KUALA LUMPUR, — Maxis Bhd has launched an investigation to determine the validity of an alleged cybersecurity breach to its systems.

The telecommunication service provider said it “did not identify anything related to our own systems (but has) identified a suspected incident involving unauthorised access to one of our third-party vendor systems that reside outside of Maxis’ internal network environment.”

“We are working with them to investigate further and have also informed the relevant authorities,” it said in a statement.

Earlier today, it was reported in technology portals that the “R00TK1T ISC Team” published a claim that they have gained access to data belonging to Maxis Communications.
