Google Kenya Hacked And Turned Into A Music Website

Google.co.ke has in the past one hour apparently been hacked by a group of people claiming to be from Pakistan. The site is showing the defaced image above, while playing some ominous techno music in the background. This comes as quite a shock, considering the infrastructural power Google has all over the world, it is surprising that someone managed to get through to their site, even though it was only a minor defacing. According to techies we interviewed, it appears to be a DNS hijack across some Internet Service Providers, so while some computers may show the defaced website, others will still show Google.co.ke with the search bar we are accustomed to showing. More to come.
