SEPANG: All game logs on the Boeing 777 simulator built by missing MH370 pilot Capt Zaharie Ahmad Shah were deleted on Feb 3 this year - over a month before the Boeing 777 went missing, said Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.
Speaking at a press conference at the Sama-Sama Hotel here Wednesday, Khalid said: "What we found from the simulators is the data log from the games was cleared on Feb 3 so the experts are looking at what was cleared.
"Our forensic experts, including those from cybersecurity, Malaysia Airlines and foreign experts are working to restore the erased data logs in the flight simulator," said Khalid.
The simulator had been recovered from Zaharie's Shah Alam home by police and rebuilt at Bukit Aman to be studied by experts.
It had been made with off-the-shelf computer hardware including an ASUS Direct CUII and Rampage IV Extreme motherboard and six flat-screen monitors.
Khalid said there were three games found on Zaharie's simulator - Flight Simulator X, Flight Simulator 9 and X Flight Simulator.
Speaking at the same press conference, Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hussein also addressed this issue, confirming the attempts to recover the deleted data.
"We are hearing all information relevant to the case along with all relevant international agencies that require it. Local and international expertise has been recruited to examine the pilot's flight simulator," said Hishamuddin
However, he cautioned that the pilots were "innocent until proven otherwise."
"All passengers, crew, and ground staff handling the aircraft are being investigated. I will say that the passengers, cabin crew and pilots remain innocent until proven otherwise," said Hishamuddin.
