Although Malaysia Airlines said user data was not compromised, Lizard Squad posted a screenshot that appeared to be a passenger flight booking from MA's internal email system - and promised that it was "going to dump some loot found on malaysiaairlines.com servers soon."

 

The hacker group has been linked to multiple high-profile cyberattacks over the past year, including bringing down Microsoft Xbox Live and Sony PlayStation Network on Christmas Day.
