Google Qatar, Facebook Qatar, & More Hacked

It appears almost all hackers like to do DNS hijack attack instead of targeting the main target.  DNS hijack attacks allows them to deface high profile websites such as Google, Yahoo and more.

Now, the famous Syrian hacker group " Syrian electronic army " has also chosen "DNS hijack attack".  The group compromised the Qatar Domain registrar "registry.qa".

The hackers successfully managed to change the DNS records of high profile websites and defaced them.  The list of affected websites includes Government and Military websites, Google Qatar, Facebook Qatar, Vodafone Qatar and more websites.
