Hacker TiGER-M@TE Hits Google Kenya, Bing Kenya, LinkedIn Kenya
The Kenyan Web sites for Google, Dell, Skype, MSN, Bing, LinkedIn, HP, Microsoft, YouTube and others were defaced.
Bangladeshi hacker TiGER-M@TE recently defaced several leading Web sites in Kenya, including google.co.ke, dell.co.ke, skype.co.ke, msn.co.ke, bing.co.ke, linkedin.co.ke, hp.co.ke, microsoft.co.ke, youtube.co.ke and others (h/t Softpedia).
Each site was defaced with the same image, stating, "HackeD By TiGER-M@TE #Bangladeshi HackeR. Greetz : kinG oF coNTroL ; Barbaros-DZ ; F0RTYS3V3N ; aBu.HaliL501 ; W7sH.SyRiA ; h311 c0d3 ; m1l05 ; j0 ; l0calh0st ; Ne0-h4ck3r."
As Softpedia's Eduard Kovacs notes, it's doubtful that TiGER-M@TE breached each of the sites individually -- it's more likely that the .ke domain registrar's DNS servers were compromised and leveraged to redirect users to the defacement pages.
