Was Malaysia Airlines website hacked by ISIS?
According to Foreign Policy, Malaysia Airlines’ website was hacked last month by the Cyber Caliphate. Malaysia Airlines’ website displayed the words “ISIS WILL PREVAIL” and “404 — Plane Not Found: Hacked by Cyber Caliphate.”
The Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, claims to have started a caliphate, that being the land they currently posses. They also claim to have a caliph.
Shortly there after, the website had a lizard and read “Hacked by LIZARD SQUAD.”
Malaysia Airlines has assured users that their server is intact and that all user data is secured. However, Lizard Squad says that Malaysia Airlines is lying and that user information has been compromised.
As Foreign Policy also notes, this is not the first time that hackers have claimed to be associated with the Islamic State when they disrupt website accessibility.
ISIS has been making headline news worldwide after the terrorist group, yes I am calling them a terrorist group, burned a Jordanian pilot to death and then beheaded 21 Egyptian Christians in Libya. Prior to that, they have been known to occupy land in Syria and Iraq, their alleged caliphate, and have been murdering people for several years.
