KDMS hackers left a deface page along with a message on two Alexa Internet, Inc domains with a Palestinian flag and text against Israel. The deface message was expressed in following words: 

Hello World We Are Here To Deliver Tow Messages First one: we want to tell you that there is a land called Palestine on the earth this land has been stolen by Zionist do you know it ? Palestinian people has the right to live in peace Deserve to liberate their land and release all prisoners from israeli jails we want peace long live Palestine.

KDMS team is the same team who earlier today had defaced the official Whatsapp, Avira and AVG Anti-Virus  websites in support of Palestine.

Alexa Internet, Inc. is a California-based subsidiary company of Amazon.com which provides commercial web traffic data. 

At the time of publishing this article, both domains were restored and working online.
