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.

    I have been browsing online more than 4 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough
    for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the
    net will be much more useful than ever before.

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested
    to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to share it with someone!

    You’ll need to organize the research to generate anything good a sense it, lest
    risk either wasting time (by researching topics you may not use) you aren’t including stuff you would really need.
    Use their computers to find information on books that criticize the novel you happen to be reading for
    the paper. They possess a simple organizational constitution that
    branches out of your midpoint and so are built using lines, symbols, words and images based on clear-cut,
    common sense principles.
