PH’s disaster awareness website hacked to redirect visitors to porn sites

The authorities were not prepared for this.

Alexis Romero of The Philippine Star reports that the mobile version of the government's newly-unveiled website for disaster information has been intruded by hackers to redirect to a foreign pornographic website.

 

The report explained that since Wednesday (November 6), the web address for DINA (Disaster Information for Nationwide Awareness) Project "[has been bringing] mobile phone users to a website of Russian models or a pornographic video sharing page." The project, which cost P1 million, was supposed to feature "eight audio-visual presentations that tackle earthquakes, tropical cyclones, tsunami, floods, landslides, fires and emergency survival kits" to help the public prepare for disasters.

 

National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) executive director Eduardo del Rosario has advised those interested to visit the site to access it through desktop computers or laptops in the meantime while the agency fixes the technical glitch.
