Badawi’s Website Was Hacked Today

Obviously filled with anger due to yesterday’s announcement of petrol price’s 41% hike, a hacker decided to get personal with our Prime Minister, Abdullah Badawi and left a little message for him on his website:

http://www.pmo.gov.my/website/webdbase.nsf/w_4?openForm&url=http://www.geocities.com/nmapx/manifesto.txt

The not-so-polite message was still accessible as at 3:18pm, Thursday…15 hours and 18 minutes after the government decided to make the life of Malaysia citizens a little bit more harder.

Update (5:43pm): Ok now few sources are claiming that the hack is real, and it was due to a loophole found on the website. And apparently the person responsible for this is an insider. The website is down and inaccessible at the time of posting.

Update (3:27pm): A reliable source informed me that this is not a real hack but just a hoax. Keke…I guess the government is right, you can’t always believe what you read on blogs.
