'RedHack' brings down conservative newspaper
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily News
The message 'We are not white-washing, we are hacking' (AK'lamıyor Hacklıyoruz) was written on the page with a mock signature that read 'From prison' (Cezaevinden) at the bottom.
Turkish cyber activist group RedHack today took over website of the conservative newspaper Milli Gazete.
Milli Gazete is a religious-based publication with close ties to conservative groups in Turkish society.
The socialist RedHack recently hacked the Turkish Interior Ministry website as well, downloading all the documents from the ministry's file system. They have also staged cyber attacks against several police force servers in the past, including Ankara police's servers in February.
It was revealed through this incident that the Turkish police were using the number sequence "123456" to save secret documents.
The police and judiciary have been targeting the group ever since the February attack but have been unable to identify the hackers.
