Turkey government blocked access to some hosting sites, such as OneDrive, Dropbox and GitHub, after a group of hackers leaked Turkish government emails, the media reported this Monday morning.
More than 57,500 stolen emails are shedding light on what’s being called a widespread campaign of propaganda and deception. TurkeyBlocks.org says the sites in question are issuing SSL errors, ‘ indicating intercepted traffic at the national or ISP level’. Microsoft removed the links to the emails cache, which resulted in a partial ease of the ban, it was said.
In 2015 April, the country blocked access to YouTube and Twitter, following a hostage situation where images of an Istanbul prosecutor being held hostage circulated online.
There were also talks that social media was blocked during the recent coup attempts, as well, although nothing was confirmed.
