The National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) website was defaced twice earlier this morning by hackers to commemorate the Philippine Independence Day with a message addressed to President Benigno Aquino III.

The hackers who identified themselves as Pinoy Vendetta, Anonymous Rizal, Magdalo Cyber Army and Ghost Security Hackers defaced NHCP’s website with a letter initially written in Filipino and then later on replaced with the one in English and entitled “Message to the President.”

The post went went on with the following:

“Greetings Mr. President. It’s been five years since you’ve been elected on your position. And since then, we have been observing you carefully,” the post read.
“In those years, Do you think you’ve done enough for the country? In those years, Do you think our economy improved? Or it became worst just like the previous presidents’ reign. How about your pledge to end the corruption? Where is the justice for the 44 Fallen soldiers? We are seeking answers from you, Mr. President.”

While this kind of act may appear to be a way of these hackers to air their opinions, Justice Secretary Leila de Lima cleared before that hacking is a criminal offense under Republic Act 8792 (Electronic Commerce Act), punishable with imprisonment of up to three years and a fine of P100,000.
