The cyber war between Armenians and Azerbaijani hackers seems never ending — Like this recent cyber attack in which the Armenian hackers from The Monte Melkonian Cyber Army (MMCA) hacked Azerbaijani government portals and stole sensitive data.
The Armenian hackers from Monte Melkonian Cyber Army (MMCA) are back in action and this time with yet another cyber attack on Azerbaijani government servers. The MMCA hackers have conducted a sophisticated cyber attack on Azerbaijani government portals by using their DDoSing and hacking skills to celebrate the Armenian Army day.
The attack was conducted on 28th January in which the hackers shut down the E-Government Portal (e-gov.az), Ministry of Taxes of the Republic of Azerbaijan (taxes.gov.az) and the official Internet resource of the State Bodies (gov.az).
