Internet users trying to access Google’s search engine on Monday morning quickly discovered the company’s local domain was compromised.

A hacker, who identified himself as Bangladeshi, defaced the company’s Google.co.ke domain, replacing the page with a black background with the word ‘hacked’ engraved on it.

The error was quickly fixed. Google Kenya, however, denied claims it had been hacked into. The company explained that it was the domain name server (DNS) which hosts google.co.ke that had been compromised. Adapted from nation.co.ke
