Google Malaysia Experiences DNS Redirect Attack

According to the news from Domain Forum of China on April 15th, is reporting that Google Malaysia was hit by a DNS redirect hack. It looks like Google’s actual servers were not comprimised and not everyone accessing the local Google site is being affected.

From the article:

Some users visiting the Google Malaysia website are seeing a hacked page that says “Google Malaysia hacked by TiGER-M@TE”.

Although TiGER-M@TE claims to have hacked the search giant’s local website, it seems to be another DNS redirect attack on the .my domain.

Google Malaysia has also confirmed that its servers have not been compromised. The problem is not affecting all users – a quick check revealed that Maxis and Digi users are not seeing the hacked page.

“We’re aware that some users are having trouble connecting to, or are being directed to a different website. Google services for the domain are not compromised. We’ve reached out to the organisation responsible for managing this domain name and hope to have the issue resolved,” the company said in a statement.
