Google Pakistan defaced by Turkish hacker group

Karachi: Pakistani users on Saturday face unexpected hurdle to make access and use Google.com.pk as it has been reported by several sources that the search engine has been hacked by a group of Turkish hackers.    

According to sources, the Turkish hackers seeped into the websites of Google Pakistan and Microsoft Pakistan, defacing it on Saturday morning.

The hackers removed the Google logo and search bar, changing it with an image of two penguins walking on a bridge adding a message in Turkish. An English translation of which reads, “Eboz of a friend always there for me. My homies have not shot by me with every breath.”

The hackers also added the words, “Pakistan Downed,” which most likely means the Pakistan home page has been taken down.

But Google is still quite about the issue why its Pakistan edition has been hacked, by whom and from where.
