Malaysian domain registrar MYNIC Bhd has confirmed that there were unauthorised modifications at its Domain Name Server (DNS) for several major websites, including Google Malaysia and Yahoo Malaysia, on April 14.
With the Feb 16 launch of the .ml domain in the country, Malaysian domain registrar MYNIC has come out to say that the .my domain name is the one and only Country-Code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) representing Malaysia.
Freenom, which has just launched the .ml domain in Malaysia, expects to double its base of active domains to 60 million by April next year.
Edwin Yapp shares his thoughts on why complacency and bureaucracy can be detrimental to national IT security.
The DNS attacks in July and October were inaccurately reported by some media outlets as the victim websites themselves having been hacked; such misinformation only emboldens hacker groups into targeting easier prey for better publicity, writes A. Asohan.
The Malaysian registrar for the ‘.my’ top level domain MYNIC Bhd may have failed to prevent an attempt to breach its Domain Name Server (DNS) by a hacker group known as Madleets, which had led Google Malaysia to experience, for a second time this year, a re-direction of its www.google.com.my and www.google.my search pages late on Oct 10.
It was a week that was all about security, trust and standards in the online sphere – and quite a bit about the lack of all these when it comes to Malaysia, writes A. Asohan.
The registrar for the ‘.my’ top level domain MYNIC Bhd has admitted its servers had been compromised, which led to search queries for certain websites being redirected to temporary sites deliberately set up to give the false impression that the websites concerned had been hacked.
