Andanar Uncovers Plot of Hackers to Sit Back and Watch PNA Embarrass Itself

Martin Andanar

Manila – Local hackers are plotting to sit back and watch as the state-run Philippine News Agency (PNA) embarrass itself in front of the Filipinos, revealed Communications Secretary Martin Andanar on Monday.

On Friday, September 8th, the PNA encountered yet another unfortunate incident when their website published old news articles with lengthy editorial notes in the titles. The articles have already been unpublished and the site put on maintenance mode but not before quick netizens took screenshots and posted the articles online.

“Last Friday, our team found several IP addresses of suspicious individuals just watching, probably laughing, as this incident was unfolding,” said Andanar.

“We have a reason to believe that these individuals are sitting in their homes, watching as we embarrass ourselves,” he added.

The PNA has been making headlines recently as they committed one blunder after another.
