Google, MSN Domains for Pitcairn Islands Hacked By Bangladeshi Hackers

On July 25, 2015, we reported how a group of Morrocan hackers hacked and defaced the official domains of Google, Microsoft and Kaspersky Labs all three designated for Morocco.

Now, a group of Bangladeshi hackers have done the same by defacing Google and MSN domains designated for the Pitcairn Islands.

Hackers left a deface page along with a message on the hacked domains, but the reason for targeting these domains was not mentioned anywhere.

“Google Pitcairn Island hacked by Tiger M@te & Surg4bij4k. Bangladesh to Indonesia, we own it all.”

A full preview of the deface page left by hackers on Google Pitcairn Islands is available below:

Hackers do like to play with security flaws that can interrupt service of any famous platform. This one is similar to a DNS hijacking case in February that disrupted access to Google’s Vietnam homepage.

Links of targeted domains along with their zone-h mirrors as a proof of hack are available below:

In past, Tiger M@te was behind the hacking of Google, Google Images, YouTube, Yahoo Malaysia and Google Kenya.

About Pitcairn Island:

The Pitcairn Islands, officially named the Pitcairn Group of Islands, are a group of four volcanic islands in the southern Pacific Ocean that form the last British Overseas Territory in the Pacific.

At the time of publishing this article, both domains were still hacked with the deface page uploaded by hackers.
