On local news (Philippines) the Commission on Elections (Comelec) website was hacked and defaced by a group identified as "Anonymous Philippines".
There was no serious threat reported since the site was supposed to be less secure (Editor's note: maybe be) compared to the supposed voting system infrastructure.
With the hacked website, a message was also included:
One of the processes by which people exercise their sovereignty is through voting in an election - where people choose the candidates who will best represent them under the principle that 'Public office is a public trust.'
But what happens when the electoral process is so mired with questions and controversies? Can the government still guarantee that the sovereignty of the people is upheld?
I hope the COMELEC strengthen ALL of there online systems/infrastructures, part of the hacking shows that the I.T. department was slacking-off. But the message of the hacking group was clear, and in my words "would I want to be part of a process (election) where my voice could just be easily disregarded once the person of interest (politician) has seated himself(herself) upon the sought after position?"
