Google’s Malaysia domain, google.com.my is reportedly inaccessible for a whole lot of users in the country, with most of them seeing the landing page pictured above. Post that, users are being redirected to a different website, an incident which Google itself confirmed on its Twitter account.

The website shows a landing page which says “Google Malaysia hacked by [email protected]”, a hacker claiming to belong to Bangladesh. Nothing authoritative is available on that front and hence it is unconfirmed whether Google’s main servers have been compromised or not.

Google though, has declined any compromise to its servers.

The search giant issued a statement and said,

We’re aware that some users are having trouble connecting to google.com.my, or are being directed to a different website. Google services for the google.com.my domain are not compromised.  We’ve reached out to the organisation responsible for managing this domain name and hope to have the issue resolved

Google is currently advising all of Malaysian Google users to visit an alternate mirror domain, google.com/ncr.
