Country-code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) for the homepage of Malaysian version of Google (google.com.my and google.my) are hacked by Pakistani hackers group. MadLeets named hackers group has confirmed that they are responsible for this defacement activity. Confirmation was done through a message that was being shown on Google’s homepage for Malaysia.
It seems that DNS of hackers successfully poisoned the Google domains and were able to redirect them to one of their own web server. Both domains remained defaced for quite a long time.
Normally even after the DNS is updated, it takes around 24 hours of time before the defacement comes to an end. Original DNS needs to be propagated all across the web before the webpages can be properly viewed by the general public.
It will be a good reminder to all of you that a Turkish hacker also employed the same technique and hacked not only Google Pakistan but 300 other Pakistani domains as well.
Here is the message left on defaced page:
