TH: Five hacktivists held for attacks on websites
At least five suspects have been detained for alleged involvement in the latest hacking of government and security agency websites, some of which were knocked out of service temporarily due to cyberattacks, National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) sources have said.
The crackdown is expected to lead to the round-up of about 100 people believed responsible for the attacks after changes to the new Computer Crime Bill were approved last week by the National Legislative Assembly.
An online netizen group against the single Internet gateway (#opsinglegateway) announced its opposition to the new computer crime law on its Facebook page and vowed to attack state websites if the legislation was not scrapped.
