The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) is set to investigate the reported breach of its social media account.

In a statement, the PCG revealed that an unknown entity had gained unauthorized access to its official Facebook page.

PCG spokesman Armand Balilo said the unknown hackers uploaded two “malicious short videos” on the agency’s official Facebook page.

“The Coast Guard Public Affairs is now coordinating with the Cybercrime Investigation and Coordinating Center under the Department of Information and Communications Technology to conduct backend operations and assess the security breach,” the PCG statement read.

Presently, the Facebook page of the PCG continues to display movie recap videos.

This is the third time that the PCG’s social media account has been hacked. The agency first lost access to its Facebook account on Feb, 26, but was recovered three days later.

On Feb. 15, the PCG’s X account (formerly Twitter) was also hacked, but access was restored a few hours later.
