The sites were hacked two days ago where hackers left their deface page along with an anti-Armenian video message on all hacked websites. The links of all hacked websites is available here.

The total number of targeted websites is 64, which includes high profile Armenian government ministries such as Ministry of Education, police, city districts, Artsakh State University, Youth For Achievements” Educational NGO, Football Federation of Armenia and several other Armenian website.

Azerbaijani hackers contacted me via email and explained about the hack. However, it is unclear if they have acquired any sensitive data or not.

This is not the first time when Azerbaijani hackers have targeted high profile Armenian government ministries. Last year the Anti-Armenian team had breached in to the server of National Security Service of Armenia and leaked highly confidential documents. The same team hacked top Armenian ministries websites earlier in August 2013.

Azerbaijan and Armenia are known for their conflict over the Nagorno-Karabakh, both countries even had a war on the same issue.

At the time of publishing this article, all websites were restored and working online.
