Tourism Malaysia is back online.
Nice work to the web team for getting the site up and running in 24 hours.
The incident might have happened in the proverbial blink of an eye, but it got me thinking; how do hackers choose the websites that they deface?
Do they look for the ones that are the easiest to break into? Do they choose websites based on their political views?
Or do they just hit websites that suck?
If that’s the case, does Tourism Malaysia suck?
Well, I think it does kinda suck, for the following reasons:
1. I don’t know where to start; there is too much information for me to take look at, all in one go.
3. There are two white people strolling through the jungle in the masthead. Why?
4.When I click on links in the News Release section I go to a new page called Media Centre. Shouldn’t it have just said ‘Media Centre’ on the Home page?
5. The default fonts are tiny.
6. The content isn’t geared for selling; the website looks more like a Wiki on Malaysia than a portal for tourists.
On the bright side, you can download a bunch of Powerpoint presentations on Malaysia.
How about some links to great local content?
And what’s the difference between this site and the Consumer Travel Website?
Looking for tourist sites that are actually made for tourists?
But hey, 2008 is the year to visit Terengganu.
And Terengganu, ladies and gentlemen, is simply beautiful.
