Hackers

Hackers Disrupt 41 Malaysian Government Websites.

Early on this morning really put some pressure on me. This was due to some server and internet services in my workplace was having some trouble to accessing some web sites and portals. This is quite a significant impact on my daily tasks due because 70% of my daily tasks was depended on Internet access.
My assignments related to spreading department's information and internal activities, including posters and so on. So it is very difficult for my work, especially for searching and reference materials for the work of graphic design.

When I was looking for a solution with the help of some friends from the technical and multimedia management units, then everyone started talking about hacker attacks on a Malaysian government websites and portals.

And when the situation just under control and all systems and access that related to internet and server links began to improve, I began to access the latest information related to the problem, and I've found this :

Nothing much to talk about this matter since i was not an expert person on this stuff, and i had too much 'free time' but in my own opinion, this matter just an alert to everybody, no matter if you are individual, as a party, organization and so on, we must storing our personal and private information with the best and secure safety..as much as we can.
