Google Kenya site defaced by Tiger M@te


Google Kenya Hacked

The morning for many Kenyan Googlers were devoid of the familiar white screen and the Google doodle.Instead, they were greeted with the banner of Bangladeshi hacker on the Google Kenya website. The hacker named TigerM@te hacked and defaced the website , which is similar to the way it defaced the google Bangladesh website.

The Bangladeshi site was compromised by DNS spoofing,a technique where the user is redirected to the other website by making changes to the DNS    i.e Domain Name System. The same technique must have been used by the hacker to deface the Kenyan website. Though, no official statement was released by google about the hack.
