The Malaysia Airlines website was hacked by a group claiming be aligned with the Islamic State extremist group, Lizard Squad.
The airline lost two aircraft last year resulting in 537 people dead or missing.
The browser window of the website, www.malaysiaairlines.com, said “ISIS WILL PREVAIL” and the airline’s ticket booking and other services were unavailable. Instead, a full-screen picture of a Malaysia Airlines Airbus Group NV. A380 plane and the messages “404—Plane Not Found,” and “Hacked by Cyber Caliphate,” were displayed on the home page. h/t wsj
Malaysia Airlines spokespeople have not commented. The website remains disabled with a splash page that reads “404 – Plane Not Found.”
