Anonymous hacked us: Hun Many’s youth group

The Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia (UYFC), led by Hun Many, Prime Minister Hun Sen’s son, is claiming that one of its Facebook pages was hacked by international “hactivist” group Anonymous.

In a statement made public yesterday, UYFC accuses Anonymous of hacking the page for political reasons.

“They entered the account, changed the password and posted a number of political [messages] in order to defame the Prey Veng UYFC,” the statement says, adding it wants legal action to be taken against the hacking group.

A number of pages for Anonymous, however, were not claiming responsibility for the hacking yesterday and its members could not be reached. Several youths allegedly linked to Anonymous Cambodia’s branch have been arrested this year and accused of hacking.
