August 2017: AKATI Consulting Discusses 33 Malaysian Websites Hacks Following SEA Games Error

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (23 August 2017) - According to initial local media reports on Monday 21 August 2017, an Indonesian hacker group ExtremeCrew defaced some 27 Malaysian websites, apparently in response to an error in the official Kuala Lumpur SEA Games 2017 souvenir booklet where the Indonesian flag was shown upside down.

The hacked sites featured the booklet with the message 'Bendera Negaraku Bukanlah Mainan,' ['my national flag is not a plaything'] accompanied by the Indonesian patriotic anthem 'Tanah Air Beta.' Malaysian officials have already  apologised to Indonesia for the error after the issue was raised by the Indonesian Youth and Sports minister Imam Nahrawi on Saturday.

When Computerworld Malaysia reached out to some digital forensics experts for early insights, all three agreed that hacktivism motivated the current attack. Computer forensics investigator and expert witness Krishna Rajagopal said Malaysian businesses must take more seriously the advisories issued by CyberSecurity Malaysia.

"Local businesses and those who use the internet must adhere to the simple instructions that have been repeatedly given by both CyberSecurity Malaysia and local cybersecurity professionals," said Rajagopal.

"Attacks are always going to take place and both government and industry sectors need to elevate security beyond just being a compliance mechanism," he said. "Overall, we are still a very reactive driven society. I am sure the people affected by the latest will take security more seriously now that they've been hacked ... but the question is for how long?"
