The Irrawaddy’s Burmese language website was hacked for a second time in recent days, with a falsified news story posted on the site by unknown hackers on Monday morning.
The fabricated story concerned the health of Burma’s opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, claiming the National League for Democracy (NLD) chairwoman had ovarian cancer and quoting her doctor.
The forged article appeared designed to discredit the NLD leader, casting invented dispersions over relationships between Suu Kyi and other male members of her party.
