A number of state institutions, political parties and commercial organizations websites of Germany and the Netherlands were defaced by Turkish hackers in response to “aggressive and anti-democratic actions of Germany and the Netherlands against the Turkish nation”. Unknown cyber criminals demand the European countries to stop to interfere in Turkish political process; otherwise hackers threaten to continue cyber-attacks on information networks of Germany and the Netherlands. At the moment it is confirmed that the work of nmw-tv.de and weser-kurier.de Internet resources was paralyzed by the actions of Turkish hackers.
The reason for Turkish cyber-attacks is the diplomatic scandal that broke out between Turkey and the governments of the Netherlands and Germany. The reason for the conflict was the ban of the Dutch and the German authorities on holding public events in support of the new constitution of the Turkish Republic with the participation of Turkish officials. In response, Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan compared the policy of the German and the Dutch governments to the policy of “national socialists” and “fascists”. Erdogan’s behavior is not surprising, because the new Turkish constitution will only strengthen the almighty Turkish leader and shut the mouths of the opposition.
It is noteworthy that last year Turkish hackers became famous throughout the world by attacking the Los Angeles Presbyterian Hospital computer system, having its work paralyzed. American physicians had to pay an amount of 17,000 dollars hackers regain the information system access. We all wonder if the Turkish cyber-attack remains unanswered this time?
