MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – The official website of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) was hacked and defaced on Sunday morning.

Visitors of the website were greeted with a black page with what appeared to be a map of the Persian Gulf and a message that read "P E R S I A N G U L F 4 E V E R."

Under these are unknown codes and a line that reads "For more security."

The title of the page has also been altered to read "Hacked By Cocain TeaM."

As of posting time, the altered landing page is gone.

According to NDRRMC Executive Director Benito Ramos, this is the third time that their website was hacked in the middle of disseminating information to local governments.

Ramos stressed the agency's operations are not halted because of what happened.

Ramos said they are now taking action over the hacking incident. – With a report from Dennis Datu, DZMM
