How google malaysia was hacked



The popular Google Malaysia was hacked today and visitors of the site were taken to a defaced landing page made by the hackers. In seems to be  a case of DNS hijacking where attackers redirected the users to their own page. Visitors to the Malaysian site see a message telling them that “Google Malaysia Hacked by Tiger-Mate #Bangladeshi Hacker”.

According to google no data has been compromised and all their services are up and still running. Since it is a dns hijacking issue here generally an attacker compromises the DNS registrar and change the server address which takes the users to a different website or page, hence all data are safe.

The problem appears to have arisen from the organisation that manages the technology that allows URLs to point towards websites, according to a Google statement given to Reuters. The search giant is working with that organisation, MYNIC, to resolve the problem.

MYNIC is run by the country’s ministry of communications and multimedia. It runs all websites that end with the .my suffix, including google.com.my.

DNS attacks are comon in big websites like google because it is relatively easy to hack into the DNS provider then to hack into the server of these organizations. In the past years too we have seen many cases of DNS attacks. On 24th November 2012 Google Pakistan was hacked by this technique and on 26th august 2013 Google Palestine was hacked by DNS hijacking technique.

The defaced page can be viewed on  Zone-H, an archive of defaced websites, According to Zone-H TiGER-M@TE also defaced yahoo.com.my, translate.google.com.my and youtube.my today, however this was not independently confirmed.

How Google Palestine was hacked ? 

According to me google palestine is hacked in the same was how google pakistan was hacked last year. It looks like a DNS attack .So may be the registrar that was responsible for Google's DNS records may have been compromised and the records were changed, so when users went to google.ps they were redirected to different website which was setup by  hacker to make it look that google.ps has been actually compromised.

After doing a whois lookup i came to know that the registrar that is responsible for the domain is  MarkMonitor Inc.There is a chance that the hackers may have gained access to MarkMonitor inc and then would have changed the DNS servers.

I will update this page as soon as i have more updates regarding this attack.
