The famous hacker collective RedHack claimed to have hacked into the systems of Turkish Ministry of Finance, as part of the protest against the fact that the salary raises of civil servants had been 'ridiculously small.'
However, Turkey Finance Ministry has denied the hacking claims from RedHack.
“All systems provided by the ministry through the Internet have been working without any problem,” Hurriyet Daily News quoted the statement from the ministry .
A legal investigation into RedHack was launched after the group staged a cyber attack on the Ankara Police Department’s website in February 2012.
Turkish authorities have named RedHack as a terrorist group. Prosecutors demanded up to 24 years in prison for alleged members of the hacker group for the cyberattacks they’ve launched against government systems over the past years.
In the first hearing, held Nov. 26, an Ankara court freed three arrested suspects in the alleged hacking case, pending trial.
