DHAKA: International hacking organisation Anonymous crashed websites belonging to the Turkish police and intelligence July 19 in a show of support for the socialist RedHack group.
The website www.egm.gov.tr, which belongs to the Turkish Police Directorate was rendered inaccessible, while the website of Turkey`s National Intelligence Agency (MİT), www.mit.gov.tr, could be accessed but subpages could not load.
RedHack announced on its Twitter account that Anonymous had taken down the websites to support the socialist group, which was identified as a terrorist organisation by authorities after it hacked into the Turkish Foreign Ministry servers, revealing the identities of foreign diplomatic personnel working in Turkey.
Anonymous started the hashtag #OpSupportRedHack on Twitter, announcing it was targeting Turkish government websites in a show of ‘solidarity’ with RedHack, reports daily Hurriyet.
