Journal: Colombian blogs under political attacks

Journal by darojasp

In an amazing move of political intolerance some hacker, possibly using social engineering, have shutdown a lot of colombian blogs (the full list in spanish here) using the name of a recognized right wing blog. The victims of the attacks are primary political blogs which doesn't support the national government. But other arguments have been used. This arguments include that such blogs goes against the moral of the people, support homosexualism or support satan's job (in the case of music related blogs).

The attacks had little echoed in the media due to the relatively small community of blogs, although the case have been mentioned in the online version of some papers and in a local television channel.

If it's not in the computer, it doesn't exist.
