PA website hacked

SINGAPORE: The website of the People’s Association (PA) has been hacked and is currently not available.

A spokesman told Channel NewsAsia on Sunday evening that the PA is working to restore the website.

The spokesman said the PA discovered what it described as an "intrusion" on its corporate website, which provides general information on the association and its programmes.

The website is not for transactions.

The websites of four Community Development Councils (CDCs) which are linked to the PA were also affected. Users can’t access the websites of the North West, North East, South East and South West CDCs for the time being. Only the website of Central CDC is not affected.

The association is investigating and is tightening the security of the website.

A viewer sent an email to Channel NewsAsia on Sunday afternoon, pointing out that the website had a picture of a figure in a hoodie, accompanied by the words "Hightech Brazil Hackteam".
