Anonymous dumps huge data trove online after Turkish police get ‘hacked’

Hacktivist collective Anonymous claims to have dumped online a huge database belonging to Turkey’s General Directorate of Security (EGM) in response to “various abuses” by the Turkish government in recent months.

The person who uploaded the database Monday said he received it from a hacker who had “persistent access to various parts of the Turkish government infrastructure for the past two years.”

The files were released “in light of various government abuses in the past few months” in Turkey, as the activist “decided to take action against corruption,” the activists added.

EGM is the civilian police force in Turkey, tasked with preventing crime, keeping the peace and protecting citizens and their property.
