Malaysia Airlines website hacked

PETALING JAYA - The Malaysia Airlines (MAS) website was apparently hacked Monday morning by a group calling itself "Cyber Caliphate".

The home page of the website was replaced by a photo of a MAS Airbus A380, with the words "404 - Plane Not Found".

Cyber Caliphate also included the Twitter accounts of @umgrobert and @umg_chris as their contacts. Other names mentioned in the website were Lizard Squad, UGNazi, NATHAN NYE and HENRY BLAIR STRATER.

The Star Online has been trying to reach MAS for a response to the alleged hacking. As at 11am, some users could access the site while some still saw the hacked version of the website.

Some mobile users trying to access the website have encountered Error 521, which means that the original web server refused the connection from domain provider CloudFlare.
