The Lizard Squad hacker group crippled the website of Malaysia Airlines for about seven hours on Monday morning, threatening to release stolen information. The website was replaced by a "404 - Plane Not Found" statement, referring to two major airline disaster suffered by Malaysia Airlines in 2014.




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 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.
