Twitter account of Malindo Air hacked

Malindo Air, an airline based in Malaysia, has lost control of their tweets after hackers hijacked their twitter account.

Hacker managed to tweet a false message saying "Dear all, in view of the recent events, Malindo Air is giving away 100,000 free seats from today till end of the week."

When a Malaysian politician Tony Pua retweeted and asking whether "Hacked or real?".  The hackers responded with "damn real, yb".

However, Malindo Air representative told local news report that they are not giving 100,000 free seats and apologized for the inconvenience.

"Dear All, our twitter account has been hacked. Please do not entertain the hacker. We will get to the bottom of this problem. Thank you."

It appears they have not yet recovered the account, the tweet posted by the hacker still appears even after 20 hours.
