The Hacktivist group Anonymous warns of an impending storm after they attacked the website of the Vatican.
The group who is responsible for attacking high-profile corporations and government institutions warns of a “coming storm”.
Italian members of the group attacked the Vatican website as a sign of protest against the Church’s scandals, conservative doctrines and controversial history.
The website was inaccessible for hours last Wednesday though a spokesperson from the Vatican didn’t confirm the attack but told the media that their technicians are working to fix the problem.
Anonymous Italian website issued a statement which read, “Anonymous has decided to put your site under siege in response to your doctrine, liturgy and the absurd and anachronistic rules that your profit-making organization spreads around the world.”
They also said on Twitter, “Trust us. You think you’ve seen the full muscles of #Anonymous up to now? Nah, you ain’t seen NOTHING yet. Get ready. #March2012.”
Last Tuesday, FBI agents arrested members of Anonymous and LulzSec and charged them with conspiracy.
According to a Tweet by Anonymous as a response to the arrests, “LulzSec was a group, but Anonymous is a movement. Groups come and go, ideas remain.”
