"Turkish defacer rootayyildiz my team hacktivizm.org Message We condemn your welcome to the Greek Prime Minister of Greek origin who attacked Islam, we warn you to be on the same side with Greece Do not be fooled by the Zionist forces, we will save your powerful Ottoman grandchildren. ”

It should be mentioned that the reason for this hacking attack was the decision to visit him Kyriakou Mitsotaki in Libya, Accompanied by Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, he held extended talks, as the Greek aspiration is for the whole framework of diplomatic relations to enter a new orbit, after December 2019 and the signing of the Turkish-Turkish memorandum by the Saraj government.
Athens intends, with this visit of the Prime Minister and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, to discuss with the Libyan transitional government the Greek positions, as they have been formulated in their entirety in the recent past.

What is a defacement attack?
A defacement attack is a kind of "vandalism" of a website, where hackers penetrate the website and replace its content with their own messages. It is usually used to cover something bigger, in the background, and the messages may convey a political or religious message, inappropriate content, or a notice that the site has been compromised.
