Philippine Web Awards Website Hacked (Updated)
Visited the Philippine Web Awards website (philippinewebawards.com) lately? Looks like it’s been hacked! (Click the thumbnail below for a full-size version)
It seems only the home page was affected, its content replaced with the tease “Good Security :D:D:D:D:D f”. Based on Google’s cache, the apparently unauthorized change was active since the morning of July 23, 2009 (at the very least).
Quick tests showed that the rest of the website still works. While it’s possible to remotely change the content of a specific page without gaining access to the entire site, I do hope important details like the personal information of the participants wasn’t compromised.
Update: Looks like the site is offline, for now at least.
