Hackers claiming to have links to the international activist group Anonymous have defaced dozens of websites belonging to Australian businesses.
Anonymous Indonesia tweeted a list of more than 100 Australian sites it had hacked on Sunday, saying the action was in response to reports of spying by Australia.
The websites, defaced with a message reading "Stop Spying on Indonesia", are mainly owned by small Australian businesses and seemed to have been chosen at random.

News of Australia's role in a US-led surveillance network could damage relations with Indonesia, Australia's nearest Asian neighbour and an important strategic ally.
Reports that the Australian embassy in Jakarta was being used for spying prompted Indonesia to summon the Australian ambassador on Friday.
China demanded an explanation from the US after the Sydney Morning Herald reported Australian embassies across Asia were part of the US operation.
