At least five hackers have been detained for allegedly being involved in the latest hacking of government and security agency websites, some of which were knocked out of service temporarily due to cyber attacks, the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) sources said.
The crackdown is expected to lead to the round-up of about 100 people believed responsible for the attacks after changes to the new computer crime bill were approved last week by the National Legislative Assembly.
An online netizen group against the single internet gateway (#opsinglegateway) announced its opposition to the new computer crime law on its Facebook page and vowed to attack state websites if the legislation was not stopped. — The Nation/Asia News Network
