Lizard Squad Hacks Malaysia Airlines Website


The Malaysia Airlines website was comprised on January 26 by hackers who claimed to be from the Lizard Squad, a group known for denial-of-service attacks. Lizard Squad, who late last year took down the Sony PlayStation Network and Microsoft’s Xbox Live Network, threatened to release important data from Malaysia Airlines.

The hackers at first changed the website to display a message saying “404 – Plane Not Found” (an apparent reference to the airlines’ mysterious loss of flight MH370 in 2014) and that it was “Hacked by Cyber Caliphate”, with a photo of one of the airline’s Airbus A380 superjumbo jets. The browser tab for the website read “ISIS will prevail”. The national carrier’s homepage was replaced with an image of a tuxedo-wearing lizard, and read “Hacked by LIZARD SQUAD – OFFICIAL CYBER CALIPHATE”.



Malaysia Airlines released a statement confirming the news:

“Malaysia Airlines confirms that its Domain Name System (DNS) has been compromised where users are re-directed to a hacker website when URL is keyed in. At this stage, Malaysia Airlines’ web servers are intact.

“The airline has resolved the issue with its service provider and the system is expected to be fully recovered within 22 hours. The matter has also been immediately reported to CyberSecurity Malaysia and the Ministry of Transport.

“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 is unclear why Malaysia Airlines was targeted. According to reports, the government is concerned about the news of Malaysian citizens being lured to the ISIS cause in the Middle East in the recent past. Malaysian authorities last week acknowledged that they detained 120 people suspected of having ISIS sympathies or planning to travel to Syria.

  1. i guess its about damn time anonymous take down lizard squad, they are doing more harm then good, and they them self claim to be related with ISIS,doesnt matter what their intention be it a joke or maybe a serious thing, so it your call to do something about it if you really care that is..

  2. Not sure but i dont think this was the work of Lizard Squad, as all they did was re-directing people to a website of Lizard Squad, The webservers were still intact.

  3. Agendas are formulated designed to give the powerful more power. Chaos is created, and media blitzed. Then cries go out for solution. Laws are passed which could never have been passed without the chaos. The order, has reigned through deception of the masses, and the agenda is accomplished.” – James Arthur
    how do we know that these “terrorist” groups are not government created? after all, after the US “pulled out” of Afghanistan, suddenly, ISIS gained use of drones. plus, the whole 911 thing and then the whole country waves their flags and supports the Iraqi invasion.
    this is just another step up the stairs.

  4. interesting these things… though it seems the picture of the plane? it looks either someone from anonymous took the picture, or the lizard squad took the picture then loaded it up… but i am leaning more toward anonymous taking the picture you guys need to be careful it wasn’t a detailed but somebody computer smart could maybe figure out who that person is and there you go ya done for.. any who GO anonymous i fully support you guys at least your doing something about the world and changing it for the better, we need more people like you! XD

  5. Lizard Squad needs to stop, they are doing no benefit to mankind or freedom, they are only doing this to harass, and cause problems. They’re now coming too far and as I was always told “Karma’s a bitch”.
