Chinese hackers defaces Philippines News Agency website

Chinese hackers defaced the website of the government owned Philippines News Agency (PNA) on Sunday. 


Defaced page of the website was with the Chinese flag and the text: "China Hacker EvilShadow Team, We are evil shadow. We are the team. We have our own dignity China Hacker Lxxker." The hackers shared news of the attack on Facebook.

The site was back to normal after an hour. This last hacking incident comes days after the arrest of 12 Chinese fishermen suspected of poaching after their boat ran aground in a protected marine park.

This was not the first time that the site was hacked. Last year, cyber attacks on several government websites were blamed on Chinese hackers during a standoff in Scarborough Shoal, a group of rocky outcrops in the South China Sea that is close to main Philippine island of Luzon.
