Submission + - Malaysian TLD compromised, Microsoft, Dell, Kasperskey among those affected (softpedia.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Several high-profile domains from Malaysia have been defaced by TiGER-M@TE, previously known for running the same attack on the Kenyan TLD. The attack was most likely done via DNS poisoning The list of targeted websites includes .com.my domains of Microsoft, Dell, and Kaspersky. The sites were redirected to a page with the attackers banner, giving the illusion that the sites were defaced. The company responsible for the .my domains — MyNIC issued the following statement:

“At the moment, we are undertaking all necessary measures to monitor the situation and prevent further issues. We apologize to our customers for this situation and thank them for their patience”

The result of the attack seemed to be nothing more than sites defaced, with critical financial systems seemingly untouched.
