OMG! Some Malaysian websites were hacked?! It’s actually not! It’s due to the google DNS redirecting to the hacker site perhaps? It’s due to google DNS poisoned and causing numerous .com.my website redirected and it’s as thought they are being hackeD! “HackeD By TiGER-M@TE” #Bangladeshi HackeR

@GoogleMsia : “We understand there is DNS hijacking on several .com.my domains. Please use http://google.com http://youtube.com in the meantime”

Affected websites :
http://www.dell.com.my/
http://www.microsoft.com.my/
http://www.skype.com.my/
http://www.kaspersky.com.my/
http://www.msn.com.my/

GOOGLE DNS POISONED. NUMEROUS .MY SITES REDIRECTED

If you’re using Google DNS servers for your DNS queries (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4), you might want to either switch to OpenDNS or to your specific ISP’s DNS servers as we have confirmed that search queries involving Malaysian domain names have been poisoned. Poisoned in a sense that you wont be directed to the actual site, but instead to a temporary site with a defaced page.

.com.my website hacked?

Sites affected so far are Dell Malaysia (.com.my), all Microsoft sites on the .my suffix notable MSN Malaysia (.com.my), Skype Malaysia (.com.my), Bing Malaysia (.com.my) as well as antivirus site Kaspersky (.com.my). Google Malaysia (.com.my), Youtube Malaysia (.com.my) and a few other notable .MY domain sites are also inaccessible at the moment.

At time of writing, none of the online banking sites have been poisoned, but it is a very real possibility that they could be until this issue is resolved. If you have to conduct any online transactions, please ensure that the security certificate for the online banking site you are visiting is valid before keying in your personal details (if you choose to stick to Google DNS servers that is).

The quick fix for now would be to change your DNS servers either to your ISP’s own DNS or to switch to OpenDNS. The list of available DNS servers are below.

OpenDNS Home: 208.67.222.222/ 208.67.220.220
Level3 : 209.244.0.3/ 209.244.0.4
TMnet/Unifi: 202.188.0.133/202.188.1.5

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
