The Cambodia Daily reports that two unnamed men, accused of being members of Anonymous Cambodia, were recently arrested and charged with attacking the website of the country's Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) and taking it offline for more than two hours on April 30, 2014 (h/t Softpedia).

"We have collected enough evidence to prove the two perpetrators are guilty of hacking activities and we will send them straight to court," ACU chairman Om Yentieng told the Daily.

Yentieng said the SQL injection attack on the ACU's website was launched at 2 a.m. on the 30th, but wasn't successful in taking the site down until 7 a.m.

"Our staff who are well educated in information technology are smarter than those hackers and our staff was strong enough to defend and restore the website, and the site is now working again," Yentieng said.

On April 7, 2014, two other alleged members of Anonymous, Bun King Mongkolpanha and Chu Songheng, were arrested and charged with involvement in attacks on government websites in the fall of 2013.
