The Malaysian Insider blocked by government

The Malaysian government has blocked popular news portal The Malaysian Insider (shutdown on 15 March, 2016) under the Communications and Multimedia Act, but the publication claims it was blacked out for "national security reasons".

Impact

All Malaysians using DNS provided by ISPs, especially mobile data will be redirected to MCMC censorship block and will not be able to access the website.

Solution

Affected users should consider the following workaround:
1. Using alternative DNS (Ref: How to workaround Internet Censorship via DNS blocking)
2. Using safe proxy (Ref: Tor Project)
