The official website of  Philippine National Police’s (PNP) (qcpdpnp.com) Quezon City office has been hacked and defaced by online hackavist Anonymous hackers. 

Anonymous-Philippine National Police site hacked

The hack is done at the time when country’s SC is hearing the cyber crime law bill case, the hackers urged the courts to help in maintaining the freedom of expression in the country. According to the message left by the hacker: 

“Protect our Right to

Freedom of Expression!

For many years, we have spent speaking what we truly feel; what we truly felt.

NO HOLDS BARRED is the past game. We speak, the government hears. They speak, we are all ears.

1987 Philippine Constitution. Article III, Section 4 states that “NO LAW SHALL BE PASSED ABRIDGING the freedom of speech, of expression, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and petition the government for redress of grievances.”

What happened to the law? Are all laws meant to be broken? Are they made to fool people, deprive them of their rights in exchange of what we believe as “Heavens for Politicians”? Some say we are against the law because it would hinder our “criminal activities”, but WE do not oppose the said law in any way, if its for the greater good.

We are the voice of the weak, the sense of the numb, we are bonded by cause and purpose, We are ANONYMOUS, We are LEGION, We do not FORGIVE, We do not FORGET, Government of the Philippines, it’s too late to EXPECT US.” 

Yesterday, the Anonymous hackers had attacked six major and high profile government sites and left exactly the same message on all the sites. 

At the time of publishing this article, the website was taken offline, deface message was removed and Index of/ message was displaying.
