The Malaysia Communications & Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has advised the public about internet links to MH370 which could risk computer users to malicious software (malware).

According to techblog Amanz, irresponsible individuals whom are riding on the popularity of the mystery of MH370 are suspected to be behind the links.

MCMC has therefore adviced the public to be extra careful when clicking on such links as those concerned can be tricked to give away access to their contact list online, apart from being re-directed to a link which is not related to MH370.

Aside from that, users of the internet are also advised to be extra careful when downloading applications which are related to MH370 as they could be harmful to their gadgets.
