Hackers Taking Down SM Websites in Support of "Occupy SM Baguio"

As I write this (January 26, 4:03 PM), the following websites by SM are down and cannot be accessed:

http://www.smmallofasia.com/
http://www.smsupermalls.com/

An article from Interaksyon attributed the attack to "a local supporter of hacktivist group Anonymous."

A Twitter user with the handle @cyb3rk4m0t3 through a series of tweets is implying that he/she and company are behind the attacks.

The user's last tweet is the following:

It can be recalled that last January 20, Baguio people held a protest rally against SM Baguio condemning the mall's plans of expanding SM Baguio. For the expansion, over a hundred trees will be either cut or earth balled. The protest rally was dubbed "Occupy SM Baguio".
