Lizard Squad, the infamous hacking group that made a name for itself over the holidays when it took down both PlayStation Network and Xbox Live, has now conducted a cyberattack on the Malaysia Airlines official website. The site was hacked to display a humorous image of a lizard as well as some text.
Hacker group Lizard Squad, which took down Xbox Live and the Sony Playstation Network last month, have claimed credit for an attack on Malaysia Airlines’ website. The site currently displays a picture of a lizard in a top hat and monocle, as well as the text “404-Plane Not Found” (a reference to flight MH370, which disappeared in March), and “Hacked by LIZARD SQUAD-OFFICIAL CYBER CALIPHATE.” It’s unclear whether or not Lizard Squad is actually linked to Cyber Caliphate, a hacker group that claims to be associated with ISIS. Last month, Cyber Caliphate took control of the U.S. central military command’s Twitter and YouTube accounts.
