Google Malaysia has had its service disrupted due to a DNS redirection.
Users were redirected to a page that read:
“Google Malaysia Hacked by Tiger-Mate. #Bangladeshi Hacker.”
In a tweet, the search giant encouraged users to visit its country-neutral page until it resolved the issue.

Sofar, the motive and origin of the attack aren’t yet known, but it’s similar to a DNS hijacking case in February that disrupted access to Google’s Vietnam homepage.
As of now, it appears that Google Malaysia is now back online, but Google is yet to confirm that the issue has been sorted.
