Hacker attack

It was a month ago when my 4-year old “Point of View” blog was attacked by the hacker/plagiarist from the Iloilo capitol, known for his cyber demolition jobs and hacking activities, and deleted, just as great cities in the distant past were burned to the ground by vengeful conquerors. But I didn’t allow that loss to knock me out; I simply put up this new blog.

Last night (Sept. 23), the alarm bells rang me up at around midnight to alert me to another on-going attack by the hacker/plagiarist. It’s good that I have adopted the cold-war practices of the major powers whereby I sweep my laptop computer for viruses and worms regularly, occasionally even twice a day. This new blog is a target for elimination by the powers at the Iloilo capitol, as this has consistently fired issues that fell right on target. The masters of the hacker/plagiarist were not pleased apparently, and ordered a major assault.

Perhaps what irked the hacker/plagiarist’s masters at the capitol was the blog post about Aura Landar’s vindication when the DILG issued memorandum circular 2010-82, which set down in clear terms its policy regarding the status of Philippine Councilors League presidents as members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan. It was a slap on the faces of Gov. Arthur Defensor Sr. and Vice Governor Oscar Richard Garin who blocked Aura’s legitimate claim to the board seat in the interregnum between the end of the last term for councilors and the election of the new PCL president. The label “ignoramus” stuck on their foreheads with the issuance of this MC.

That you are reading this post indicates this blog survived last night’s attack. But I am certain the hacker/plagiarist is not going to give up. I’ll just have to be more security conscious. These past two weeks, the hacker/plagiarist has been sending emails containing worms and viruses to get him the security gates. It’s reassuring that none of these creeping attacks made it through. I hope to repulse subsequent attacks.

This hacker attack makes clear the repugnance with which the hacker/plagiarist’s masters have for the truth. They want to live in a fiction that they are doing well at the capitol. That’s the reason that for them, the elimination of this blog is top priority.
