Education Ministry website hacked
« on: September 17, 2012, 11:04:59 PM »
A hacker has broken into the Education Ministry website and posted a message saying that the ministry should have no right to control teenagers.

A person identified as Gleich zi Libertia attacked the site at 4.30pm and posted the message in Thai that read: “We’re Libertia. We do what we want to protect our freedom. You have no right to control teenagers like us. We have our own life and our own rules.”

The attacker posted a similar message in fractured English saying, “We're Libertia. We do whatever we want, because we can. Don't dominant your teenager. We have our life, We have our rules"

The hacker also left a message that said, “Hacked by Gleich zi Libertia. We don’t need you. Bring me democracy!” and criticized the ministry’s campaign to nurture the so-called jit arsa (volunteers) among youth with harsh language, saying it was useless.

The hacking caused the website to malfunction and the ministry’s IT and communications officials had to close it down at 5.20pm.

Education Ministry permanent secretary Sasithara Phichaicharnnarong admitted that the ministry’s IT security system had a major defect that left it vulnerable and it needed to be fixed.

Ms Sasithara said officials were examining how the website had been hacked. As far as she knew, the hackers were likely to be a group of teenagers. She urged the teenagers behind the attack to take their complaints to her and discuss their frustrations.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.

It's unlikely that the hackers learned anything useful. They already seem to know more English than most teachers.
