Google & Yahoo Malaysia Domain Back To Normal Within 24 Hours

SERI KEMBANGAN, Selangor, 14th April 2015 – MYNIC has confirmed that there were unauthorised modifications at Domain Name Server (DNS) for several major websites including Google and Yahoo Malaysia.

“Our initial investigations found that the redirections are done through unauthorized modifications at DNS level. Our team now is taking all necessary measures to monitor the situation and prevent further issues. We can assure customer’s data is not affected by today’s incident”, said Hasnul Fadhly Hasan, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of MYNIC.

MYNIC is closely collaborating with Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) in resolving the incident. Some Internet users may still see the affected pages within 24 hours due to the way DNS works.

Hasnul added, ”As part of our ongoing efforts to safeguard domain names and improve the security, we have introduced a second layer of identity verification called Two Factor Authentication (2FA). This will ensure only the right authorised person is receiving the access code and able to change the domain name records. Moving forward, we’re also looking to further enhance other layer of DNS validation to ensure end-to-end protection”.

MYNIC is responsible in ensuring the development of domain name industry as part of ICT infrastructure in Malaysia.
