Armenian Government Websites Hacked and Defaced by Azerbaijani Group


Armenian government websites hacked by Anti-Armenia Team

Hackers of the Azerbaijani group called Anti-Armenia Team have breached and defaced a total of 64 Armenian websites. Some of them belong to the country’s government and other high-profile organizations.

According to HackRead, the list of targets includes the Ministry of Education, the police, the Football Federation of Armenia, the Artsakh State University, and the Ministry of Urban Development.

At the time of writing, the websites have been restored. Links to mirrors of the defacements are available on Pastebin.

It’s worth noting that some of these websites were breached and defaced last year by the same group, which indicates that the Armenian government does a poor job securing its sites.

The cyberattacks launched by the Anti-Armenia Team are carried out in support of Azerbaijan in the country’s territorial dispute with Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh state.
