Church of Scientology website being attacked by hackers

>>Full Story.

Wikinews has learned that according to an internet posting made just over 24 hours ago, the Church of Scientology's website is being attacked by hackers, causing the site to shut down.

The attack was launched on Wednesday by a user calling himself "Anonymous", on the website "Project Chanology". The "History" section of the site explains, in a satirical fashion, that the incident was prompted by the Church of Scientology's attempts to remove the Tom Cruise video from YouTube.

"Someone emailed me earlier today talking about a tool a group’s been using to attack the scientology website. It’s an interesting tool, created to overload/create malformed strings and crash a website’s database," said the post by an unknown author on pigmy.

Attacking a website is silly. The whole cult ought to be shut down. The FBI should investigate the abusive practices. Many survived Scientology and have long sad stories to tell.

Dumb kids hacking a cult's website because South Park inspired them to isn't exactly what I call "news".

The only thing more obsessive than the Church of Scientology itself is the army of psychotic online attackers who blame the cult for everything that's wrong in the world, including the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa, droughts in the midwest, and the extinction of dinosaurs. I wish both camps would just shut up and go away.

Whether pro or con, I think any sensible person with their priorities straight is totally sick of hearing about Scientology at this point. Stop giving them free publicity on a daily basis for every little detail of new gossip, why don't you?

You're actually quite the fucktard, champ.

What's scary is that those commenting are also "anonymous". That of course keeps the real "Anonymous" group...anonymous. Will the real Anonymous please stand up? Of course, Anonymous doesn't have a face does he? Just a mask. So, I repeat. Will the real Anonymous please stand up?

"army of psychotic online attackers"
Thank you.

Anonymous does not condone Scientology's brainwashing, or Scientology's cult. Nor does Anonymous condone Scientology's hand in the attempted removal of media from the Internets through legal action.

Let's try using a legitimate tactic. The following post takes aim at Scientology for legitimate shortcomings: their philosophy is a "borrowed and distorted" version of a philosophy - Stoicism - that has been around for 2000 years. So much for originality.

Will history remember this? It depends on how far you are willing to go, anonymous. It's up to you to stay anonymous. Use every power you have to hide yourself.
Remember, scientology has a lot of crazy up their sleeves, but this, the internet, is our home court.

The particular electronic cigarette ego basic starter kit is fantastic for new users.
Their producers imagine this can make the user a lot more mindful in the should change the batteries, lessening the
prospect of the discover program failing through ability
loss. Both Intel and AMD contain information built in the processor to allow the processor to be
used efficiently with mobile computing saving on battery life
while giving the best performance.

Just make sure your box leaves the impression they have
something wonderful waiting for them inside of it. Again, be careful when using the vinegar as some people may have an
unpleasant reaction to the acid in the vinegar. The reflections of the sky,
not only in the water, but on the boat as well, lend a hand to a desired
blending of color and a balance that is perfection.
