Digital rights org claims cyberattacks against Filipino media outlets come from government and army

Qurium Media Foundation has reported a campaign of DDoS attacks on Filipino media outlets and human rights organisations that appear to be coming from the country’s Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and Army.

During the past month, Qurium has received brief but frequent denial attacks against the Philippine alternative media outlets Bulatlat and AlterMidya, as well as the human rights group Karapatan,” said the Swedish digital rights, data protection, and internet security NGO in its online report.
