The famous online Turkish hacktivists from RedHack have hacked and defaced the official website of Justice and Development Party (AKP) which is Turkish ruling party at the moment, led by current Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. 

The hack is conducted against the recent arrest of 14 Turkish youth Taylan Kulaçoğlu, accused of being members of RedHack hacktivist group. RedHack claims that the youth has no links with the group and arrest is based on false allegation.

Hackers have left a deface page along with a message in Turkish language on hacked AKP website, according to the message: 

  • Hacked by RedHack! Innocent people get arrested, they have nothing to do with RedHack! We will not longer accept this. We are with Taylan! People are always suffering under this system!

RedHack vows to target Turkish government until the release of all 14 youth.
