Anonymous attacks Turkish governmental websites

PanARMENIAN.Net - International hacktivist group Anonymous staged a cyber attack against ministries in Turkey late on April 27, Hurriyet Daily News reports.

The group made a DDOS attack to the websites belonging to ministries of justice, interior and foreign affairs and websites belonging to the police department.

A special team from Turkey's Telecommunications Directorate protected the websites from the attacks which lasted for two hours, during which none of the targeted websites was affected, the report says.

An Internet outage that occurred last night in Ankara and Istanbul, meanwhile, had nothing to do with the attacks and was due to a fiber cable installation carried out by Türk Telekom.
