Google Palestine hacked! NOT!

by Nikola Strahija on August 27th, 2013 News is spreading that google.ps was hacked by a Palestinian hacker group. The apparent google.ps hack actually consisted of posioning root DNS servers of the .ps TLD system. The DNS attack of course had political motives.
Google.ps DNS hack - defaced frontpage


While checking T-com Austria and Germany (major ISPs in those parts of Europe) we've found out that google.ps actually resolves to a web hosting provider in Morocco called Genious Communications, at the time of writing this article.

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: google.ps
Address: 41.77.118.2

The defaced page can be seen in the image above and the text reads:
"Google Owned.
No News Is a Good News.
Cold z3ro - Haml3t - Sas - [email protected]

uncle google we say hi from palestine to remember you that the country in google ..."

The IP resolves to one of Genious's shared web hosting servers where the account holding the domain is currently suspended.
