Lizard Squad Hacks Malaysia Airlines to Make a Crap 404 Joke

By Gary Cutlack on at

Improvisational global hacking collective Lizard Squad has another hack to its name now, after taking down the website of Malaysia Airlines.

The reason? For the lulz, of course.

Indeed, it seems to be mainly because someone thought of a joke to make, with the portal for the flier replaced with the message "404 - Plane Not Found" -- a reference to the ongoing hunt for the missing flight MH370 -- and a video.

The lizard people also claim to have some "loot" found in the hack to dump online at some point, too, so there's that. [TNW]
