Malaysiakini goes down


Malaysiakini now seems to be having some problem with its servers.

The news portal sent out the following twitter message at 3.58pm: “Both TM and Jaring datacentres are not resolving Malaysiakini effectively. What gives? Looking into alternatives.”

Meanwhile, Sarawak Report is now accessible here.

Recently I detected quite a few ICMP flooding of my connection. I know I am critical of BN, particularly in recent days of the lynas project but I am a nobody and yet subjected to such an attack.

My firewall reports such ddos attack, this is how I know.


Malaysiakini server(s) are either overloaded or being attacked.
Using google DNS, and, I can get immediate Mkini address, but cannot connect to the server. Hopefully , it is not TM or Jaring severe Mkini routing . Otherwise, it means all route for Malaysia ISP are not reliable.

I can’t even connect to malaysiakini using overseas proxy servers. It has probably been subjected to a DDOS attack from the usual suspects.

Thankfully anilnetto and malaysia today are still available 🙂


Will yours be NEXT?


It will be a black day for this country if sites like Malaysiakini is down for the whole duration of a general election because of TM/Jaring data centres.

They should mirror their sites elsewhere.


Wonder if this is a concerted effort by … cybertroopers to bring down PR friendly & neutral sites including yours. One way to slow down the impact of alternate media influence in Sarawak.


Effect of the attack on Sarawak report?

The Star Online never seems to have this problem. Maybe not enough traffic.


Enough reason for us all to boycott TM and Jaring….
