ONE of the local hackers who claimed responsibility for defacing several Philippine sites such as ABS-CBN.com has now targeted the homepage of Ayala-owned Globe Telecom.
The hacker codenamed dcoder e-mailed INQ7.net Monday night to announce that he has already uploaded a defaced page at www.globeinteractive.com.ph/greets.htm and at http://gnet.globe.com.ph/greets.htm. Moreover, dcoder claimed that his complete message would appear on the Globe homepage at the stroke of midnight.
"My Final Greetings Would Be on the Main Webpage of Globe when the clock strikes 12, for the meantime this is just a temporary one cuz its not yet christmas...
"This one goes out to the people who critcizes us telling us we can't gain root on the biggest cellular company," dcoder wrote in his e-mail.
The defaced page consists of a greeting to Globe users.
"'Merry Christmas & Happy New Year' goes out to All Globe Users nationwide..
"This Yuletide Greetings Comming From DCODER and the Whole Family No Values Tour," dcoder declared in the defaced page.
The page cited "The FourOclock Project," which refers to the hackers' alleged efforts to "educate" Philippine network administrators by exposing security flaws in their systems.
"F**ks to All The People Who Never Believed On us That We can Own this Major Cell Co.," dcoder added.
In a previous e-mail, dcoder claimed that he was no longer connected with the project or Team AsianPride. AsianPride, one of the groups behind the project, claimed responsibility for the defacement of ABS-CBN.com.
INQ7.net contacted Globe officials to inform them of the threat and get comments. The media relations officers, however, said that they could not yet comment on the hacking threat.
Offices are on a holiday break as the country celebrates Christmas Eve.
