Malaysia ISP Blocks 306 Online Gambling Websites

Malaysia ISP Blocks 306 Online Gambling Websites The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) announced the ISP blocking of 306 online gambling websites thus far in 2015.

The sites were blocked as a direct result of cases filed by police, who have been cracking down on online gambling.

MCMC Digital and Media Literacy Division senior director Eneng Faridah Iskandar said that police found "criminal elements" on the websites that were subsequently blocked.

In 2014, the Commission blocked 235 sites under the Common Gaming House Act 1953 (Act 289).

The Commission works alongside police by granting them access to the technical services of its digital forensics laboratory in Cyberjaya during investigations.
  • I am trying to wrap my head around this, 306 online gambling websites that have been blocked in Malaysia. You know what I was thinking, being from the US, if the US government really wanted to keep out online gambling, they could do the same. Maybe the US isn't as serious about stopping online gambling as it says. They are definitely not as serious as Malaysia.
