KOTA BARU: The Communications and Multimedia Ministry will take immediate action regarding the data breach incident that hit online payment service provider, iPay88 (M) Sdn Bhd, says Tan Sri Annuar Musa.

The Communications and Multimedia Minister said the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), the Personal Data Protection Department (PDPD) and CyberSecurity Malaysia (CSM) were looking into the matter and met with iPay88 Friday (Aug 12) morning.

“The case is still being investigated further by iPay88’s vendor, SISA from Singapore, who identified the threat Cobalt Strike being used.

“The affected server has been taken offline for further investigation. SISA’s investigation is still ongoing and iPay88 will inform PDPD and CSM of all results,” he told reporters during a walkabout around Kok Lanas here Friday.

Media outlets previously reported that iPay88 confirmed that a cybersecurity incident had occurred that may have compromised consumer credit card data.

The company reportedly issued a statement saying that since May 31, it had engaged a cybersecurity expert to address the issue and that they were working closely with the authorities. – Bernama
