The Malaysia Today website has been hacked and defaced. Now it’s simply not downloading as Raja Petra is having difficulty restoring it due to a poor Streamyx connection.
A couple of days ago, the Aliran website came under bombardment with close to 60,000 hits coming from two unknown IP addresses within the space of a few minutes. “The account was being attacked,” said the webhosting network security administrator. As a result, he temporarily disabled the website and and restored it hours later, after blocking those IPs.
On 19 June, Mahathir’s chedet.com website was “locked” because it was deemed to be a “suspected spam blog”. His webmaster was forced to change the domain name from www.chedet.com to test.chedet.com
This is the message on the “new” chedet.com website:
On Friday June 19th, chedet.com was locked by the administration of Bloggers.com for what was termed as “suspected spam blog”. Following that chedet.com has not been able to publish any new posting pending approval by Bloggers.com.
Despite repeated appeals Bloggers.com have yet to “unlock” chedet.com to allow for posting of new comments. Due to this measures have been taken to migrate chedet.com from Bloggers.com in an effort to avoid further disruption, hence the new page set up.
Is this all just a coincidence?
