MYNIC Berhad have released their own take on the Google Malaysia’s DNS poisoning incident last night.
“We can confirm there was unauthorised redirection of www.google.com.my and www.google.my to another IP address by a group which called themselves TeaM MADLEETS.
The problem was alerted in the early morning and MYNIC Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) immediately started to resolve the issue. The domain name www.google.com.my has been restored to their correct information at 7.10 am today and www.google.my is still resolving.
At the moment, we are undertaking all necessary measures to monitor the situation and prevent further related issues.”
All in all, we found that it is little bit disturbing that high profile MYNIC’s DNS record has been hijacked twice within a short span of three months. While last night’s incident was not as bad as to what happened in July, we still have to say that MYNIC might want to a closer look at the security of their system in order to protect the interest of their clients.
