Vatican Hacked Again


Members of Anonymous recently launched its second cyber attack against the Vatican this month.

"Unlike the first hack, which appeared to be a typical Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, this one is more than just taking down the website," writes ZDNet's Emil Protalinski. "The main target of the new strike is Vatican Radio, and [the] attack is possible because of a backdoor Anonymous created for itself the first time around."

"A Pastebin post details what Anonymous wants from the Vatican," Protalinski writes.
