CWN Editor's Note: Vatican officials shut down the “” web server on November 30, after an apparent hacking attempt.

Access to the Vatican site was gradually restored during the day, but the Vatican press office remained offline. Spokesman Matteo Bruni said that site was shut down early in the day because of “abnormal attempt to access the site.”

Although there was no evidence pointing to the source of the attack, both China and Russia—nations notorious for computer hacking—have recently been annoyed by public statements from the Holy See.
