The website of beleaguered carrier Malaysian Airlines has been targeted by a hacking group.

The hackers, calling themselves the “Lizard Squad – Official Cyber Caliphate" group, yesterday (January 26) replaced the website’s main page with a slogan reading “404 - Plane Not Found” in reference to last year’s disappearance of flight MH370.

The message “ISIS will prevail” also briefly appeared in the page’s browser before disappearing.

Malaysian Airlines said customer data and booking information had not be affected by the hack.
