SMRT webpage hacked, users redirected
ST said that a check on SMRT's website at 4pm on Tuesday found that a section had allegedly been hacked into by a "Bortecine Tim".

SINGAPORE - The webpage of SMRT's media advertising arm was apparently hacked on Tuesday, with users redirected to a different webpage.

The Straits Times reported that users who tried to access the advertising rate for buses at www.smrtmedia.com.sg were directed to a webpage with the heading "Hacked By: Bortecine Tim". The page featured motifs of a crescent moon and star, and had text written in a foreign language.

ST said that the hacked page was partially fixed at 5.10pm. At 5.45pm, when AsiaOne visited the page, it seemed to be fully fixed, and showed no sign of being hacked.
