thai cyberbattlefield opens

Cyber-guerrillas hacked into the Thai Ministry of Information and Communication Technology a day after a new law to combat cyber crimes was effected by the military government. The hackers posted photographs of ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who was removed in a coup last year.

In a related story, the recent launch of Thaksin’s official website (apparently down for repairs/under construction) prompted a warning from the Ministry of ICT that “If the website contains content deemed detrimental to national security…the ministry will shut it down and take legal action against the owner.”
