It’s quite confusing though because the group tagged it as a database of Central North University, a non-existent educational institution.

Apart from CNU, FilTech Hackers Philippines also defaced local classified ad website and the website of retail outlet Paseo Outlets.

We have reported this security incident to CNU, and Paseo Outlets. Should the affected parties decided to release an official statement, we will update this blog entry.
