Well Well Well, Mercantile’s security system is not so secured. The Official web page of Mercantile Domain Registration Service is hacked by the Pakistani hackers.The company was providing free registration of .np ccTLD domain in Nepal. Additionally, it also provided the service like the free cost of booking, renewal, DNS pointing, DNS transfer, etc.
A group of hackers called PakCyber Thunders hacked the website yesterday (12 July 2017) evening. A message was posted on the page, however now the message has been removed, but, the website is still not accessible.
The hacked page read: Free Kashmir | Fuck India” with” Pakistan Zindabad, So, we assume the hackers are from Pakistan but we don’t know motive behind the hack.
Whether a Nepali or a Pakistani, how the hell did they got into the Mercantile’s Website? Was Mercantile’s security system so loose or the hackers are too smart. Whatever the case is, but this is a serious issue that the Mercantile need to fix soon.
