The hacktivist group Anonymous has claimed the government of Turkey as its latest victim, taking down 74 web sites and releasing a collection of data said to be harvested from more than 100 Turkish government domains on well known torrent site, The Pirate Bay.
The data in the torrent file, dubbed ‘Turkish Takedown Thursday‘, is said to have been obtained covertly, and the hacking group claimed that the sites’ administrators were unaware of the attacks until the sites were taken down.

The group is also finding itself in the cross-hairs of other hackers. As reported by The Inquirer, a group calling itself Team Poison has posted a dump of information that it claims to have collected from Anonymous and LulzSec members.
Members of Team Poison have previously threatened to disclose information on members of LulzSec.
