Hackers Disrupt Prison Websites of Thailand

A hacker cabal -Blink Hacker whose members are linked to the Anonymous campaign recently disrupted prison websites of Thailand to show dissent of capital punishment issued to twin tourists from Britain.

The hack targeted 20 websites out of which nineteen continue as inaccessible. The single one online is that of Corrections Department. Names of all the 20 sites can be seen from Facebook profile of the cabal. According to Bangkok Times report, the websites continued to be offline till the morning of 10:45 while displayed a message "server-not-found."

Anonymous declared an operation named #Justice4WaiandZaw under which it had disabled 300 websites of the Courts of Justice of Thailand. Still earlier, the gang had executed DDoS assaults on 300 court websites of Thailand when it published online 1gigabyte-sized data belonging to the Supreme Court of Thailand.

Additionally, even prior to that, Anonymous had taken down 14 sites of Thai police. Nevertheless, there were indeed various hashtags inside the post like #BoycottThailand and #KohTao. It appears that 'boycotting Thailand' is a common subject that the hackers used in all of their earlier assaults. Moreover, the hashtags list further included one fresh name, #LukeMiller that possibly related to one of the two tourists visiting Koh Tao who having taken too much drugs died in the swimming pool while diving deep, January 10.

Two days later on 13th January, 2016, 2 Myanmar men, aged 22-yrs, received death sentence. Those criticizing the judgment said the men had been tortured to falsely acknowledge that they killed the 2 Brits. Techworm posted this, January 28, 2016.

It's evident that Anonymous also defaced the websites belonging to Royal Thai Police, January 5 followed with stealing voluminous court databases solely to expose the corruptible crimes of legal authorities.

The hacker gang condemned the government of Thailand that it merely tried to save its name among the masses as maintaining one tourist-friendly nation, no matter whether innocent individuals were sent to death in the background of erroneous investigations.

As per Bangkok Post, a warning by Anonymous is that further cyber-assaults vis-à-vis the websites of Thai prison and justice are inevitable unless the problem is solved.
