The Malaysian Esports Federation’s Official Facebook Page Has Been Hacked
It appears that the official Facebook page of the Malaysian Esports Federation (MESF) has been compromised. A post has been shared on the page requesting $700 in exchange for selling the page. The legitimacy of this post is currently under question, and it is unclear if the MESF page has been hacked or if this is a case of unauthorized access. The page is still currently accessible, and the organization has not released an official statement regarding the issue. The incident has raised concerns about the security of the MESF's online accounts, and it remains to be seen what actions the federation will take in response to this incident. The MESF is the governing body for all electronic sports in Malaysia and works to organize various major events for Esports in the country, including Dota 2, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB), Tekken 7, Player Unknowns Battleground Mobile (PUBGM), Valorant and others.
Hackers share post on Facebook to sell the page for 700$
The MESF Facebook page serves as a crucial platform for the federation to communicate with its followers, promote esports events, and showcase the achievements of Malaysian esports athletes. If the page is indeed hacked, it could harm the reputation of the federation and damage the trust between the MESF and its fans.
The post regarding selling the page for 700$ was made several hours ago, and there have been no other posts since that one. The organization has not made any announcement on any of its social media channels since the suspicious post on Facebook was released.
The post that was made after the apparent hacking was seen to mention a user named ‘Dariusmk’, stating that anyone who wants to buy the official MESF Facebook page should contact the user on Telegram. The identity of the individual is not known and it does not seem to be a known individual within the community.
Without any official statements from the organization, it is unsure of how the situation will be dealt with and whether a thorough investigation will be launched to find out the source of the apparent hacking.
