: Several websites with the ‘.com.my’ and ‘.MY’ domains experienced technical issues when it was hacked this morning by a group known as TiGER-M@TE.
Several major websites that were affected include Google, Dell, Microsoft, MSN Malaysia, Bing, and Kaspersky.
The frontpage of the website was changed with the following text, “Hello Malaysia, you think you are more advanced than us? Respect our workers, we will respect you! Running it since 2007.”
This incident even caught the attention of netizens on Twitter:
Last month, at least 41 government agencies’ website faced technical difficulties after it was hacked by an international group of hackes known as ‘Anonymous.’
In May, PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail’s
blog was allegedly hacked to give an impression that a 'sex video' purportedly involving her daughter, Nurul Izzah Anwar, was genuine.
In March, Google
experienced a technical glitch after a search for “Sabah” showed a result in which the state was described as “illegitimate”. The incident happened during the Malaysia-Filipino standoff over Sabah’s sovereignty.
Meanwhile Google denied its website was hacked.
The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) confirmed
it has received reports that several domain names registered under the domain name '.com.my' (dot com dot my) have been compromised.
