Malaysia Today, Aliran websites attacked

33
154

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?

This is getting very very ridiculous.

Is it possible to start a petition on this? Maybe call it “Bring Back Cyberspace Freedom”….

they must have done a DOS attack on MT and coordinate that with (a telecom firm) capping RPK’s line speed. Easy to do when they control the backbone infrastructure.

maybe RPK should try to get some help from the Israelis!

Hacked, attacked? What goes around comes around. Recently attended a security seminar in May held by MyNIC. Check this link out http://www1.mynic.net.my/myseminar/MAY08/seminar.html Abu Ubaidah Md Zain , Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission stated that they were working on a project to blacklist malicious website from the DNS server itself. At that point, they reported that they’re on testing stages. What i’m afraid, they used it against oppositions sites and blogs. I know i would if i can’t get rid of them. What’s even scarier, are we becoming like China? The golden firewall? Anil, you may not know me but i’m… Read more »

MT went on last night but today, it is very slow and seems on and off, meaning it is still being under DOS attack..

The … cybertrooper is really good at hacking sites that are against them…..

They can block the sites, but the can’t never block the truth. The truth will prevail.

Malaysia Today is accessible behind a proxy. I have tried and it works. For those who want to read MT, get behind a proxy, but MT last updated was done yesterday. RPK and his men must be having trouble to update it. Sihh……………

Hello anil, It looks like everybody has now become so dependent on Internet because spceulation, conspiracy and gossips can be spread in here in a swift moment. However we cant blame the government for the locked website. It could be other people doing dirty works to make bad impression for the current government. Since we all are so curious of new informations derived in this cyber world, one could not imagine if people will do anything that could make their objectives achieve. It is either in our beloved country between the government and the oppositon or the third party which… Read more »

There are many these days who think that if they are so “smart” that they can deface a website or deny access to it, they have fought as warriors for their cause, whatever it may be. Punks. Not all that different from those who think that if they shout louder, or can pay enough money to get large numbers to shout loudly on their behalf, then they have won. Dissenting views is only met with closed minds. If Aliran does not sound sweet to them, then it’s “war”! Bah! These punks are also not all that different from those who… Read more »
