Anonymous began setting up its own social network after profiles set up by its members on Google+ were removed last week. Several days later, the rival hacker group from Turkey defaced the pre-beta site's front page with the joke version of the standard Anonymous logo and a message mocking the group in Turkish and English.
"We Are TURKIYE We Are Akincilar. This logo suits you more ... How dare you rise against to the World ... Do you really think that you are Ottoman Empire? We thought you before that you cannot challenge with the world and we teach you cannot be social Now all of you go to your doghouse ..." read the message.
Details of how the hack was perpetrated are unknown, but are likely to have involved either easily exploited site vulnerabilities or sloppy password security: the same vulnerabilities that Anonymous has been criticising big business for, through its AntiSec campaign.
Developers behind AnonPlus had a few choice words for Turkish hackers dismissing them, among other things, as "snobby, arrogant, IGNORANT little fucking children" in a counter-rant.
Anonymous attacked government websites in Turkey in protest against controversial internet filtering plans back in June. Turkish police arrested 32 suspects days later.
