According to a given interview to Hürriyet Daily News, RedHack a hacker group who is responsible for the Major cyber attacks on the Turkish Institutions will target Computer Supported Central Voter Registry System (SEÇSİS), the official computer software program used in elections, as its next big target. (HDN reported).

Group also stated that  it will “take the necessary steps to ensure a fair election”.

“In the name of having a fair election and supervising this freak system called SEÇSİS, we have announced and will continue to announce who must be given the shoulder through social media, by giving support to IT experts and civil initiatives,” group added.

However, Redhack stressed that it would not be intervening in SEÇSİS in terms of altering the election results, as this would only play into the government’s hand. “We care more about supporting those who are experts on IT, digital information platforms and electronic infrastructure throughout the election process,” the group also added.

According to HDN, RedHack’s 12 core members will decide to attack a target based on its ideology, which it defines as “Marxist/Leninist.”

One of the group member also told HDN, “Our sole criterion is to select the institutions that cause events that hurt the public conscience; in other words, the institutions and capital groups that determine the oppressing attitude of the current system. Attaining the information, sharing this information and questioning the system by taking the public good into account are decisive in target selection,”

Last week Turkish Police website was also taken down by RedHack.
