Website of Russian embassy in Israel resumes work after hacker attack

The website of the Russian embassy in Israel has resumed operation after a hacker attack.

Earlier on Sunday, the embassy's website was not accessible after an attack of supposedly Turkish hackers. Users are redirected to a page containing texts in the Turkish language and respective symbols.

"The website is not working. The causes are being probed into. Efforts are being taken jointly with the Israeli provider to resume the website's operation," Russian embassy's spokesman Yevgeny Piskupov told TASS.

According to the Israeli media say, a group of Turkish hackers, Bortecine Siber Tim, has claimed responsibility for the attack. In early January, this group broke a social network page of Russian Minister of Communication Nikolai Nikiforov.

Back in March 2012, the site of the Russian diplomatic mission was attacked by the so-called TheHackersArmy. Prior that, the site was broken in April, 2010.
