Supporters of Anonymous set up websites to show 'conquests' online

SINGAPORE - Supporters of Anonymous group who have hacked into local government sites have gone online to create web pages to display their 'conquests'.

They have also gone to social media platforms such as Facebook and campaigned for people to join the Singapore 'MIllion Mask March', said Lianhe Wanbao.

They also update news on detained hacker James Raj, 35, and the others who have been taken in by the authorities for hacking and defacing the government sites.

On these sites, these supporters praise the hackers' actions and openly declare their alliance to the Anonymous group. They even listed down the group's 'conquests' which include invaded government and websites such as the Prime MInister's Office, The Straits Times and Ang Mo Kio Town Council.

Vandals roused by 'Messiah'

By Tessa Wong

SINGAPORE - Inspired by the self-styled "Messiah" hacker, several groups of Singaporeans went online or took to the streets in recent days to make mischief.

Police revealed yesterday there were three reported cases of vandalism in Prinsep Link, Tampines and Woodlands last week, featuring graffiti referring to Anonymous, the loose network of hackers and activists which "The Messiah" claimed to be part of.

In addition, two illegal gatherings linked to Anonymous took place last Tuesday while others hacked into the websites of the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) and Istana on Friday.
