Italian police arrest suspected 'Anonymous' hackers

Catholic World News - May 17, 2013

Italian police have arrested four suspected members of the internet hackers’ collaborative known as “Anonymous,” who are believed to be responsible for attacks on the internet sites of the Italian government and the Vatican, among others.

The May 16 arrests, carried out in several different Italian cities, were the 2nd major law-enforcement effort against “Anonymous” in that country; 15 people were arrested in a series of raids in 2011.

“Anonymous” is believed responsible for dozens of internet attacks, which have crashed or taken over the computer sites of financial corporations, media outlets, and government agencies around the world.
