Azerbaijani Hackers Target Russian Embassy In Armenia

On the backdrop of the Azerbaijani-Armenian military conflict in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, Azerbaijani hackers from the Anti-Armenia Team successfully hacked and defaced the Twitter account for the Russian embassy in Armenia (@rusembassyARM) on April 5, 2016, using it to post Azeri flags and tweets against Armenia and Russia.

Below are several images from the hack:
