Malaysian Airlines Hacked by Sony Hackers

Malaysian Airlines

The official Malaysia Airlines website has been hacked by a group claiming to support Islamist terror group, ISIS.

On logging into www.malaysiaairlines.com on Monday morning, users were presented with an image of a Malaysia Airlines Airbus and messages that read “404 — Plane Not Found” and “Hacked by Lizard Squad — Official Cyber Caliphate.”

The browser tab also read “ISIS will prevail.”

The Malaysia Airlines homepage later changed to a black background featuring a mocked-up image of a lizard in a top hat complete with monocle. Users were directed to a Twitter page called “@lizardmafia,” which featured a series of largely asinine posts.

The airline, which is currently restructuring itself in the wake of the loss of two of its airliners last year, could not be contacted by telephone.

Tweets from the airline’s official account acknowledged the issue and directed users to a separate URL for its online booking service. This link worked as normal.
