NEW DELHI: The Google’s homepage for Malaysia was allegedly hacked by Pakistani hackers earlier this week.
The page became inaccessible after falling victim to the hacker’s attack by “Team MadLEETS”. At the bottom of the page the slogan of “Pakistan Zindabad” appeared, which is the nationalist slogan of Pakistan meaning long live Pakistan.
“There’s not much reason behind it, only to prove that security is just an illusion. It does not exist,” said team leader Leet in a statement to a website. “We have no political intentions whatsoever.”
This is not the first time that Google’s Malaysian home page had been hacked; the page was also breached in July. The Leet has been involved in numerous such incidents of DNS poisoning.
But in a statement, Google said: “For a short period, some users visiting google.com.my were redirected to a different website; Google services for the google.com.my domain were not hacked. We have been in contact with the organisation responsible for managing this domain name and the issue should be resolved.”
