Rome, May 20 - The official website of the Court of
Rome was shut down Monday after members of the "hacktivist"
network Anonymous said they broke into its computer system.
The cyber attack comes just days after police arrested four
Italian members of the network for allegedly hacking into
computer systems of the national government, parliament and the
Vatican.
"This is where we will block," a member of the network
claimed Monday on Facebook, referring to last Friday's arrests.
"This is where we will fight! This is where we die!," the
post continued.
"Do you think you have cut off (our) head? We are still
alive and will continue to follow our ideals".
The four arrested last Friday, in four different Italian
cities, are believed to have also penetrated key infrastructure
computer systems as well as those of major firms.
Anonymous, a digital activism umbrella group linked to
numerous high-profile cyber attacks worldwide, has stepped up a
campaign in Italy over the last two years.
In April, hackers from the group brought down the home
pages of the Italian interior ministry, the police and the
Carabinieri.
In a statement circulated online, the hackers said
operation 'Tango Down' was a counterattack for a list of
grievances including labour injustice in Italy and police
brutality at protests in Genoa in 2001 surrounding the G8
summit.
Hackers under the same moniker successfully took down the
Vatican home page twice in March.
Anonymous came to world prominence in December 2010 when
thousands of supporters downloaded its attack software to defend
WikiLeaks, the whistle-blowing website founded by Julian
Assange.
