Following one of the most expansive cases of DNS poisoning in the country that happened on July 1, where Malaysian domain registrar MYNIC was accessed by hackers and its DNS data compromised, Kaspersky Lab Malaysia has released a statement to its customers confirming that no data was compromised in the attack.
In its statement, Kaspersky Lab Malaysia confirmed that the MYNIC attack affected several .my domains, including the company’s own kaspersky.my, where the affected domains were redirected to a temporary site with a defaced page. However, the security company has confirmed – for its domain at least – that the attack did not go beyond the redirecting of its page. Specifically,
- no Kaspersky Lab servers or resources were breached during the attack;
- the attack did not result in any unauthorized access to Kaspersky Lab resources on the Kaspersky.my website;
- no sensitive data or websites belonging to Kaspersky Lab were compromised during the incident.
While Kaspersky Lab did not mention if the other .my domains were compromised in other ways, the statement should provide some relief to Kaspersky Lab customers in Malaysia – as well as some measure of context regarding the scale of Monday’s attack.
