Hackers allegedly crash news websites

July 31st, 2012
Most visited Azerbaijani websites such as musavat.com, qafqaz.info, publika.az and trend.az recently faced browsing (when one continually gets DND errors trying to browse) and reloading problems, reported modern.az website.

The alleged hackers used IP address belonging to a telecommunications company based in Turkey, musavat.com editor Khalid Kazimli said to modern.az

“Our web service provider has restricted access to the portal to avoid more serious damage. We do not know the exact reason for this attack, but we suspect that the attack might have been ordered by those discontent with the article published on our website. The story was about the possible emergence of “Great Kurdistan”, said Kazimli. According to Kazimli, the company hosting  their website is presently engaged in SQL database recovery and musavat.com will soon restore its services.
