Hacked DepEd-affiliate page posts provocative content, sparks hilarious reactions among social media users

The Facebook page of the Department of Education (DepEd) for Bagong Nayon II National High School has been hacked and has now been posting provocative content. The said page is a designated space by DepEd to share the activities and recognize the achievements of the students and personnel of the said high school located in Antipolo City, posting pictures of their students from competitions and whatnot.

On Tuesday, July 11, the page has been reportedly hacked and has been posting illicit content, showing various videos that seem to be a snippet of an adult film including Asian women seducing a man, showing off their cleavage, and doing lewd expressions.

However, amidst the worrisome state of the page that is supposed to serve students, people can’t help but laugh and share their comical reaction to what is happening:

To avoid this from happening to you (or your professional page), make sure to be reminded of these steps to strongly secure your account(s):

Have a strong authentication

May it be passwords or biometrics, make sure that it cannot be easily guessed–birthdays and topline information about yourself can easily be scrubbed on your page. Try also using a mix of upper- and lower-case letters with numbers and symbols, and use Two-factor Authentication (2FA) if possible.

Be wary of websites and links

Random websites and links can also steal your personal information and access your accounts. Take this as a reminder to never click that enticing advertisement that’s too good to be true in the first place anyway.

As much as possible, avoid connecting to public Wi-Fi

Connecting to public Wi-Fi can put you at risk as security for this type of connection may not be that strong. If possible, use cellular data or a pocket Wi-Fi when you’re going out.

Keep an eye on any suspicious activities

There’s nothing wrong with being a little more vigilant, if you think someone’s accessing your account, report immediately.
