ARMENIA: Wave of hacker attacks blamed on Azerbaijan

Posted by Info on 22/08/2009

EurasiaNet: A surge in hacker attacks on several Armenian government and private websites has prompted Armenian information technology experts to demand that Armenia’s Internet security become a matter of state security.

..hackers posted on the sites swear words in English, the flags of Azerbaijan and Turkey, a map that shows the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh as part of Azerbiajan, and photos of victims from the 1988-1994 Nagorno-Karabakh war.

“It’s not even important what they place [on the websites] . . . this stuff will be deleted. Maybe someone will lose their job, maybe not,” commented SmartTech’s Muradian. “What is important is our attitude to security. Even one hijacked website is a big problem in terms of information security. “
