Hackers usually hide behind the cloak of anonymity to do their dirty deeds.
A notorious group of hacktivists even call themselves Anonymous and use a Guy Fawkes mask as their symbol.
Someone who styled himself as "The Messiah" has claimed credit for hacking several websites in Singapore since September.
This person, who also claimed to be linked to Anonymous, is believed to be responsible for defacing websites belonging to The Straits Times, pop singer Ho Yeow Sun and the People's Action Party Community Foundation.
But his attempt at using anonymity to cover his tracks seem to have failed to stop the law from catching up with him.
