Personal and sensitive details of officials and job seekers have been leaked after Thailand’s government job portal was attacked by the computer hacker group Anonymous.
The attack is said to be in response to the government’s recent controversial cyber security laws.
The data includes website’s databases, names, surnames, names of companies where the job seeker has applied to, payment details, phone numbers, bank account numbers, emails and encrypted passwords.
The reason given by Anonymous for not leaking the aforementioned details was that the group wants to fight the “Thai Regime” not the citizens.
“We have fought for human, animal and green rights. We have tried to increase public awareness. People have to fight for their rights. We haven’t hacked and fought for ourselves to be famous or to get attention on ourselves. We have done that to get attention on all kind issues. We invite people to fight for their rights. They can be late if they don’t start fighting for their rights “now,” said Anonymous.
