Hackers attack Vatican website again

2012-03-12 19:32

Vatican City - The Vatican website has been hacked for the second time in several days, an attack believed to be the work of the amorphous internet activist group Anonymous.

The group last week claimed to have taken down the Vatican website to protest everything from Catholic doctrine to the sexual abuse of children.

The site, www.vatican.va, has been inaccessible for parts of Monday afternoon.

Vatican officials declined to discuss the breach while the attack was still under way.

Italian media reported that after last week's attack, Anonymous posted online part of the Vatican Radio database, including names, user names and passwords.

      Don't listen then - buy your Easter bunny chocolate and be happy like everyone else. Whether you take any religious meaning from the Easter season is irrelevant unless you are Christian.
