NIC Asia Capital’s website (URL) is under maintenance as we are preparing this story.

There’s a possibility that the site was defaced by a Japanese hacker (or group of hackers) as evident by the search result on Google.

As you can see, some unusual texts appear in the meta tags (title and description) for the site’s search result.

When clicked on Translate this page, it tries to translate the site from Japanese to English.

The first result redirects to NIC Asia Capital’s website but the site is under maintenance.

When we tried to access the link from the snippet, it prompted a 404 error.
