Hacked! Porsche's lawsuit against London website taken over by 1923Turk - or something

The Republic of Turkey was founded in 1923. If you think this has nothing to do with green cars, you're mostly right. Today, though, it does, if only because someone (or a group of someones) has hacked into the news section of Porsche's Judicial Review website and posted a few messages in Turkish stating that the site has been hacked. I don't read Turkish, so I'm not certain what the hack says, exactly, but it doesn't seem to be the only time 1923Turk has struck. Right off the top of my head, I can't see any reason for pro-Turkey hackers to take aim at the ongoing dispute between Porsche and Transport for London's congestion charge (Forgot what this is about? Check out our previous posts here and here), but what do I know about haxors and their targets?

Speaking about the Porsche fight, the company announced today the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has applied to be an interested party in the judicial review against the £25 congestion charge. Read more after the break.

Statement from Porsche:

Porsche Welcomes Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to Congestion Charge Fight

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has applied to join Porsche as an interested party in the judicial review of the Mayor of London's unfair £25 tax on motorists.

Commenting on the news, Andy Goss, Managing Director of Porsche Cars GB, said; "I am pleased that Kensington and Chelsea has joined us in our fight against this unfair, counter-productive tax against motorists. It is becoming increasingly clear that Londoners are rejecting this unfair £25 charge that will likely make congestion and the environment worse than it is today."
