Malaysian Airlines Website Hacked With '404-Plane Not Found' Message


The website of Malaysian Airlines has been taken over by hackers who have uploaded a picture of a lizard on the front page along with a message which read "404 - Plane Not Found", an apparent reference to the missing flight MH370.

According to the Mirror, the front page was replaced by the picture of a lizard wearing a black tuxedo, a monocle and a pipe.

A rap song also plays when one accesses the site that seems to refer to the Islamic State (IS) militant group.

The hack is done by Lizard Squad, a group known for so-called denial of service attacks.

The group also posted a message on its Twitter account saying "Going to dump some loot found on http://www.malaysiaairlines.com/ servers soon."

The airlines authorities said it could take up to 22 hours to restore the website.
