Exclusive : Google Palestine domain hacked and defaced

Google has local domains for almost every country in the world. Just now some hackers from Palestine hacked into Google's Palestine domain ( and defaced it

The message appearing on the defaced page says, "uncle google we say hi from Palestine to remember you that the country in google map not called Israel. Its called Palestine # Question : what would happen if we changed the country title of Isreal to Palestine in google maps !!! It would be a revolution .. So Listen to rihanna and be cool :P"

The most likely scenario is that Google itself hasn’t been breached. Instead, it appears as the hacker forwarded/ redirected the DNS to a new page.

The virtual names of the hackers behind the hack are ,"Cold z3ro - Haml3t - Sas - Dr@g" from Palestine.

Currently, the website is defaced while writing this update.
