Mega.PK, one of the oldest and premium online stores that specializes in laptops, smartphones, Cameras and accessories, was hacked by Indian hackers a few days ago and reportedly they have lost all the data and are unable to get back online.
Initially we thought that it was a routine hacking activity and that Mega.PK will be back online soon, however, they have been offline for over a week now and we are hearing that all their data was deleted, leaving the company empty handed with no option but to remain offline for an extended duration.
Our sources tell that Indian hackers are behind the incident.
Mega.PK, an online company from old days, was best known for its prices for laptops. They also used to deal in Smartphones, Cameras and other electronic devices.
For now we aren’t sure if they have any back-up data available with them or not. But with over one week of down-time, they are not only going to lose customers but search engine’s love in terms of ranking too.
Currently mega.pk is showing a blank page, and there’s no sign of their returning back.
This incident should act as a lesson, for Mega.PK and other online businesses, to stay vigilant in safe-guarding their online properties and more importantly, keeping a secure back-up of whatever you do online.
Mega.PK approached us to tell that they were maintaining back-ups with GoDaddy, however, when needed GoDaddy is taking forever to restore the back-up data.
Mega said that its been over a week now that GoDaddy has failed to restore the back-ups and they have no option but to restore a local back-up which is few weeks old. It said that they are considering to file lawsuit against GoDaddy for charging them for a service and not delivering it when required, causing them unrecoverable losses in terms of business and search engine rankings.
