At first glance this might seem just  an annoyance but its actually been rather damaging.

Google, Apple, eBay and Yahoo were among almost 300 sites affected by a hack attack in Pakistan.
The hack targeted sites that had Pakistani domain names, such as .com.pk, .pk and org.pk.
Hackers exploited an apparent vulnerability in domain name systems, redirecting visitors of popular sites to a different site.

The page featured a picture of two penguins walking across a bridge with the slogan "Pakistan Downed".
The companies themselves were not breached, but it meant key services, such as Google's Gmail, were temporarily down.
