The list of targets includes several subdomains of the Ministry of Social Affairs, the Justice and Human Rights Ministry, the Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry, the Indonesian Embassy in Tashkent, the Central Statistics Agency, and the Business Competition Supervisory Commission.
One of the first targets of the online protest has been the website of Indonesia’s Supreme Court, which is still offline.
