The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) have been receiving numerous complains today of phones ringing and then the call drops. This is being experienced repeatedly by all parties.
Our initial investigation points to a technical cause of BOTS attack which is initiated anonymously from various sources with differing targets irrespective of the political parties.
We seek that everyone stop this act immediately and refrain from further use of such technical attacks as it could jeopardise the telecommunication network causing inconvenience to the public and a security risk. For those getting such calls from unknown numbers please be advised to not answer it.
MCMC and the service providers are continuing to investigate and in the event that the initiator/s is identified, MCMC will take stern action as provided by the law.
