Feb 14, 2013
Famous Bangladeshi hacker TiGER-M@TE  known for his big defacements strikes again! This time he teams up with another hacker ' h311 c0d3 ' for another big defacement campaign.  According to mirror records on Zone-H, These hackers managed to deface Malawi Google, Yahoo, MSN, Windows and many more top domains using DNS poisoning attack. During talk with ' The Hacker News ', hackers disclose that they collectively hacked into Malawi (.mw) Domain Registrar website and also target Master and Slave DNS servers. The attackers changed the authoritative DNS records for the affected domains, to point the domain names to their own web server with a deface page hosted on it. All this could have been much worse if the attacker had other goals in his mind rather than defacing famous websites. Imagine how many accounts could have been compromised, if these websites were redirected to a phishing page, instead of a defacement page. At the time of reporting, Domain Re

This is a 22% decrease in ransomware attacks compared to Q4 2023. Figure 1: Victims per quarter There could be several reasons for this significant drop.  Reason 1: The Law Enforcement Intervention Firstly, law enforcement has upped the ante in 2024 with actions against both LockBit and ALPHV. The LockBit Arrests In February, an international operation named "Operation Cronos" culminated in the arrest of at least three associates of the infamous LockBit ransomware syndicate in Poland and Ukraine.  Law enforcement from multiple countries collaborated to take down LockBit's infrastructure. This included seizing their dark web domains and gaining access to their backend sys

Google Bangladesh website (Google.com.bd) Hacked by TiGER-M@TE
Jan 09, 2011
Google Bangladesh website ( Google.com.bd ) Hacked by TiGER-M@TE We just got an anonymous tip that Google's been 'hacked' – sure enough, visitors of the company's Bangladesh search site (Google.com.bd) see a defaced landing page rather than the usual search site. As far as I can tell, www.google.com.bd functions properly, so whether this really constitutes a 'hack' is up for debate. According to Zone-h , Bangladeshi hacker TiGER-M@TE has been quite active with defacements lately, and has targeted some high-profile sites in the past, including the local website for American Express and Airtel (video).
