GMA News Official Website and Social Media Accounts (Facebook and Twitter) HACKED by D4RKB1T

The GMA News Official website, Facebook and Tweeter account has been hacked on Sunday, around 1 a.m, May 29, 2011.

If you browse the home page of GMA News official website it will redirect you to Google homepage “http//:google.com ” and if you browse the inner pages of the website, it has nothing to appear but jumbled codes and popped-up “Hacked by d4rkb1t”.

Here’s the print screen of the GMA News Websites Hacked by d4rkb1t:


The hacker who identified himself as “d4rkb1t!” also took control over Facebook and Twitter Account of GMA News. He posted many things about system and websites security. You can see some of his post on Facebook below:

“This is not stupidity, but a message to webdevs… Learn to secure your sites; user accounts and password with personal information are being stored there… We have to be ready for such cyber terrorism… No “data was altered or removed…- d4rkb1t”

“We have to be vigilant on securing sites or else personal information will be leaked – d4rkb1t”

“I did not intend to make damage, just make the devs, listen! They never respond to my messages telling them about the security hole! -d4rkb1t”

“Sorry for the brief interruption. I hope they will fix it this time. One must experience to learn. We need to protect our sites to protect our personal information! -d4rkb1t”

“I did write them, but not a letter… by email… that’s actually type! So yea, I typed to them… No response, that’s for the last 2 months… -d4rkb1t”

“One last thing, Actually GMA IT is better than ABSCBN… ABS CBN uses ready made opensource webapps, as to GMA uses their own system…- d4rkb1t”

Here’s the print screen photo of GMA News Official Facebook Page:

The hacker tweeted also the Username and Password of GMA News account on Twitter.com. And many Twitter users re-tweeted the username and password and it also spreads to other forum sites.

Maybe the hacker shares the username and password of GMA News so that many people will use the said account and it will be hard for them to trace the hacker’s ip address.

GMA News Websites is still unavailable while the Facebook and Twitter account are now under the control of GMA’s Technicians.

@GMANewsOnline tweeted, “We have re-established control of GMANewsOnline. Our apologies for the profanities.”

    Lessons learned: Do not reinvent the wheel. If there are opensource web apps, use it.  ”given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow”
