MANILA -- The Land Transportation Office’s (LTO) website was defaced by a certain “Bin Laden hacker” claiming to be from Saudi Arabia.

So-called hacktivists have defaced government websites months back due to several reasons, including the implementation of the Cybercrime Prevention Law.

The intention of the hacker of the LTO website is unclear. The website only shows several email addresses on a black backdrop.

This is not the first time that the website was hacked. A hacker allegedly from Turkey defaced the website back in 2007.
