The Web site of WhatsApp, a widely used messaging app, appeared to have been defaced Tuesday.
The site showed a pro-Palestinian message at 2:40 a.m. PT Tuesday and was given the title "You Got Pwned." A group called KDMS Team claimed credit for the attack.

According to the Whois database, which can be used to see what numeric Internet Protocol (IP) address is assigned to a given Internet domain, the whatsapp IP address record was changed on Tuesday. Such a change, made through the Internet's Domain Name Service (DNS) system, is one way that users who typed in the whatsapp.com name would be redirected to a different Web site.
It wasn't immediately clear if there were any problems with WhatsApp's customer data or services. CNET contacted the company for comment and will update this story with its reply.
WhatsApp is used to send billions of messages a day using mobile apps.
