Pinoy Hactivists Hacked Aegis Global Website; Massive Data was Leaked

Pinoy Hactivists took to action for the recent offensive insult advertisement by “Aegis Global” calling Philippines the “Ring of Fire” as the not so supportive environment for businesses – An environment where there is inadequate infrastructure and unfriendly climate for smooth operations, less security, and lack of government support, causes a major data breach, defacements, and website wipeout late night on Wednesday, September 2014.

The groups of hactivists who breached and lambasted the website of Aegis Global were named ‘Lulzsec Pilipinas’ and ‘Phantom Hackers.PH’ whom are both affiliated under the Anonymous Philippines.

Pinoy Hactivists who hacked Aegis Global and leaked their data's

Here are the actual screenshots of the website on 2:24 AM on September 2014.


The first screenshot cites a message,

HAHA Alam Na Dis! \m/
GodLike Was Here
--Phantom Hackers.PH
--LulzSec Pilipinas!
Pinoy Hacktivists were able to breach the company's confidential data's containing Document files, Texts, PDF, images and zipped files, and Databases as well, and leaked it to public.

The second defacement shows a flying animated cartoon cat with Japanese pop song in it called “nyan cat”.

The last image marks “Tango Down” or the total wipe out, where the homepage and other areas of the company's website went blank.

Recently, the company had already issued a public apology and removed the video from YouTube, yet the damage has been done and has driven the wrath of the Filipino hactivists to launch the attack as their action.
