Private X, the Anonymous-affiliated hacktivist collective that has been busy over the past few days defacing Philippines government sites in protest of the country’s Anti-Cybercrime Act of 2012, returns.

The group’s latest targets appear to be the Philippines National Telecommunications Commission, the Bureau of Customs, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority, the SmokeFree site of the Department of Health, the Philippine Nuclear Research Institute, the Philippine Anti-Piracy Team, and Eat Bulaga TV.

Most of the sites have been restored, except for the one of the Bureau of Customs and the “About” webpage of Eat Bulaga TV, which still displays a message that reads “u r alone.”

The Bureau of Customs website appears to be working properly, but if it’s accessed via the 8080 port (customs.gov.ph:8080), it displays the defacement page made by the hackers.

The defacement message is the same as the one published by the hacktivists on the websites defaced on Sunday.
