Ateneo de Manila University Website Hacked and Defaced by Pinoy Anonymouz


Ateneo de Manila University website hacked

An Anonymous-affiliated hacker group called “Pinoy Anonymouz” has breached and defaced a section of the official website of the Ateneo de Manila University in the Philippines.

The target is the Ateneo Integrated Student Information System, a portal that’s used by students, staff and faculty for various tasks, GMA News reports.

“Hacked by Pinoy Anonymouz. No to pork barrel!!! No to corruption!!! No to political dynasties!!!” the hackers wrote on the defaced page in uppercase letters.

At the time of writing, the website has been restored. Ateneo de Manila University representatives have refused to comment on the incident.

Anonymous hackers have often protested against the Filipino government by hacking websites. The last series of attacks on government sites took place on November 5, 2013, during the operation dubbed the “million mask march.”
