How was Malaysia Airlines 'hacked'?

Hackers claiming to be from the Lizard Squad - Official Cyber Caliphate group have attacked the official website of Malaysia Airlines.

The attackers were able to redirect people wishing to visit the airline's site to an entirely different page - one bearing the hacking group's signature logo.

With the help of some decidedly low-tech props, BBC technology reporter Dave Lee explains how the attack happened.
