Anonymous Vents Its Anger on the Vatican

By Sam Gibbs on at

Looks like Anonymous has been lashing out after its betrayal by Sabu, venting its anger on the heads of the Catholic church. The Italian branch of the wounded-but-not-dead hacking group took down the Vatican site and put up a long list of crimes and misdeeds the church was responsible for throughout history.

"Today, 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 organisation spreads around the world."

Whether you’re with Anonymous in its loathing of the Vatican or not, it shows that even though the FBI has managed to cut the head off the beast, the collective certainly isn’t dead yet; it is meant to be a de-centralised collective after all, so who needs a leader? I get the feeling this isn’t the last we’ll hear from Anonymous. [Reuters]
