Hackers set sites on Eurovision
The Eurovision song contest became the subject of a hacker attack on Thursday. A group of computer geeks calling themselves "Fedai of Liberty" attacked several official websites of the music fair, currently underway in the Azerbaijan capital, Baku.
ґThe hackers posted their slogans on the websites they attacked, protesting against the pop music extravaganza.
To make things look serious, Fedai of Liberty placed a photo of Rafig Tagi - an Azeri writer critical of Islam and the Prophet Mohammed - who was killed last year.
The hacking attack created serious problems in the work of several sites, namely eurovision.az, eurovisionaz.com, esctoday.com and ann.az.
Their functioning was brought back to normal only several hours after the attack.
Public relations and communication manager of the Eurovision 2012 Tahir Mammadov told APA that the causes of the incident are being investigated.
