and 284 Other .PK Domains Hacked

اسے اردو میں پڑھیے

Start page for majority of Pakistanis – when they first visited it this morning – was found hacked and defaced. Yes, Google.Com.PK along with 284 other .PK domains were hacked today (and are still defaced).

According to Irfan Ahmed, an expert on Pakistani websites and web-servers, this defacement is due to change in DNS entries for 284 .PK domains that are managed by MarkMoniter.

Defaced domains include Microsoft.PK, apple.PK, paypal.PK, ebay.PK, blogspot.PK, chrome.PK, Cisco.PK and others.

Apparently no one has claimed the responsibility for the incident, but a message appearing on defaced pages, including on is displaying a message in Turkish language, hinting that the hacker could be Turkish in origin.

Hacker hasn’t left any message for anyone, unlike the norm that hackers follow to convey their message through such defacements.

However, there is a phrase saying “Downed Pakistan”, a sign of victory for hackers when the deface a website.

Check below the screenshot of hacked – which is still in-tact for few users.

  • working fine at the moment

  • Seems Turkish hacker Mr. eboz got access to the PKNIC account for changing Nameservers ~

    – It’s not their fault (Google) this breach happened from our side (PKNIC) – Google is still down from my side since last 3 hours. It’s 10:02 AM – I’m using PTCL Broadband.


    whole .PK registry is poisoned

    • you are right!

    • Guest

      A lot of experts sitting here and i want to share some thing too.

      Its not google that has been hacked. Possibly our TLD (top Level Domain) i.e pknic has been compromised and the name server entries were changed . The websites are re-routed not hacked. This was the same thing happened to supreme court website couple of moths back so it seems that there is some security hole that is not covered by pknic.We should blame pknic not google, but at the end of the day security is not 100% possible.

  • Umar

    Cannot be the work of any Turkish. It is some Indian or Israeli who is using Turkish Language just to create confusion.

    • Salman Abbas

      ROFL konse molvi ko sunke aye ho. grow up.

      • Khawaja

        I agree with Umar Looks like a work of a non-Turkish. I’ve been to Turkey personally, Turkish people treat us Pakistanis in the best possible way in today’s era. Turkey is one country that stands by us and helps us. Turkish language has been used to create confusion, confusion among the Turkish and Paki people :).

        One of the most simple ways.

        • Salman Abbas

          I hereby nominate you for the “Worst Conspiracy Theory of 2012” award.

        • hackers are few in millions dude…and are jerks [most of the time]. and turkey being a hospitable nation doesn’t make few jerks the angels.

      • and why is that you’re so sure of the man behind this being a turkish…it’s just a sentence written in turkey. that doesn’t NECESSARILY make him turkish. grow up you too

      totally agree with you Israelis did this because a few days earlier Pakistani did the same to Israeli sites…this is the counter attack…

      • yes…you’re making some sense here

      • Asad

        Agreed, this is a counter attack………

    • I agree with you. There’s no such dispute between Pakistan and Turkey. Why should Turkish people do this.

      As far as it is about profile nd message in Turkish Language. It can be fake.

  • retergt

    Haha Pakistani Fuckers!!

  • All The Websites Hacked Are Only Multinational Websites. Like , , , , ,

  • It is a registry level hack! they have gotten into Pknic and managed to change dns of sites like at this point it seems like dns is pointed to a free dns host, which as of now is suspended. Hacker could have poisoned all .pk domains, would of been a biggest hack of century!

  • Jitni Website Bhe Hacked Hoi Hain Sab Ki Sab Multinational Companies Ki Thi. Or Tmam Ka NS , Per Set kiya gaya he.
    i Think PKNIC K Database Se Koi Gar Bar hoi he. Wo Tmam .pk Domain Hacked Hoaay Hain Jin Ka CNAME Redirected Tha.

  • Aamir bhai ap kese bach gaye .PK to apka bhi he shukar manayen!!

  • so technically pknic was hacked :P

  • Ghayoor Shaikh

    It is really creating a mayhem in the image of paki people about the Hackers

  • Shameel Faraz

    There was a ??? how did no one knew abt it ? and did provides payment services for pakistan ??

  • turkish prime minister visited Ghaza as solidarity of Muslims. Pakistani hackers hacked their websites. Jews are very sensitive to their enemies. Thats why they pictured such event to disheart people of Pakistan and to counter attack on us. in other words aik teer sa do shikaar.

  • luqman

    so where are the smart hacker …..
    they should have foreseen the attack and must have defended it ….
    if they can not defend us then should not enter the game ….

  • Hun Aram eh .Hor lo Pangye……. !

  • Now the site is back they just change the main servers that why it takes time to re-update the servers name back. believe me this is noting big they cant hack internet giant google original servers:))

  • chand

    kankalarim hep yanimda arkadas icinde yanimda olmayan mi var cekimlik her nefeste .

  • Syed Shoaib Raza

    All the websites can be open easily. It is a fake news.

  • Full report ..Admin should publish this report also in new post

  • @Admin: Where is my last comment for this story?

  • Karim

    Pakistani’s are earning enough with non PK domains then why should we worry about these domains :P

  • Here is my observation:

    Most of them are well known cTlds for example,,,,,, etc.

    Interesting part is they all have 2 things in common:

    1. They are all registered through PKNIC
    2. They are all “not in use” domains and registered for Brand and identity protection only (in simple words, so that no one else can have it).

    Hackers had access to PKNIC as they modified NS entries for each domain and change to and respectively.

    I have a feeling that these domains were ignored or forgotten by their owners. Every domain is set to expire in less than 4 months if you closely observe. These domains domains were not actively used and there was no pages to serve on these domains. They were all registered by a single company : MarkMonitor. who is responsible to manage brand protection, etc. for all of the above companies.

    any feedback?

  • JM

    PKNIC has a big problem of ns name grouping, first of all user need to create a ns name record group and then allocate it to a domain or set of domains

    if some one need to change in ns then he need to create a new ns group not directly. if you just locate the domain and click the ns to change it will change the whole group not a single domain.

    So that could be reason for mark monitor
