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.
