On June 12, the online newspaper VOV (member of The Voice of Vietnam) published two articles about Nguyen Phuong Hang, wife of Huynh Uy Dung – billionaire owner of the tourist, cultural and historical area of Dai Nam. They are titled “Phuong Hang and His Live Broadcasts on Social Deviance: Time for Strict Punishment” and “Immoral to Freely Insult Anyone Online”.
However, seeing these articles, some people have had extreme reactions creating clone accounts to attack the VOV Online Newspaper platform. In particular, on June 13, they carried out distributed denial of service attacks against this platform; attacked the VOV Fanpage on Facebook; sent letters, messages and made appeals to insult the interviewees mentioned in the articles.
After the incident, the Ministry of Information and Communications asked Viettel and the VNPT to urgently handle the attack and in the afternoon of the same day, the online newspaper VOV was successfully recovered. .
More seriously, on the Facebook page of NHK (born 1987 and living in Ho Chi Minh City) – the IT specialist helping Phuong Hang locate anyone online who is against her, there is an article telling people how to attack the online journal VOV, with encouragement for people to actually carry out attacks. This content shows signs of violation of the law.
For the moment, A05 is dealing with the matter.
