Local PH Websites hacked? Do we have any say?

Simply put, if as in the news…. the UP Website was hacked by suspected hackers from China. The “defacing” is considered an insult to the Philippines in the light of  the opposing Scarbarough Shoal claims  of the Chinese and Filipinos.

Can we make them liable? or are we sitting ducks if the hacker is from abroad

to answer the question, can  we consider a website a property?

if yes,considered property damage hence the accused may be held liable, venue would be where they committed the crime. remember in venue is jurisdictional.
