    Malicious attack on the media facebook pages


    M-Media:
    April 23, 2013

    M-Media Facebook
    pages and several other media pages, which represent democratic and minority
    rights for Muslims and ethnic minority groups in Burma, had been maliciously
    attacked.

    According to some
    sources, M-Media confirm that the attackers were the members of racist and
    neo-Nazi campaigns in Burma.

    The Burmese hackers
    based in several locations have been attacking M-Media web site, m-mediagroup.com,
    since July last year when ethnic Muslims were being massacred in Rakhine state
    by the government and racists (please refer to Human Right Watch report here (http://www.hrw.org/news/2013/04/22/burma-end-ethnic-cleansing-rohingya-muslims).

    As you are well aware
    of, an anti-Muslim violence recently took place in central and several other
    places of Burma.  (Please refer to BBC World here –  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-22243676).

    M-Media team realized
    that the Facebook must have received tons of report about M-Media Facebook
    pages because of the cunning attack uses a script which reports automatically
    to Facebook without human intervention.

    Anti-Muslim and
    Neo-Nazi campaigners are targeting the websites of News Agencies and their
    Facebook Fan pages as well as peace activists’ Facebook accounts. They have
    attacked their Facebook pages/accounts since 21st April by the following means.

    M-Media have noticed
    this link https://code.google.com/p/myanmar-facebook/ which
    encourages, in a cheated way, all the Burmese, especially the Buddhists
    majority to report the Facebook pages of the media, by using Browsers Add-On so
    that the Facebook admin will receive tons of report within a very few time
    frame.

    And this is the
    another link – https://code.google.com/p/myanmar-facebook/wiki/welcome which
    mentions the list of the victims of theirs.

    M-Media have
    translated those two links for ready reference. Translated versions are
    available in undermentioned links.

    Due to the ignorance
    of Burmese government, there are several Facebook pages which propagate severe
    hate messages against Muslims. And the personnel behind those pages are highly
    suspected for this attack too.

    Today morning,
    Facebook team published back the M-Media and other
    Facebook pages which had been attacked.
