The Google Malaysia domains google.com.my and google.my have been defaced by hackers of the Pakistani Madleets group. This appears to be still another case of DNS hijacking.Over the past period, a lot of hacker groups have leveraged DNS poisoning to make it see like high-profile websites have been defaced. Team Madleets is a collective that has often used this technique.
The hackers have clarified on Facebook that the attack is not the result of any friendly of hate.
We don’t hate anyone, We love all humanity, there is no obvious reason for stamping the tlds. Least the reason is not any friendly of hate. Whatever the reason is we can’t explain except we love all of you, they stated.
Its worth noting that this isnt the first time when high-profile domains from Malaysia are defaced via DNS hijacking. A few months ago, Bangladeshi hacker [email protected] defaced Microsoft, Dell, Skype, Kaspersky, MSN and Bing domains.
At the time, Malaysian domain registrar MYNIC admitted being breached.
