CIJ web site hacked

Fri 2012-Apr-27 @ +08 12:53:11 pm

The Centre for Independent Journalism web site has been hacked by an unknown group apparently of Indonesian hackers. Coming on the eve of the Bersih rally at Dataran Merdeka, it may arouse suspicions of an anti-Bersih backlash, but other web sites more directly concerned with Bersih have been left alone. The web site is updated about once a week. The hack was discovered yesterday when CIJ tried to post a new article on the rally.

Yesterday CIJ released a study that showed news coverage of Bersih in the English-language and Malay press had dropped significantly compared to coverage of last year’s rally.
