A former official in the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh received a two-year jail term Monday for hacking the province's website and posting explicit content.

According to the indictment, Phan Ngoc Quan, who used to be in charge of the provincial Department of Information and Communications' portal, hacked the site www.travinh.gov.vn many times between 2010 and 2011.

He embedded explicit images and linked the site to sex websites.

The hacker was not detected until the local government asked for support from the Ministry of Public Security late last year.

Quan pleaded guilty to illegally accessing the internet work of others at a trial held by the Tra Vinh Province's People's Court.
