Members of Anonymous recently hacked and defaced the Web site for the Moscow court that sentenced members of the rock band Pussy Riot to prison.

"The three members of Pussy Riot, Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Yekaterina Samutsevich, were sentenced to two years each last week, after being found guilty of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred after performing a 'punk prayer' at the altar of Christ The Saviour Cathedral in Moscow this February," writes TechWeekEurope's Tom Brewster. "The decision prompted an international outcry, with politicians and celebrities condemning the sentence."

"For three hours on Tuesday morning, Khamovnichesky Court’s usually static Web site was enlivened with a recording of the new Pussy Riot song, 'Putin Is Lighting the Fires of Revolution,' and an embedded copy of a music video for a song called 'Hate,' by the Bulgarian gay icon Azis," write The New York Times' Ilya Mouzykantskii and Robert Mackey.

"In a statement to the Interfax news agency, court press officer Darya Lyakh said that the attackers had 'bad imagination' and that security experts were trying to determine how attackers were able to breach the site's security," writes Sophos' Paul Roberts.

"The website for the Khamovnichesky District Court was temporarily down for maintenance to repair the defacement, and now appears to be operating normally," writes SC Magazine's Danielle Walker.
