The cyber war between Anti-Armenia Team from Azerbaijan and The Monte Melkonian Cyber Army (MMCA) from Armenia is getting more sophisticated with every passing day. Last month the MMCA leaked sensitive data from Azerbaijan Ministry servers and in reply, the Azerbaijani hackers have come up with a huge cyber attack in which top Armenian government websites have been hacked.
The attack was conducted 3 days ago in which the hackers were able to hack the official website of Permanent Mission of Armenia in NATO, Permanent Mission to the organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and Permanent Mission to the United Nations.
Oh wait, that’s not it, the hackers have also hacked websites of Amerimnain embassies in 40 countries including the Embassy of Armenia to Argentina, Austria, the Republic of Belarus, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, France, Georgia, Batumi, Germany, Hellenic Republic, Vatican City State, India, Iraq, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Lithuania, Kingdom of the Netherlands, Poland, Russian Federation, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Turkmenistan, United Kingdom, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates and the United States of America.

In an exclusive conversation with the hackers, HackRead was told that:
”One should notice that on 26 July of 2014 Anti-Armenia Team” hackers had destroyed official website of Armenian president and some ministeries of the country. Armenian experts confessed several times that anti-Armenia hackers create problem to Armenia on the national level and they don’t have enough intellectual resources to fight against them.”
