Hacker sites and foreign press are picking up the story today of the arrest of at least 23 hackers in 13 different provinces in Turkey. The news was first seen in Russian on 09MAR2010, but is now spreading into the English speaking press, with more details available.

News.AZ ran the story 23 Kurdish hackers arrested in Turkey, which provides some basic facts that the hackers are associated with the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, and were taken to Diyarbakır for further questioning. This article calls the hacker team the "Cold Attack Team", and says that it took orders from leaders in Kandil in Iraq and in Europe regarding what websites to hack and what messages to place there. It also mentions that the hackers distributed a PowerPoint attachment via email which would trojan the readers computer.


This is some year for malware / botnet operators.

Wow. I wonder if those Turkish prisons are as accommodating as they have been made out to be in the movies? Still too good for them!

I guess I'd like to know what their organization did to get outlawed in Turkey. My understanding is that simply being in favor of an independent Kurdish state is enough. If these were acts of peaceful civil disobedience to state a political message they aren't legally allowed to express, I can't get too upset about it. If we could get all the other political groups in the Mideast to stick to digital vandalism instead of explosives, the whole region would be a lot better off.
