Hacker cracks Turkish mosques' sound system
Published on:Sunday, January 10, 2010 - 22:57
In north-eastern Turkey, in the city of Rize, a hacker has succeeded in breaking into a sound system servicing 170 mosques. He then made alterations that replaced the call to prayer with traditional Turkish music.
The mufti of Rize has now taken measures to ensure the system's future safety. He said few of the city's Muslims appreciated the hacker's action. The identity of the hacker remains unknown.
