The website of the Philippine Information Agency or PIA was hacked Sunday afternoon with Chinese Flag above center as the home page with the words “Hacked by 7z1" and “Black Matrix team" could be seen in the government website as of 4:40 p.m. By 7:00 PM, the site was then fixed.

The hacking incident came a week after the Hostage taking of HK people which brought 8 killed people.

Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda said tighter Internet security measures are already in place to ensure the protection of websites of PIA and other government agencies from cyber attacks.

I just hope this is not related to the Hostage taking and I hope hackers are not filipinos, because if they are, then they are irresponsible.
