On Saturday, Google's Bangladesh search site was hacked, visitors to the site saw a defaced landing page rather than the usual search site. Local Bangladesh media, including online newspaper bdnews24 reported,

"The site is inaccessible from some ISPs, as their DNS settings have been hacked.

Attempts to access the site by users are rebounded with message reading, "Google Bangladesh OwN3D by TiGER-M@TE."

"A couple of other ISPs have also got similar complaints from their clients," he said."

Google Bangladesh site hacked

Google responds that Google Bangladesh has not been hacked. Apparently this is actually a Bangladeshi DNS registry issue that caused users going to Google.co.bd and other web addresses to be redirected to to another site. The issue is now resolved but may not clear for awhile because of cache issues.
