Turkish Bank & Government Website Servers Under Intense Sustained Cyberattack
"Turkey is suffering from a wave of cyber-attacks on financial and government websites which intensified over Christmas, resulting in the temporary disruption of credit card transactions.

A video released this week and attributed to Anonymous vowed retribution for Ankara’s alleged ties with ISIS.

The attacks on Turkish servers have been persistent in recent weeks, but on Christmas day Turkish banks suffered a website outage and reportedly saw sporadic disruption to credit card transactions. Isbank, Garanti and Ziraat Bank were among the targets, local media reported.

Turkish Telecom, in a statement to Hurriyet daily, said that they are now on “24/7 defense” as they acknowledged facing “thousands of attacks.” Most Turkish institutions use Turk Telekom as their service provider."

"Turkish Internet servers have suffered one of the most intense cyberattacks ever seen in the country over the last week, according to an Internet management body, raising fears Ankara may be a target of political hackers.

Internet experts said it was not clear who was behind the attacks that began on Monday. But Nic.tr, a non-government body that administers addresses for websites using the ".tr" domain, including ministries, the military, banks and many commercial sites, said they originated from "organized sources" outside Turkey.

Local media reports have suggested a flood of traffic to Turkish internet servers handling more than 300,000 websites, could be coming from Russia. They cited Turkey's soured relations with Moscow after the downing of a Russian warplane last month on the Syrian border.

The Anonymous hacking group posted a video over the weekend on YouTube, that has since been removed, saying attacks would continue if Turkey "doesn't stop supporting" Islamic State."
