    The new year has done nothing to improve the fortunes of unlucky Malaysia Airlines.

    In the latest in a series of unfortunate events since the MH370 disappearance last year, Malaysia Airlines had their website hacked Monday morning by Lizard Squad, an anonymous hacker group.

    The floundering airline’s website was replaced with an image of a Malaysia Airlines aircraft and the words “404- Plane Not Found” and “hacked by cybercaliphate” at 9am on Monday, with rap track playing in the background, reported Yahoo! Singapore.

    Also listed were two Twitter accounts, @UMGRobert and @UMG_Chris, the owners of an online gaming company. It is not clear why they have been mentioned on the page, and both have taken to Twitter to deny any involvement.

    Malaysia Airlines has declined to give comment on the situation thus far, and is redirecting customers to another website for online check-ins.

    Lizard Squad last made headlines for their involvement in the Microsoft Xbox Live and Sony Playstation Network hacks over Christmas last year.
