Anonymous Taiwan breaks into PHL govt sites, leaks passwords

Hackers claiming affiliation with the Anonymous hacktivist collective have leaked passwords and usernames from several Philippine government sites in supposed retaliation over the death of a Taiwanese fisherman last week. Calling themselves "AnonTAIWAN", the group put up a series of posts on Pastebin.com bearing the following message: Anonymous #opphilippines #AnonTAIWAN #InHackWeTrust @anon_taiwan

EXPECT US The series of posts also detailed the usernames, passwords, and other account details of several Philippine government websites, including those of the Intellectual Property Office; the Department of Education; the Philippine Public Safety College; and several dozen local government sites. It is not yet clear as of posting time how the hacks were undertaken, nor if the Philippine government is taking any countermeasures versus the hackers.
