Turkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs Hacked by RedHack

Turkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs Hacked by RedHack: Hackers of the RedHack collective have breached the systems of Turkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs. The hacktivists said the attack was launched in protest against the Sivas massacre that took place 20 years ago.

The hackers have published the username and password for the systems of the Directorate of Religious Affairs, allowing anyone to alter the ministry’s website. “Religious Affairs is responsible for exculpating murderers and setting divisions between other religions in Turkey. It must be transparent,” the hackers stated.They added, “Ministry of Religious Affairs only serves the Sunnis, this is discriminatory & divides people. It must serve all religions or be abolished.” “Ministry of Religious Affairs hack: This is an answer to those who dine for Ramadan at five-star hotels but burn people at three-star ones,” they said.

Thousands of people marched to the Madimak Hotel in the Central Anatolian province of Sivas to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the arson attack that took place on July 2, 1993, Hürriyet Daily News reported.

Last week, RedHack breached the systems of the Istanbul Special Provincial Administration ioi.gov.tr, claiming to have erased everyone’s debts.
