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.
