Church of Scientology's Launches Denial-of-Service Attack

(Ucs Technology News) In an attempt to silence it’s online critics the Church of Scientology is fighting back. According to web traffic analysis the Church of Scientology has launched a massive attack involving over 3,500 servers including at-least 3 hired eastern european Black Bot-Nets. Traffic analysis has located the target of the attack: The Internet.

Unable to locate the group of hackers calling itself “Anonymous”, the Church of Scientology’s is working to swamp the internet to halt attacks on it’s own websites.

The original attack was launched January 19 by Anonymous, which is seeking media attention to help “save people from Scientology by reversing the brainwashing,” according to a Web page maintained by Anonymous.

Anonymous claims to have knocked the Church’s Web site offline with a distributed denial-of-service attack, in which many computers bombard the victim’s server with requests, overwhelming it with data in the hope of ultimately knocking the system offline. True to its name, Anonymous does not disclose the true identities of its members.
