MANILA, Philippines — Cybersecurity group, Deep Web Konek, apologized for disseminating “inaccurate information” regarding the alleged leak of Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) data on the so-called dark web.

It also acknowledged that the data they had posted on their social media platforms and website about the incident lacked adequate verification.

“Upon thorough investigation and reassessment, we have confirmed the inaccuracy and lack of substantiation in the information shared,” Deep Web Konek said in a statement posted on its Facebook and X (formerly Twitter) accounts on Thursday evening.

“We deeply regret any confusion or concern our actions may have caused, particularly within the esteemed confines of the PSA and its stakeholders,” it added.

Deep Web Konek said they have already taken down all media content related to the alleged leak.

The group also reiterated its “sincere apologies” to the PSA and all affected parties, noting that they “deeply value the trust and confidence placed in us by our esteemed community, and we are resolutely committed to earning back that trust through transparent and responsible conduct.”

On April 3, Deep Web Konek raised concern over an alleged leak of Philippine identification cards on the dark web, indicating yet another government data breach.

Since the supposedly leaked information was Philippine identification cards, the group said it creates an assumption that the files were taken from a government data repository such as the PSA.
