The Philippines Goverment has become the latest target in the #antisec operation with a hacker crew known by BashCrew, Congress.gov.ph being hacked and having some data leaked.

Several hacker groups have mounted a fresh batch of cyber attacks against the Philippines, Peruvian, and Colombian governments, all in the name of Anonymous’ ongoing AntiSec campaign.

The attacks were all first revealed on The Hacker News website before subsequently being publicised by Anonymous via one of its Twitter accounts

Shortly after the hackers with the AntiSec online activist campaign announced the release of about 90,000 military e-mail addresses and other data purloined from Booz Allen Hamilton, AntiSec followers on Twitter were anticipating a second data dump.

The Twitter account of someone believed to be a main operative in the AntiSec hacking campaigns, AnonymouSabu, warned on Sunday: "ATTN: Tomorrow will be two of the biggest releases for Anonymous in the last 4 years. Everyone brace. This is literally explosive."

A group of hackers who have taken credit for several high-profile data breaches in recent weeks said Monday it had done it again, this time infiltrating the network of a government contractor and releasing what it says are thousands of military email addresses.

Calling the hack "Military Meltdown Monday," the hacker group claimed to have penetrated a computer server of Booz Allen Hamilton and released a list of more than 90,000 military email addresses and encrypted passwords and deleted 4 GB of source code.

Hacker groups that attack or steal -- some estimates say there are as many as 6000 of such groups online with about 50,000 "bad actors" around the world drifting in and out of them -- are a threat, but the goals, methods, effectiveness of these groups varies widely.

Malicious activity alert: Anonymous hack-school grads come online in 30 days

When they're angry, they hack into business and government systems to steal confidential data in order to expose information about their targets, or they simply disrupt them with denial-of-service attacks. These are the hackers with a cause, the "hacktivists" like the shadowy but well-publicized Anonymous or the short-lived Lulz Security group (which claimed to have just six members and just joined forces with Anonymous).

The government has been warned of more hacking attacks following a recent invasion of Vice President Jejomar Binay's website last month.

Hacker group Philker left a message on the Office of the Vice President's website, saying their group "aims to elevate our country's cyberculture and to point out and correct the vulnerabilities of PH websites to protect them from unethical hackers, fraud, false propaganda, and other people with malicious intent."

Kaspersky Lab Global Research and Analysis Team Director Costin Raiu suggested that the government must put up its own defense strategies against cyber attacks on its websites, and must conduct security audits as soon as possible.

And they are recruiting.

Some 17,000 email addresses and passwords from US government and military sources have been stolen and dumped on a public cyberlocker
.

A hacking group calling itself the Connexion Hack Team published a list of email addresses linked to the US military, the National Security Agency, Department of Homeland Security, and multiple state government agencies.  

The group did not disclose the source of the information, a stance taken by many participants of the Anti-Security movement.

It is just a matter of time before other nations involve in Spratly claim to be part of this Cyber Warfare. Or probably China may have attacked them already (or vice-versa), but are clueless, and probably defenseless?

Chinese and the Vietnamese hackers have started a cyber war over the territorial dispute on the ownership of the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea. According to Global Times, a website under the operation of the Vietnamese Foreign Ministry was hacked in June. The cyber attack has disabled all the links on that website and placed the China's flag at the center of the page. The article said the hackers left their cyber names "3King" and "Xiao Lan" on the website and claimed to be from Yancheng (northeastern Jiangsu Province).

BlackKatSec: The New Kids on the Block Who Allege They Took Down Al-Qaeda

Last week, the Al Qaeda site shamikh1.net was taken down by unknown persons and their domain suspended by Godaddy for abuse.

Evan Kohlmann of Flashpoint Global was making the rounds on the media circuit pimping that it was in fact MI6 or the like that took the site down.

However, Evan had little to no evidence to back this claim, and frankly, the media just ate it up evidence be damned. I came to the party after hearing online the previous weekend that the site was under attack and going down from an unknown type of attack.

From the satellite pictures on Google Earth, Jinan looks like any other Chinese city — sprawling construction sites, massive factory blocks, apartment buildings, a university, dozens of railway lines and wide-open plazas.

But according to the Internet giant, somewhere in the city — the capital of China’s eastern Shandong province — are the computer servers used to try to steal the passwords of hundreds of Google e-mail account holders. They included senior U.S. officials, human rights activists and journalists.

Perhaps, experts say, it came from the “technical reconnaissance bureaus” of the People’s Liberation Army said to be based in the city. Perhaps it came from the technical college U.S. investigators linked last year to a previous attack on Google that prompted it to temporarily quit mainland China.
