Hack The Vote 



Hackers have changed the names of political parties on the website for the Indonesian General Election Commision, altering the posted results of the election.
...the United Development Party (PPP) of Vice President Hamzah Haz, whose party color is Islam's green, became the "Pink Grandfather Party"... the Democrats' Party became "the Party of Bottled Mineral Water", in an apparent reference to its saleability. The People's Mandate Party, in sixth, became the "Party that must repair its website first", while 13 others were just changed to "Pink Party", regardless of their party colors. The Crescent and Star Party was named after a singing bird, the Freedom Party took the name of a character in a popular television series, and the New Indonesian Association Party became "Party of Midwives", for no apparent reason.
