Court website back up after Anonymous 'hacktivist' attack

Rome, May 21 - The official website of the Court of Rome that was shut down by "hacktivist" network Anonymous is back in operation, authorities said on Tuesday. The hacker network claimed responsibility just days after police arrested four Italian members of the cyber rebels for allegedly hacking into computer systems of the national government, parliament and the Vatican. "This is where we will block," a member of the network claimed Monday on Facebook, referring to last Friday's arrests. The four arrested last Friday, in four different Italian cities, are believed to have also penetrated key infrastructure computer systems as well as those of major firms. Anonymous, a digital activism umbrella group linked to numerous high-profile cyber attacks worldwide, has stepped up a campaign in Italy over the last two years.
