Turkish hackers initiated a “cyberwar” with Greece days ago, when the website of Chalkidona Municipality was downed.
Ayyidiz Tim, the “cyber soldier of Turkey,” took responsibility for downing the website of the small municipality of about only 30,000 people in the Thessaloniki regional unit.
However, the reaction from Greek hackers, specifically Anonymous Greece, was strong.
Anonymous Greece responded immediately by not taking down a small local Turkish municipality website, but the entire Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs website, as well as the Turkish Defence Ministry website, as reported by Greek City Times.
The Greek hackers in response to downing the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs said “Turkey, we also attack. We would like to inform the Mongols to calm down because they will lose the ball.”
However, the Greek hackers did not end their revenge attack by downing the two Ministry websites, but also downed the Turkish government Cyber Security website and broke into Turkey’s medical system and attained 150,772 pieces of medical data.
Anonymouos Greece completely embarrassed the efforts of Ayyidiz Tim.
However, to cover for this embarrassment, Turkish media made false claims that the Turkish hacking community, RootAyyıldız, had downed the website of the Greek Interior Ministry.
"The Turkish hacker community, RootAyyıldız, announced that it has hacked the official website of the Greek Interior Ministry and the e-government portal, Yeniçağ said.
"RootAyyıldız announced on its website that it was responsible for cyber attacks; group that carried out the attacks in Athens as a response to the threat to Turkey. In the statement made by the Hacker group page, they said: We 'downed' the einventory.e-gif.gov.gr address of Greece," the Kemalist outlet said.
The website they claimed they downed, was always live and working, as observed by Greek City Times.
In addition, many social media users also highlighted that the website was fully functioning and that it was fake news that Turkish hackers had brought down a Greek government website.
