After learning that journalists who support them have been threatened, the RedHack group has decided to leak another series of classified documents stolen from the Turkish government. This time, they leaked a file containing the identities of Turkish police informants.
According to the hacktivists, this move is a response to the fact that state-controlled media outlets have started publishing sensitive information on those who support RedHack’s cause.
“As these conditions were set by them and freedom defender’s details are published with the help of government, we have taken a decision,” they wrote
one day before publishing the police informant files.
“Since they are attacking those people fighting for freedom, we will not let them walk alone. Starting from the beginning, we will publish all the leaked documents we have managed to gather, uncensored. We will only stop when they cease to treat these lamers with double standard and treat them as equal as us.”
The hackers claim that they possess 15 other similar files and they plan on publishing all of them if the threats against journalists and academicians don't stop.
Recently, after they breached
the systems of Turkey’s Foreign Ministry, a prosecutor demanded the group to be placed on the list of terrorist organizations.
“Since we are ‘terrorists’ and those who publish details of innocent people are heroes, then we will act with the language they understand. We won’t play the inoffensive any longer. The choice is yours; either put the leash on these corrupted lamers that lacks knowledge of code or face the consequences,” they added.
Furthermore, they claim that authorities haven’t got any real evidence against the seven individuals they arrested for their involvement in the hacktivist movement.
“The only evidence against them is a PlayStation Cd’s,” they said.
