Vatican web technicians minimized damage from hackers' attack
March 09, 2012
Vatican technicians managed to blunt the main force of an attack by hackers on the Holy See’s web site, a spokesman has reported.
Although the attack by the ‘Anonymous’ hackers’ collaborative shut down access to the Vatican site on March 7, the site was restored with hours, and fully functional the next day, notes Father Ciro Benedettini, the deputy director of the Vatican press office.
Father Benedettini also remarked that Anonymous was unable to post its own logo on the Vatican site. The group has made that gesture when it has successfully gained control of the web sites of other prominent institutions.
