Avira, AVG, Alexa and WhatsApp websites hacked by KDMS Team

The hackers group who defaced the popular hosting website LeaseWeb has once again attacked top websites and left them defaced.

It includes the popular messaging service WhatsApp, top free antivirus AVG, Avira, Alexa(Alexa.net) and Porn website RedTube.

The whois data of the affected domains apparently shows that they are registered with Network Solution.

It appears hackers compromised the domain provider and changed the DNS data rather than attacking individual websites.

At the time of writing, the avira website still shows the defaced page whereas other websites are offline including avg.com.

AVG has confirmed to E Hacking News that "it has had a select number of online properties defaced as a result of our domain name system (DNS) registrar being compromised".

"A number of other companies appear to have been faced with the similar issue. The situation is being further monitored and assessed closely. Customers are our priority, the DNS records have been corrected and AVG is working hard to resume normal service levels to its customer base and continue to protect our customers and their privacy."
