Not really, or at least I think it wasn’t. Here’s why:
A Malaysian contact on my multiply thought that the Malaysia Prime Minister Office website got hacked and posted a screen shot of the hacked page with the URL in it.
On closer look, I suspected something amiss about the URL, why would a the PMO site link to a geocities hosted page?
I tried to putting a different URL in place of the geocities URL and it worked, I successfully “hacked” the Malaysia PMO website.
So I shared my findings with the Multiply contact and by the time I was done posting the reply to his post, the Malaysia PMO website was down and “under construction”.
I can’t be sure what exactly happened, but I’m guessing the tech support behind the PMO website must have had a knee jerk reaction from the screen shots that might have been circulated. If so, then it has been yet another case of self-pwn. Way to go, neighbour!
Hmm… Does anyone have a screen shot of the PMO page with a pr0n site “hacked” into it? :p
