LOCUSTS.ORG, a group of young Filipino hackers, wants to set up a non-profit organization that will help Philippine authorities make the Internet more secure in this country. Composed of students and system administrators currently either doing freelance or full-time work, Locusts.org members said they were willing to volunteer their "services" to the PH-CERT (Philippine Computer Emergency Response Team) or the National Bureau of Investigation's Computer Fraud division.

    In an interview with INQ7.net Locusts.org member Eyestrain -- who has gained international notoriety after a series of attacks and subsequent media coverage -- said that the group is also thinking of setting up a mailing list on Net security.

    "There are now more hackers out there trying to break into the servers here in the Philippines and Asia," said the bespectacled Eyestrain.
