Anonymous has finally had enough of Najib and is hacking Malaysia
So by now, you — despite probably being Singaporean — would have heard of Malaysia’s troubles with 1 Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) and Malaysian Prime Minister (PM) Najib Razak.
All the drama behind PM Najib’s mysterious RM2.6 billion personal “donations” from Middle Eastern “brotherly nations” has effectively led to one very beneficial side effect for us — SGD1 can now buy you RM2.91, as of Friday (14 Aug).
That’s right. Your weekly
massage car wash from our Northern Neighbours just keeps getting cheaper.
But that’s not even the most exciting part.
Anonymous Malaysia strikes
As Singapore celebrated our National Day on 9 Aug, a video, allegedly by hacktivist group Anonymous, surfaced. Like all other Anonymous videos, this one features a person in a Guy Fawkes mask dubbed with a robotic voice.
Guy Fawkes identifies as a member of Anonymous Malaysia, and starts rattling off a list of crimes committed by PM Najib, ranging from the 1MDB scandal, to the conspiracy behind MH370.
The video ends with a call for PM Najib’s resignation, and a threat to attack Malaysian government portals on 29 and 30 Aug, which has been termed Bersih 4.0.
So. Er. There’s another Anonymous Malaysia
Except that not quite the end of the story.
You see, another group — also calling themselves Anonymous Malaysia — have come out to blast the other Anonymous Malaysia, suggesting that
EVERY PEOPLE HAVE THEIR RIGHTS AND PROPER CHANNEL TO PRACTICE DEMOCRACY.
This Anonymous Malaysia is more respectful of the democracy that Malaysians currently enjoy, and does not want to get involved in politics.
So…. who’s the real Anonymous Malaysia?
I guess we’ll all find out come 29 and 30 August.
But what does this mean?
For the rest of us here in Singapore, unless Anonymous Malaysia manages to hack into Johor’s water pipeline, we seem pretty safe.
Let’s all just buy some (Malaysian) popcorn and enjoy the show happening up North.
Oh wait, the elections are coming.
