MANILA – Globe Telecommunications’ website was hacked on Friday by a group complaining about their “poor internet connection service.”

The hackers, who referred to themselves as “BloodSec Hackers,” posted a message that said “Dear Globe, your service on your internet connection is not worthy what we pay for. Do something or expect the consequence. This is just the beginning. Expect Us!”

The group also threatened the company saying that “all your data belong to us now!”

As of Friday afternoon, the pages of Globe remained offline with a message that said “we’re currently conducting a maintenance activity to improve system performance. Sorry for the inconvenience.” The affected pages include mybusiness.globe.com.ph, payroll.globe-csme.com, duointernational.globe-csme.com, and update.globe-csme.com.

The news about the hacking was first reported by Coorms. According to the blog, Globe customers are not able to enjoy efficient internet services because of “Data Capping” and “Throttling.”

“May this message become the key to Globe to finally remove the limitations for their Internet Services,” said Coorms.

Globe Telecommunications has remained mum in this issue.

As of this posting, the official Facebook fan page of Blood Sec Hackers already has 2,120 likes.
