JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - Investigators from Criminal Investigation Agency (Bareskrim) of the Indonesian National Police (Polri) have arrested CA (24) and AY (22), two hackers of the Central Jakarta District Court's (SIPP) Case Tracking Information System site, http://sipp.pn-jakartapusat.go.id/.
CA was arrested in the Kebagusan area, South Jakarta, while AY was arrested at Green Pramuka Apartment, Central Jakarta.
CA, an elementary school graduate, is the founder of the Typical Idiot Security community, while AY graduated from junior high school. Both are known to have learned hacking by self-learning.
During the hacking process, the perpetrators lived in the apartment they rented.
"The two suspects learned by self-taught. CA graduated from elementary school, and AY graduated from junior high school. They did plan to hack the Central Jakarta District Court website," said Head of Subdirectorate of Cyber Crime at Bareskrim Polri Police Chief Commissioner Reinhard Hutagaol at the Polri Headquarters in Jakarta.
Reinhard said that AY earlier sent a message to CA through Facebook Messenger asking for help hacking the Central Jakarta District Court website.
"AY asked for help from the CA since AY did not find a weak spot on the website," he said.
The two perpetrators then hacked the Central Jakarta Court website and changed its appearance by showing a picture of someone wearing blue trousers, a hoodie long sleeve shirt, and carrying a red and white flag while covering his face.
"AY explained that he felt sympathy with the case of Lutfi Alfiandi who was on trial at Central Jakarta District Court," he said.
After CA helped AY hack the site, AY gave IDR400,000 to CA.
The evidence seized by the police in this case was a bundle of server logs on the site of http://sipp.pn-jakartapusat.go.id, one Alienware laptop model P69F, two cellphones and sim cards, one ID card in the name of CADF, and one Asus laptop.
For their actions, the police ensnared the two suspects with Article 46, Article 48 and Article 49 paragraphs (1), (2) and (3) Jo Article 30 paragraphs (1), (2) and (3) of Law Number 19 of 2016 concerning Amendment of Law No.11 of 2008 concerning Information and Electronic Transactions, which can be sentenced to 10 years in prison.
