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.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
