Hackers now target PM Dept’s website


After crippling over 41 websites in its first attack, hackers now have set their eyes on Prime Minister’s Department’s official website on July 4.

(Free Malaysia Today) – After crippling over 41 Malaysian government’s websites on June 16, computer hackers now threaten to hack the Prime Minister’s Department’s official website next month.

In a Youtube posting titled Ops2.mov, the hackers, known as ‘Anonymous’ said the attack targetted at www.pmo.gov.my would take place on July 4, at 1.37pm.

The video was uploaded to Youtube on Friday.

Alleging that the Malaysian government was abusing human rights by blocking sites such as Wikileaks and The Pirate Bay, Anonymous warned the Malaysian authorities that it would make July 4 a day to be remembered by crippling the nation’s infrastructure.

“We are Anonymous, We are Legion, We do not forgive, We do not forget. Expect us,” the posting said.

Last week, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) said Anonymous hacked 51 government websites and crippled 41 out of it but no official data were compromised.
