At a press conference yesterday, October 12, Senator Bam Aquino disclosed that at least five email accounts of his staff and Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan were hacked from March 21 to October 11.
“We were able to uncover that some of our Senate staff have been hacked and have been used to send falsified e-mails to other individuals,” Aquino said.
However, netizen Knapp Ramirez, a Network Security Professional from Doha contradicted the issue of hacking disclosed by Aquino.
On his Facebook post, Ramirez said, if the email that was hacked were on a yahoo server, a notification will be sent to an alternate email address or mobile number.
“If yahoo mail yan, mag inform sa iyo ang mail server that it was opened in another country (via alt email or mobile number),” Ramirez said.
Ramirez also advice Aquino to fire his story adviser whom he called “bobo”.
“Better fire out your story adviser (bobo eh). Masyado kayo pa bebe, T$@”*%# naman! Ginagawa nyong bobo pinoy hoping that we are naive to believe such stories,” Ramirez said.

“First of: if yahoo mail yan, mag inform sa iyo ang mail server that it was opened in another country (via alt email or mobile number) if US ang claims nyo na hacker (i’ll leave the VPN issues kasi you wont know if its via vpn or not kung email lang babasehan mo natangahan ako sa iyo nun). Kasi if you can track that vpn was used, you track which ip it will come from considering that its a national security at stake and youre a senator. Medyo sablay eh. Better fire out your story adviser (bobo eh). Masyado kayo pa bebe, T$@”*%# naman! Ginagawa nyong bobo pinoy hoping that we are naive to believe such stories.
Secondly: if na hack yan, there is a very high probability na di nyo na marecover yan because password will be changed after. Contradicting sa sinabi mo sen aquino na nakita nyo yung email sa draft.
Conclusion: isa sa mga staff nyo ang gumawa nyan. It was never been hack in the first place. Kasi na open nyo pa ang email. I cant bare to see you in national tv kasi i can see how stupid you guys are and so obvious na napakatanga ng story nyo. Sana if you can up to such story, ask an IT to cover all flaws ng istoryang barbero.
