Vatican: Anonymous hacked us again

But it was just an old server with lots of outdated information that Anonymous hit, the Vatican says.

The Vatican has confirmed a second attack against its Web site by the Anonymous hacking group, and an infiltration of its radio database.

"There was a second attack we are aware of directed against the [Vatican IP] address," said a Vatican spokesman today. "[Concerning] Vatican Radio, a database on an old server was accessed. Thirty percent of the information on the server was so outdated it was of no use."

Anonymous claimed to have hacked Vatican Radio in protest against the Vatican Radio allegedly using "repeaters with power transmission largely outside the bounds of the law" in a Pastebin post yesterday.
