MANILA, Philippines — Hackers on Monday defaced the website of ABS-CBN's radio dzMM and leaked its database.

Bloodsec International and Anonymous Philippines claimed responsibility for the hacking, which is it said was a call for media to be objective in its reporting.

"Our minds are constantly being invaded by legions of half-truths, prejudices and false facts. One of the great needs of mankind is to be lifted above the morass of false propaganda," the hackers said on the defaced website.

On its Facebook page, Blood Sec Hackers warned other television networks to be fair and objective in reports.

As of this post, the dzMM website has not been restored and visitors to the site are being redirected to the news portal of ABS-CBN.

A few weeks ago, the official website of the Commission on Elections was hacked and its database was leaked by a hacker group associated with Anonymous Philippines.

The hackers called on the poll body to implement security features in the vote counting machines for the May 9 elections.
