12:34 PMtheregister.co.uk hacked by T.G
Here is one of the most shocking news of today, One of the biggest News
website Theregister.co.uk has been hacked few minutes before from Now,
The website was not hacked by any traditional web application attacks
like SQL Injection, Remote File Inclusion or local file inclusion,
However DNS Hijacking or DNS redirection attack was used. The website
was hacked by Turkguvenligi who is also known as TG hacker and is also
responsible for the major website defacements in the pasts including
Microsoft, Dell and other big websites.|
If you would check the hackers zone-h record , You will find that this hacker only goes after major websites, It's quite sad to see that even major websites don't pay proper attention to their website security.
From the above screenshot, you can clearly see that the hacker has redirected the name servers of register.co.uk to his own name server.
