Defaced websites in Malaysia

Over the last couple of days, there are reports in the Malaysian blogger scene (see here and here) about governmental webpages that have been defaced, probably by hackers from Indonesia.

Background: probably the crackdown of the Malaysian government on illegal immigrants and the unhappiness with certain groups over this.

The larger issue? Unsecured websites, that might lack the latest security features. If you relate those issues to Malaysia's aspiration to become a haven for ICT developments, it surely doesn't look good.
