Turkey Police have arrested seven alleged RedHack Hackers , accused of hacking into databases of the Ankara Police Directorate and POLNET (Police Net).
RedHack team consisted of five members with the aliases "pReCipiCe", "Xebat", "MaNYaK", "BayRed" and "RedJunior". RedHack group claimed that none of them was among the people taken into police custody.
"They took young people into custody who shared news about RedHack on their facebook account after the file had been sent to the special authority prosecution. They created offenders according to the crime only to save face. They are trying to control the internet as the only place they are not able to control. They should release these young people and attend to us". Turkey news site bianet quoted as 'RedHack group' saying.
The RedHack members stated that 15-year-old high school students were among the people taken into custody. "How can a 15-year-old student be a member of a group that was founded in 1997?" they questioned.
"Everybody has been a member for ten years. We have no new members. We are here and we believe that what we are doing is correct, just and legitimate. If they are a real government they should investigate the 'police memorandum' disclosed by the documents instead of addressing 15-year-old juveniles as the enemy".
RedHack emphasized that "the leakage of dozens of confidential documents related to the Ergenekon trial has not been investigated. The only difference to us is that they leaked the documents for money or to assist the religious community whereas we took them fairly".
