Goggle Pakistan was hacked today. The page was transformed and emerged into a view that was quite different. The logo and the search bar were not appearing in the usual way. Google had been despoiled and taken under control by unknown hackers.
The despoiled web page emerged and appeared only on the Pakistan’s web page of Google. Initially people trying to access Google Pakistan were redirected to this portal but as for now, the search is being done on international page i.e www.google.com. The logo and search bar were hacked and the page displayed two penguins walking on a bridge. The page exhibited a message saying.
“Eboz of a friend always there for me My homies have not shot by me with every breath”
The message seem to written by some Turkish fellow after translating it through Google translator. There was another distinguishing line that draws the focus i.e. “Downed Pakistan”. It may have been written to spread the confirmation that this web page has been taken down.
The hackers stated another surprising line at the bottom of the page that is read after translation as
“Hello friends who are still alive, not dead!”. The message depicts the negative perception of Pakistan in today's world media. For the past few hours, the webservice has been take down and it's still unknown whether Google has been able to take control of the geographic targeting based search engine.
Other reports indicate that a total of 248 Pakistani websites have been hacked by the same Turkish hacker today which includes Microsoft's portal for Pakistani audience.
