According to Malaysian daily The Star, the hackers who dubbed themselves the ExtremeCrew broke into 27 websites following an oversight in the official souvenir booklet of the games which printed an upside-down image of the Indonesian flag.
Following the flag blunder, which was first raised by Indonesian Youth and Sports Minister Imam Nahrawi on Saturday, Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin had publicly apologised for the incident.
Indonesian President Joko Widodo told reporters in Jakarta the incident concerned "national pride" and called for an apology.
Indonesia's flag has a red stripe above a white stripe, but it was inverted, making it look instead like the flag of Poland.
Malaysia's foreign ministry and the Games organisers apologised profusely for the gaffe but it was not enough to quell a wave of complaints online, with #ShameOnYouMalaysia becoming Indonesia's top trending topic on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Malaysian coach Md Fikri Md Noor said his charges would take a positive approach when facing Thailand, knowing that the Thais are a powerhouse in the sport.
Khairy, who is also MASOC chairman, said he had stopped the distribution of the erroneous special souvenir book and a new edition with the appropriate correction would be issued.
On this mistake made by Malaysia, Erick Thohir further added that friendship is the greatest legacy in, but a mistake in presenting a national identity is not justified.
Youth and Sports Minister Imam Nahrawi said the error was "very painful".
Dr Amirudin Abdul Wahab, chief executive of CyberSecurity Malaysia, said authorities were looking into the attacks.
On Twitter, Indonesians said their flag represents the sacrifices of independence heroes and accused Malaysia of either being stupid or deliberately misprinting it. They will also stop the circulation of the previously printed guidebook and will revise a new edition to be circulated in the near future.
