RedHack, the most professional hackavism group from Turkey has hacked the official “online data sharing portal” of Turkey’s Higher Education Council (yok.gov.tr) this morning, leaking thousands of cables related to corruption investigations in universities.

The hackers contacted us with their one of the most prominent hack in which the site was completely defaced, displaying the group’s deface page and a message in Turkish language which bashes the HEC for high fee structure and corrupting the whole education system, putting the students future in jeopardy. 

“The cables include corruption investigations in Giresun, İstanbul, Hacettepe, Adnan Menderes and Uludağ Universities. We will keep on releasing more,” the hacker group said.

Some of the cables included facts about the land sale plans in Ataturk Orman Ciftligi, an Ankara park established by the order of Mustafa Kemal, Turkey’s first president; transaction details of the money transfers between Uludag University and a private bank; and a sum of roughly 700.000 euros unaccounted by Istanbul University.

According to the message:

“At first, all the universities in the Middle East Technical University will continue to resist the attacks of the AKP” 
‘University INC., the HEC and not pass the law’ 

“The new components of Higher Education and university against university students, a reduced draft law. Power in the coming period, universities, students are increasingly soyutlaştırıp, certain individuals would like to be perceived as companies. We show that this law also did not want to rebel at METU.HEC would like to state what the old nor the new state. Traders university, science, science for the benefit of non-public institutions producing elements and repeat until arınana continue our struggle until you “
