Pinoy hacker group strikes FDA website

Days after attacking the site of the Philippine Nuclear Research Institute (PNRI), the so-called Filipino hacker group "Philker" struck again on Thursday, this time hitting the site of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The attack came despite the government's plan to review the security of government websites following the attack on the PNRI site.

It was the third attack on a government site this week, after the PNRI and the Bureau of Customs. The attack on the Customs website did not bear Philker's signature, however.

Visitors to the FDA website as of 4 a.m. Thursday were greeted with a popup window with the message "Hacked by Blackrain."

When the visitor clicked the "Ok" button, he or she will be taken to the FDA homepage, where the "Philker" logo occupies a part of the page.
