Google-another victim of ugnazi.
UGNazi Hijacks Google.com Domain June 14, 2012 – In a most bold move, the hacker group UGNazi hijacked the Google.com domain on June 11th, redirecting administrative ownership to one of the member's Gmail account [email protected] Had UGNazi wanted to, they could have interrupted all services that Google.com supports including the company's flagship search engine offering. UGNazi members successfully socially engineered their way to administrative control of Google.com by manipulating Google's registrar MarkMonitor. Mark Monitor is a brand protection organization whose services include Domain Management. In a statement UGNazi said the following: "So, Today, we are releasing our statement on that no one on the Internet is safe from UGNazi. On June 11th we gained access to Google's MarkMonitor account. Our email address, [email protected], was successfully updated on Google's Mark-Monitor Account. The agent that helped us reset the account should get some what of credit, she helped us a lot on resetting Google's MarkMonitor account ." "P.S. Google, i suggest you move to a more secure registrar, but then again, we are Social Engineering Gods. So, this just goes to show, even Google can be Social Engineered." UGNazi also released a screenshot of an Account Change Request email from MarkMonitor that confirms UGNazi's claims. There has been no statement from either MarkMonitor or Google at this time.
