Hacking group ‘Lizard Squad’ gained control of the Malaysia Airlines website today (Mon 26) and redecorated it with a rather strong ‘Plane Not Found’ message.

The site was down for several hours, and during that time, the group unsurprisingly took credit for it. Although, we’re not sure they needed to do so since the message read “404 – Plane Not Found. Hacked by Lizard Squad – Official Cyber Caliphate.”

The airline was quick to respond on Facebook with a statement, claiming that no data – or “loot” – was stolen during the breach.

Both Malaysia Airlines and Lizard Squad had a busy year in 2014 for various reasons, so it comes as no surprise that in the first month of 2015 they’ve already butted heads.

The website is now back online. And this is usually where I would make a witty comment. But I’m going to pass on this one…
