Google Malaysia hacked: cyber-attack re-directs page

GOOGLE'S page in Malaysia has been hit by problems, after the site appears to have been re-directed to a page made by hackers claiming credit for the cyber-attack.

Visitors to the Malaysian site see a message telling them that "Google Malaysia Hacked by Tiger-Mate #Bangladeshi Hacker".

No data has been compromised, according to Google, and the services themselves are still running.

The problem appears to have arisen from the organisation that manages the technology that allows URLs to point towards websites, according to a Google statement given to Reuters. The search giant is working with that organisation, MYNIC, to resolve the problem.

MYNIC is run by the country's ministry of communications and multimedia. It runs all websites that end with the .my suffix, including google.com.my.

A similar hack hit Malaysia Airlines in January, and was claimed by Lizard Squad. That time, the hacking group claimed that it had accessed personal information during the hack, but promises that it would release the data seemed to go unfulfilled.
