Cyberattacks June 2011 – Targets Malaysia Government Website
A hacker group had threaten to attack Malaysia Government web site and the usual attack from hacker groups comes in the form of DDOS, SQL Injection, Sphere Phishing and etc. Attacks from these groups are usually politically motivated aiming to compromise the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of the data/services provided.
The group, calling themselves Anonymous, later posted at pastebin.com the reason for launching an attack on the Malaysian government website.
“We have seen the censorship taken by the Malaysian government, blocking sites like The Pirate Bay and WikiLeaks. Malaysia is one of the world’s strictest governments, even blocking out movies and television shows.”
Anonymous said these acts of censorship which take away basic human rights were inexcusable.
“The Internet is here for freedom, without fear of government interference. Your structured government has done the talking, and we hear loud and clear.
“We fear that if you make further decisions to take away human freedom, we are obligated to act fast and have no mercy.”
The group signed off with “Expect us”.
