Beyond the Headlines: Beras Madani, remove ceiling price & Malaysia hacked [NSTTV]

KUALA LUMPUR: In the latest episode of Beyond the Headlines, we address three issues, delving into cybersecurity, rice industry challenges and potential solutions.

The hacker group ROOTK1T, which claimed responsibility for yesterday's attack on the National Population and Family Development Board (LPPKN) database, is suspected to be targeting Muslim countries.

According to cybersecurity company Kaspersky, which actively tracks and researches various malicious actors, including hacker groups, ROOTK1T appears to be a classical politically-driven hacktivist group.

Guest expert Malaysia Cyber Consumer Association (MCCA) deputy president Azrul Zafri Azmi joined the discussion together with Life & Times associate editor Izwan Ismail to highlight more on cybersecurity solutions.

The company's director of the Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT) for Asia Pacific (APAC), Vitaly Kamluk was also featured to share insights on how to detect, investigate, and respond to cyber incidents effectively.

Separately, the rice industry in Malaysia is facing multifaceted challenges, from production to pricing and market dynamics.
