A Turkish hacker going with the handle of Misafir has hacked and defaced official Google Bolivia domain on 30th Oct 2013 along with 7 other Google domains such as Google Translator, Maps, SMS, News, ID, Labs and Google Images domain.
Misafir left a deface page along with a message on all defaced Google domains, expressed in following words:
by misafir! The names can be faked but the abilities never… See you soon
