    A Portuguese hacker collective has defaced 45 Indonesian web servers in
    protest over conditions in East Timor. On Saturday, August 1, visitors to
    sites such as Indoglobal Business Services, an internet service provider,
    and Indowebdesign.com, a design firm, were confronted with a demand for a
    referendum on freedom for East Timor and the release of jailed Timorese
    leader Xanana Gusmao and other political prisoners. Most of the hacked
    sites have since been restored. According to hacker site AntiOnline, the
    Kaotik Team spared Indonesian universities as a gesture of solidarity with
    students, who have also been protesting government atrocities. East Timor
    was invaded by Indonesia in 1974, shortly after Portugal had liberated its
    former colony.
