KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia has beefed up security ahead of a threatened hacking attack of its official government website by internet vigilante group Anonymous for government acts of censorship and will track down the activists, the police chief said on Wednesday.

In an attack codenamed "Operation Malaysia", Anonymous said it would target the Malaysian government's online portal malaysia.gov.my from 0730 GMT to teach the country a lesson for censoring whistle-blower site Wikileaks.

"We have received word of this threat. There are many agencies involved in this and we will get to the bottom of this," Malaysian police chief Ismail Omar told Reuters.

"Investigation needs to be done and we need to protect our systems at the same time."
