Weekly statistics of hacked domains in the .gr TLD

Another week passed and we have a large amount of hacked domains in the .gr domain.  Some of the hacked domains were again inside the governmental network, syzefxis.gr and other were defaced again, and again like bmw.gr. The list contains about 213 domains making a rough estimation of 30 domains hacked per day.  It’s sad to see that companies and the government also, still don’t pay attention to their security.
The list:
