Google Pakistan and Other Websites Hacked by Turkish Hacker Group Eboz



Saturday morning, when I tried to accessed google.com.pk, I was surprised to see the defacement page of turkish hackers, Later on I came to know that other websites such as Microsoft.com.pk were also despoiled Saturday morning. So if you’re Google Pakistan traffic was down a bit on Saturday because of this reason.

The Google Pakistan Google.Com.Pk search engine has allegedly been hacked by an international hacker group EBOZ, blocking access for consumers of various internet providers companies to the search engine, Geo News reported on Saturday.

 On checking the name servers with nslookup, the DNS servers were pointing towards a different website, it was clear that the hacker compromised the DNS server and changed the DNS servers to their personal, where they had their defacement page. The above image appeared on major .pk domains, when users were trying to access them.

For a while later the page started pointing towards google.com instead of google.com.pk, However the name servers of all .pk domains are still pointing towards freehostia.

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) said that the search engine had been rebuild and bring back hours after the hackers attack. Though,  Google. Com international search engine has been working as usual.

This was apparently a DNS hack, where the hackers took control of the domain name records or server. They also hacked Microsoft and other well known companies.
