Anonymous Official Press Release To Turkish Government Leaders:
“As many of you have heard, Turkey is supporting Daesh [Isis] by buying oil from them and hospitalizing their fighters.”
“We won’t accept that Erdogan, the leader of Turkey, will help Isis any longer. The news media has already stated that Turkey’s internet has been the victim of massive DDoS attacks.”
“Dear Government of Turkey, if you don’t stop supporting Isis, we will continue attacking your internet, your root DNS [the foundation of Turkey’s internet], your banks and take your government sites down.
After the root DNS we will start to hit your airports, military assets and private state connections. We will destroy your critical banking infrastructure.”
“Stop this insanity now, Turkey. Your fate is in your hands.”
