    It's a DNS hack. It's been done before to a number of different Google sites there is clearly some kind of vulnerability that has been solved.

    Just shows that the organization dealing with the Malaysian domain registry isn't well constructed.

    You don't see such issues with the more common domain extensions.

    Lets just be straight here. Google DID NOT get hacked. The people who control the tld .com.my and .my got hacked and the attackers changed google's dns records for the malaysian tld of google.
