Hackers don’t want Jinkee bullied
MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) -- Filipino hackers have launched so-called operations against Mexican websites after Jinkee Pacquiao, the wife of boxing icon Manny Pacquiao, was supposedly bullied on social media networks.
A Mexican company with the website www.innovations.com.mx was defaced by hackers calling themselves “Pinoy Vendetta” and “Anonymous Iligan.”
Across the page are the phrases: “#OP MEXICO” and “NEVER CYBER BULLY MANNY PACQUIAO WIFE” and “MORE WEBSITES ARE COMING”
Also written below the page was “We fight for freedom, We fight for the right, We fight for honor! We forgive, but we do not Forget, Expect us! We are watching you!”
Another Mexican website, ledu.com.mx, was also defaced.
The Filipino boxing icon was knocked out in the sixth round after lording over the first two rounds of the fight against Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez.
Pacquiao was later seen slumped on the ground, face down. A crying Jinkee was then seen rushing to the boxing ring.
Later the hash tag #sufracomolaesposadepacquiao made it to the trending list of Twitter. Translated, “sufra como la esposa de pacquiao” means “suffer like Pacquiao’s wife.” It is unclear where the hash tag originated.
Filipino fans supposedly retorted back with the hash tag: #holamexicopakyukayo. It is currently trending worldwide.
“Anonymous #OccupyPhilippines” distanced itself from the two groups, however. In a Facebook post, the group said: “So do your thing, and don't call your ops anonymous unless you're doing it for all of us anonymous. (I doubt hacking mx sites would benefit anyone). For the record, I'm not just talking about this incident. I would commend their talents and skills but they should put it into better use.”
