ABS-CBN DZMM website hacked, defaced by Blood Sec, Anonymous Philippines

The website of ABS-CBN radio station DZMM was hacked and defaced by hacktivist groups Blood Sec International and Anonymous Philippines.

The homepage of the site was down, but a backup (dzmm.abs-cbnnews.com/index.html) shows the following message:

"Our minds are constantly being invaded by legions of half-truths, prejudices, and false facts.. One of the great needs of mankind is to be lifted above the morass of false propaganda."

A GIF of a flame can be seen while a hidden music video titled "Epic Ambient Gregorian Chant Church Music - In Spiritus" is being looped in the background.

The hacking incident, which took place Monday night, April 18, was revealed after Blood Sec posted a screenshot of the defaced site on Facebook at 8:48 p.m. The group said "Hello Abs Cbn" in its caption.

In a separate post, the group said:

A little over an hour later, Anonymous Philippines shared the photo and captioned it with a warning that says "Media manipulation and bias reporting, ABS-CBN, we are watching."

As of 11 p.m., accessing dzmm.abs-cbnnews.com would redirect an internet user to the network's main portal news.abs-cbn.com.

ABS-CBN has yet to release an official statement on the hacking incident.
