The Malaysia rest stop drop was acquired from a sequence of Black OTP1 messages and a message desk call February 19th 2012. It's a bright red box in the northbound Taiping rest stop of the North-South Highway. People on the Malaysian reddit say that it's a firehose box and would be locked. On March 24 Redditor Brethren visited and found the package taped to the bottom of the box.


Brethren visited the site and found the component we lost in the grass at the Swan Point Cemetery drop. Note reference to "grassroots" in the keepalive call:

sukasa: requesting information, do we have all of the components 
message desk: in response to question 10, submit component imagery for 9, to 9 for analysis, are concerned transport of component to Tucson did not reach intended recipient due to transcoding error, may have gone to subject of interest instead, are assessing situation 
sukasa: and what is complete component list? 
message desk: in response to question 12, due to operational security, please provide imagery of components received to agent 9, we will drop the remainder, have had problem with grass roots counter operation and percentage was lost
