KUALA LUMPUR: A 22-year-old youth who wanted to make the best of his holiday, went to a cybercafe and hacked into the Road Transport Department (JPJ) website.

Within minutes, the culprit who identified himself as Sennx, posted a message on the site stating cheekily that, "Officers responsible for the website are too lazy to do their job.''

Policemen from Bukit Aman's high-tech crime unit have identified the youth and are in the process of arresting him.

It is learnt that the suspect was holidaying in Kedah at the end of February when he went to a cybercafe to install a "trojan horse" programme onto the website.

Trojan horse refers to a virus inside e-mail attachments.

Early last month, he activated the programme and defaced the website.

Federal Commercial Crime deputy director Senior Asst Comm II Kamaruddin Alias confirmed the case, adding that police were treating the case seriously as they have the facilities and manpower to track down such culprits.

SAC II Kamaruddin said police were looking for Razwan Mokhtar, whose last known address is No: 55, Jalan 18/48 Taman Datuk Senu, 51000 Kuala Lumpur, to assist in investigations.

Those with information on his whereabouts can contact Chief Insp Mahfuz Abu Majid at 03-2262-7018 or the nearest police station.
