An online hacktivist going with the handle of Anonymous Leyte has claimed to hack in to the official website of Philippines‘s Department of Trade & Industry (DTI) (http://bps.dti.gov.ph), ending up with leaking login details of 1900+ members online yesterday.
The reason for hacking the DIT’s website is to register a protest against the mishandling of the Yolanda Typhoon’s relief operations conducted by the National Government of the Philippines in Nov, 2013.
The leaked data contains full names, usernames, emails and their password hashes. Some emails are registered on @dti.gov.ph domain, proving that data really belongs to DTI.
After analyzing the data, we have found it to be legit and never been leaked before over the web,said HackRead.
Typhoon Haiyan, known in the Philippines Typhoon Yolanda, was one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded, which devastated portions of Southeast Asia, particularly the Philippines, on November 8, 2013, according to Wikipedia.
