Hacker Causes Massive Data Breach By Hacking Turkish Hospitals; Anonymous Denies Connection

May 25, 2016


On May 17, 2016, a hacker claiming to be a member of the Anonymous hacker collective posted a YouTube video claiming to have hacked a series of Turkish hospitals and leaking a large database of patient info, arguing that the hack was retaliation for the hacking of U.S. hospitals.

However, when approached about the matter on Twitter the following day, Anonymous denied any connection to the hack, and distanced itself from the act.
