EXCLUSIVE: KUALA LUMPUR: The computers of high-ranking officials in agencies involved in the MH370 investigation were hacked and classified information was stolen.
The stolen information was allegedly being sent to a computer in China before CyberSecurity Malaysia – a Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation agency – had the transmissions blocked and the infected machines shut down.
“At that time, there were some people accusing the Government of not releasing crucial information,” Amirudin said.
“But everything on the investigation had been disclosed.”
Flight MH370 with 239 on board went missing on March 8 about 45 minutes after take-off.
