Government websites in Malaysia were hacked

I recently went to utusan.co.my (even though i'm not a big fan of utusan and berita harian) and the one of the main titles is "51 laman web .gov.my digodam, 41 alami gangguan" Wow, isn't it scary? yes it is. Just imagine if your site or even blog was hacked. It must be painful in the ass! because i don't think you can logged into your account because i bet the hacker will change the password. However, you still can recover it by asking your web host to reset your password. But this could happen only if they have admin privilege on their system. Admin privilege means someone who can do anything and even can view the owner's password. In fact, database admin also can do this by searching your username and manually change your password in the database field. As soon as your blog or site's password has been reset, make sure you change your password with combinations of CAPITAL, SMALL, SYMBOLS AND NUMBERS.

So here some suggestion to create a very strong password. As you can see, the password is a combination of CAPITAL, SMALL, SYMBOLS AND NUMBERS.

P:s I hate utusan and berita harian because they are bias in their writing especially about overseas issues. Sometimes i find what they've written on those site are totally untrue!!
