Malaysia Airlines now suffers from hackers

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

mas website hacked

A group of hackers from the "Lizard Squad", a group known for previous denial-of-service attacks that took down the Sony PlayStation Network and Microsoft's Xbox Live network last month attacked the Malaysia Airlines website on Monday.

Visitors to Malaysia Airlines website were directed to another page that has an headline of “404 - Plane Not Found”. The page also had an image of a tuxedo-wearing lizard and reading "Hacked by LIZARD SQUAD -- OFFICIAL CYBER CALIPHATE".

It is not clear why Malaysia Airlines has become the target of a cyber attack earlier on Monday.

Malaysia Airlines confirms that its Domain Name System (DNS) has been compromised where users are re-directed to a hacker website when www.malaysiaairlines.com URL is keyed in.

At this stage, Malaysia Airlines’ web servers are intact.

The airline has resolved the issue with its service provider and the system is expected to be fully recovered within 22 hours. Malaysia Airlines assures customers and clients that its website was not hacked and this temporary glitch does not affect their bookings and that user data remains secured.
