Whatsapp, Avira and AVG Websites Hacked and Defaced by Anonymous Palestine

The official website of world’s most famous mobile messaging app Whatsapp, anti-virus giant Avira and AVG had their websites defaced by newly emerging group of hackers from Palestine -KDMS, connected with hacktivists Anonymous group.

The hackers left a deface page along with a message on all hacked websites, showing Anonymous logo and a Palestinian flag. The deface page was expressed in following words:

We want to tell you that there is a land called Palestine on earth, this land has been stolen by Zionist. Do you know it? Palestinian people has the right to live in peace. Deserve to liberate their land release all prisoners from israeli jails. And, there is no full security, We can catch you!

It is unclear if the hacker got access to any sensitive data from Whatsapp’s database or from Avira and AVG anti-virus server. However, it seems as if the hacker used DNS hijacking technique to penetrate the servers and deface them with his own page.
