Users of Google’s page in Malaysia saw a message on a different, fraudulent landing page telling them that “Google Malaysia Hacked by Tiger-Mate #Bangladeshi Hacker.”

The hack seemed to occur at a third-party organization, MYNIC, that manages Google’s domain name.

According to Google, none of the search giant’s data was compromised.

MYNIC, which is operated by the country’s government, runs all websites that end with the .my suffix, including google.com.my.
