Hacker ‘The Messiah’ claims responsibility for hacking ST print newspaper, putting wrong date

Posted on 05 November 2013

This contradicts earlier statements by ST that wrong date was to confuse the hackers.

“The Messiah” has claimed that members of the activist Internet group Anonymous worked together early this morning to collectively hack The Straits Times print newspaper.

The hackers claim that they are responsible for physically changing the date of print newspapers after they are printed.

They managed to infiltrate individual printed copies and changed the date from Nov. 5 to Oct. 5, proving they have honed their hacking expertise and taken it to a new level.

This is in direct contradiction to ST’s stance earlier that they wanted to confuse the hackers by printing the wrong date today, as a preemptive move to thwart the hackers, in what is turning out to be an increasingly dangerous escalating game of one-upmanship.

Singaporeans from all walks of life are intently watching the next move of both sides.

Pah Ka Luan, a local said: “Today I go buy breakfast order Chwee Kueh but the auntie give me Soon Kueh. The hackers hack the auntie, is it?”
