Google Saint Helena Defaced by Pakistani Hackers

PAKbugs hacked the DNS servers and made the domain point to their own website

Pakistani hackers of the PAKbugs group have defaced, the official Google domain of Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha, a British overseas territory located in the Atlantic Ocean.

According to Cyber News, the hackers breached the Saint Helena DNS servers. By altering the records for, they’ve been able to make it so whenever someone visits, they’re redirected to PAKbugs’ own website, which hosts the defacement page.

It’s uncertain how many users visit, considering that Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha has a population of only 7,728, but the hackers have added another "hack" to their portfolio.

On Wednesday, PAKbugs "hacked" the website of Google Morocco.

Earlier this week, Iranian hackers managed to pull off a similar stunt. They defaced the Turkmenistan websites of YouTube, Gmail, Google and Intel.

At the time of writing, the Google Saint Helena website is still defaced.
