Google Bangladesh site hacked

Hackers have broken into the Bangladesh site of leading search engine Google, internet service experts said Saturday evening. The site is inaccessible from some ISPs, as their DNS settings have been hacked. Visitors to the site are seeing a defaced landing page rather than the usual search site. Users can at times view the homepage due to the cache on their browser, but the page entertains no search. Attempts to access the site by users are rebounded with message reading, “Google Bangladesh OwN3D by TiGER-M@TE.” “The site has definitely been hacked,” said Pradip Dey, chief technical officer of ADN, a leading ISP. “A couple of other ISPs have also got similar complaints from their clients,” he said. Earlier, privately managed International Internet Gateway operator, Mango Teleservices, said they can enter “I can access it from here. But, many are calling us about this problem.”
