Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, October 18)
 – An individual named “Diablox Phantom” on X, formerly known as Twitter, has claimed responsibility for hacking the websites of several government agencies.

Diablox Phantom said they hacked the websites of the Philippine National Police, the Philippine Statistics Authority, and the Department of Science and Technology.

Passion ko lamang ito. Walang ibang nagtutulak sa akin na gawin ko ito,” the hacker said. “Ang gamit ko ay open source intelligence at manual ang pagkalkal ng directories.”

[Translation: This is only my passion. Nobody pushed me into doing this. I use open source intelligence and manually search through the directories.]

Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) Assistant Secretary for Legal Affairs Renato Paraiso said the agency is aware of Diablox Phantom, and the Cybercrime Investigation and Coordinating Center is probing the hacker’s identity and claims.

“This is to confirm that the DICT is aware of this personality,” Paraiso told reporters on Wednesday.

The DICT earlier said there may be an inside job involved in the hacking incident of PSA as the affected community-based monitoring system was only accessible internally.
