Philippine Information Agency website defaced

Is this related to the recent hostage taking? The website is now back up but no mention of the defacing….

MANILA — The Philippines on Sunday ordered all government offices to tighten Internet security after its main information website, Philippine Information Agency, was brought down by hackers.

"We are alerting all government agencies to review and improve security of their websites in view of the hacking of the website this afternoon," presidential spokesman Herminio Coloma said.

"We are adopting best practices to lessen the vulnerability of our websites to hacking and other cyber crimes," Coloma said.

The information agency website was inaccessible for several hours in the afternoon with the words "Hacked by 7z1" appearing if searched on Google.

Coloma did not say whether the hacker attack was related to widespread public anger in Hong Kong over police bungling of a hostage crisis that left eight tourists dead on Monday.

President Benigno Aquino’s personal Facebook account, which is linked to his official website, has been flooded by hate messages over the incident, with many coming from disgruntled Hong Kong residents accusing his police force of incompetence.

Aquino censored his Facebook page after Internet users ignored his appeal to stop bashing his government over its handling of the hostage crisis, banning slanderous and defamatory comments and posts.

Coloma said only slanderous postings and profanities were erased from the Facebook page.

"But those expressing their feelings — even if they are negative — are not being erased from the website because cyberspace should be democratic and different views are permitted," he said.

    These are the individuals who strongly have confidence
    in the strength of research and thus you must do some homework prior to going for the meeting.
    So, if you desire to move into the field of real estate property,
    invest in a condo in Toronto area that will definitely be an intelligent real-estate investment to suit your needs in future.
    The time you’ve spend looking at these real-estate purchasing guidelines is time properly spent.

    Hi! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.

    Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount of work?
    I’m brand new to writing a blog but I do write
    in my journal every day. I’d like to start a blog so I
    will be able to share my own experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips
    for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
