According to reports, Anonymous, a Hacktivist group has assumed responsibility for a heavily coordinated cyber-attack that wounded Turkey’s Internet infrastructure last week. The organization vowed to continue it’s attacks on the Nation’s Internet unless they ceased all support of ISIS (including purchasing their oil).
As reported by RT:
“The Anonymous hacktivist group has taken responsibility for a powerful cyber-attack on the Turkish sector of the internet last week. It promised to continue waging cyber warfare on .tr domains until Ankara stops the “insanity” of supporting Islamic State.
The massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack on Turkish websites last week, initially attributed to spooky “Russian hackers,” has been clarified with Anonymous issuing a video claiming responsibility and declaring cyber war on Turkey for supporting terrorists of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).”
The cyber attacks against Turkey were so intense that the only way to restore the domains that had been forced offline was to completely shut-down all International internet traffic.
“The DDoS attack (measured in gigabits per second, or plainly how much traffic is being sent to a site) on Turkish DNS servers reached 40 Gbps, quite enough to shut down altogether any domain.
The attack began on December 14, and came to a halt only a week later, on December 21. Turkish media alleged that 400,000 .tr domains were forced offline.”
