On Monday morning, Google has been the victim of a cyber-attack. Defacement attack was launched by Bangladeshi hacker TiGER-M@TE, their Kenyan domain google.co.ke was defaced, instead the page splayed a black background stamped in red across it.
When a user visited the page the hacked screen spiraled in as some foreign music played in the background. Google is the third most used site in Kenya.
TiGER-M@TE has been quite active with defacements lately, and has targeted some high-profile sites in the past.
