Malaysian Airlines Wesite Hacked.

Malaysian Airlines website was hacked on Monday, visitors to  www.malaysiaairlines.com were greeted with a photograph of a lizard in a top hat, monocle and tuxedo, surrounded by the messages '404 - Plane Not Found' and 'Hacked by Lizard Squad - Official Cyber Caliphate'. A rap song could be heard.

A group calling itself "Official Cyber Caliphate" claimed it hacked the official website of national carrier Malaysia Airlines on Monday.  However, in a statement, Malaysian Airlines said the website was not hacked, but that users were redirected to a hacker website.  "Malaysia Airlines assures customers and clients that its website was not hacked and this temporary glitch does not affect their bookings and that user data remains secured," it said.

According to some local media reports the hacked site carried the words "ISIS will prevail" but this is unconfirmed and no sight of the slogan could be seen.
