By David Dizon

MANILA - Local hackers took only 3 days to crack the encrypted password of the official website of the Office of the President, a member of Anonymous Philippines revealed Thursday.

Local netizen #pR.is0n3r said members of Anonymous Philippines were able to detect a vulnerability in the President's website, which allowed them to get more technical information on the site including a username.

He said local "Anons" spent 3 days to reveal and crack the site's encrypted password, allowing them to post a message on the official website for 6 hours.

In the message, local hackers criticized how the President has been handling the conflict in Sabah.
