Indonesian Hackers Attack Australia

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - A group of hacker, naming themselves as Anonymous Indonesia, tweeted a list of hundreds of hacked Australian sites. The group claimed responsibility over the hacking attempt launched against Australian websites.

The sites, mostly being randomly chosen low-class business sites, were found displaying the message of "Stop Spying on Indonesia". The action is believed to be an act of revenge towards the recent news of the presence of an Australias spying facility in Jakarta, as reported by Sydney Morning Herald.

Similar actions had also taken place in other nations in Asia for different reasons. Anonymous Philippines recently hacked the Philippine government sites to support the eradication of 'pork barrel funds', a term used to refer to political corruption. In Singapore, an Anonymous user treathened to dismantle main infrastructures of the country as a form of protest towards the country's new IT regulation.
