'You caught the wrong people,' hackers claim, crash Turkish police website as proof
Hürriyet photoA group of hackers claimed that seven people arrested in an ongoing probe were not part of their movement and hacked a website to prove it.
Seven people were arrested last week on charges of hacking into an Ankara police database and stealing secret information from servers in February.
The Turkish activist group "RedHack," who took credit for the hacking, said today that the suspects were not from their organization and that they had nothing to do with the alleged crime.
To "prove" that their hackers were still out and active, RedHack members crashed a website belonging to the dormitory directorate of the Turkish police force. The directorate provides housing for police officers' children who are attending universities in Ankara.
RedHack announced the attack on the group's Twitter account and said it had acquired information on all of the students registered in the system.
