Google Palestine was hacked by Hacked by Hackteach Lover’s. So in order to check if google palestine really got hacked or its just another fake news I quickly visited the site and took me to the deface page.
The following message was written by the hackers on the deface page.

How Google Palestine was hacked ?
According to me google palestine is hacked in the same was how google pakistan was hacked last year. It looks like a DNS attack .So may be the registrar that was responsible for Google’s DNS records may have been compromised and the records were changed, so when users went to google.ps they were redirected to different website which was setup by hacker to make it look that google.ps has been actually compromised.
After doing a whois lookup i came to know that the registrar that is responsible for the domain is MarkMonitor Inc.There is a chance that the hackers may have gained access to MarkMonitor inc and then would have changed the DNS servers.
I will update this page as soon as i have more updates regarding this attack.
