Hackers seized Constitutional Court website after protester ruling

In response to the Constitutional Court making a controversial choice that pro-democracy demonstrations, and the speeches leaders gave at them, had been thought-about an illegal try to overthrow the federal government and monarchy, computer hackers took over the Court’s website homepage and did some redecorating.
The website was hacked and text was changed to show the phrase “kangaroo court” – a slang term for an authority without credibility that ignores guidelines or laws. The homepage also linked to a music video on YouTube for the track Guillotine by US-based hip-hop group Death Grips. The band hails from Sacramento, California’s capital metropolis and the song is an experimental abrasive hip-hop observe with a low-budget video featuring MC Ride shouting lyrics from a automobile with glitchy black and white static in the windows.
No sweat is comparatively obscure and launched 10 years in the past – a curious alternative for hackers to display but sure to rile tempers for advocates of the Court. The web site hasn’t been restored and, as of this writing, http://www.constitutionalcourt.or.th/ is totally offline.
The hack was most likely in response to the ruling yesterday that mentioned that speeches given by Arnon Nampa, Panupong “Mike” Jadnok, and Panusaya “Rung” Sithijirawattanakul at protest on August 10, 2020 and subsequent demonstrations are advocating for the overthrow of the federal government and the monarchy. They ordered the three activist leaders and all their followers to cease all action in opposition to the dominion and state. While the ruling carries no quick punishment, it may be used in different pending and future circumstances against activists and supporters..
