It seems as if hackers were able to hack Google domain after breaching the systems of country’s domain registrar.
1337 who is member of Madleets took the opportunity to deface google.co.bi, google.com.bi, google.bi.

H4x0r Hussy defaced the images.google.bi while Invectus left the translate.google.bi domain defaced.

Links of all hacked domains along with their mirrors are given below:

 

  • www.google.co.bi
  • http://zone-h.org/mirror/id/20826444
  • www.google.com.bi
  • http://zone-h.org/mirror/id/20826454
  • www.google.bi
  • http://zone-h.org/mirror/id/20826422
  • www.translate.google.bi
  • http://zone-h.org/mirror/id/20827129
  • www.images.google.bi
  • http://zone-h.org/mirror/id/20827157

This is not the first time when Google has its domain hacked. In past Google Palestine, Google Morocco and Google Saint Helena were also hacked by breaching domain registrar of respective countries.

Burundi, officially the Republic of Burundi, is a landlocked country in the Great Lakes region of Eastern Africa.

At the time of publishing this article, all hacked Google domains were taken offline and not working.
