Lizard Squad threatens Malaysia Airlines with data dump

Infamous hacktivists Lizard Squad are threatening to dump data they supposedly snatched during the process of defacing the website of Malaysia Airlines.

Surfers visiting Malaysia Airlines (www.malaysiaairlines.com) website on Monday were confronted by a bragging message from Lizard Squad rather than flight timetables. The airline attributes the apparent defacement to a redirection rather than an actual attack on its site.

Malaysia Airlines is playing down the significance of the attack, saying that customer data or other sensitive information was not exposed, contrary to claims by the hackers behind the assault.

Lizard Squad – which claimed responsibility for an attack that left the site displaying "404 - Plane Not Found" headline above its logo1 and a claim that it's the "Official Cyber Caliphate" – asserts that Malaysia Airlines is "lying about user data not being compromised".

"Going to dump some loot found on www.malaysiaairlines.com servers soon," the group claimed.

Lizard Squad is best known for launching the denial of service attacks that took down the XBox Live and PlayStation Networks at Christmas, shortly before launching a DDoS-for-hire service.

The group, whose attitude and swagger recalls that of LulzSec, has yet to substantiate claims of a deep penetration attack against Malaysia Airlines, which the troubled airline firmly denies.

On Tuesday 18th April, Prime Minister Theresa May called a snap general election for 8th June, taking the nation by surprise. Rather than waiting until 2020, voters will now be casting their ballots in a matter of weeks.
