As part of "Operation Titstorm" the Prime Minister's home page was plastered with pornography. The Australian parliamentary website was also crippled for almost an hour. Among the ministries affected was the Communications Department, which is pressing for a compulsory internet filter for pornography and other "offensive" content.
The Attorney-General's Department said the distributed denial-of-service attack, which blocked access to the sites, was launched by the group "Anonymous", which has also used hacking techniques to attack websites belonging to the Church of Scientology.I find this completely warranted and hilarious.The Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported that a statement from Anonymous said the attack was intended to protest the government's mandatory filter, particularly its blocking of certain pornography sites.
Anonymous said in an email: "No government should have the right to refuse its citizens access to information solely because they perceive it to be 'unwanted'. The Australian government will learn that one does not mess with our porn." A similar attack last September was also attributed to the group.
Good job Anon.
