Turkish hacker group targets Austrian National Bank

The Local reports:

The hackers’ collective, which goes under the name of Aslan Neferler, said the cyber attacks on Austrian institutions are revenge for Austria’s “anti-Turkish political stance”.

They claimed responsibility for two DoS-attacks on Friday night, when most of the bank’s IT-technicians were not working. By sending five million emails per minute the attackers tried to clog the bank’s server.
