From the article: "homes of discussion group participants have been raided and their computers seized"

From the video: Tom Cruise: "We are the authorities"

Okay, that's disturbing.

Confabulat: You know, speaking of annoying computer dorks messing with things, we Farkers could probably really fark up that poll to the right about Prime Minister Gyurcsany.

I don't know what's going on here with this Scientology flap, (my connection is too slow to play videos) but I saw a short clip on TV of Tom Cruise making his speech, with his big medal around his neck, and it was pretty scary.

Even the setting and the podium and the whole atmosphere of the room was scary.

Can't wait untill the koolaid starts making it's rounds. Drink up tommy!

I wouldn't past a T-fer or farker-light to have had some involvement in this. If yes, I'm proud of you, and if not, get the fuukkckk going and join the party! We're counting on you!

The attack is coming from another, fairly notorious board which I happen to know has many members in common with Fark besides myself...so yeah, some Farkers did have a hand in it.

Somewhat ironic that a news articles about a DoS attack can't handle the traffic.

I dont know why ebaums is getting the credit for it. Have they now started to steal credit for pulling hacks like this along with internet video and pictures?

It was /i/nsurgency splinter of anonymous. 4chan not ebaums.

This cult needs Bevets.

"Logic is the tin foil hat that sane people use to keep Xenu out of their body-thetans."

Scientology is a cult for rich people, and rich people like to take over the world. End of story. Eliminate scientology, and the rich people would still be there trying to take over the world.

The video really shows how a cult can act very much like a drug.

So manic, so empty of content in his speech.
 
2008-01-20 12:41:28 PM  
I wish one of the so called "news" networks would do another big story on the criminal organization that is Scientology. They wont, because retaliation from Scientology is such an expensive hassle, it's easier to do another story on "medical miracles!" or some other BS.

Church of Scientology website being attacked by hackers

January 20, 2008 at 10:24 am · Filed under NewsLog

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 labeled "Anonymous", on the website "Insurgency Wiki", a spinoff of 4chan. 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 a promotional video featuring Scientologist Tom Cruise from YouTube. Though YouTube is complying with the Church of Scientology's requests to take down the video, other sites such as Gawker.com have stated that they will keep hosting the video.

Writing in a blog post, Matthew Ingram of The Globe and Mail dubbed the ongoing conflict involving the Church of Scientology's attempts to remove the Cruise video from the Internet: "Scientology vs. the Internet, part XVII". He characterized the conflict between the Church of Scientology and anonymous posters of the Cruise video as "another small skirmish in a war that Scientology has been waging for almost 15 years, since the early days of newsgroups such as alt.religion.scientology, which posted internal church documents in 1994. Lawsuits have been filed, mailing lists have been shut down, homes of discussion group participants have been raided and their computers seized - an all-out war."

One poster admitted to being a part of the effort, writing in a blog post "I have myself, as per instructions, loaded up Gigaloader and started bombarding the Scientology homepage. Theres [sic] something in the hilarious anarchy of the net that produces these 'events' every now and again." The poster wrote that "Prompted I think by the Tom Cruise video, a new obsession is taking hold on the internet."

"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.

The Church's website is currently unreachable. Some individuals reported that when they are able to reach the site, all they get is a message stating, "The word scientology means search for truth...". As of 15:11 GMT the site was accessible again, but only loads at relatively slow speeds.

Posts on the message board for the Scientology-critic site Operation Clambake from Friday theorized that a denial-of-service attack had occurred, and wrote that as of Friday the Scientology.org site was either not loading at all, or loading very slowly. Critics of Scientology at the Internet newsgroup alt.religion.scientology were critical of the attacks to the Church of Scientology website, with one poster writing "How can people look at both sides if one side is gone?"

Traffic to the Scientology website had already increased 18-fold prior to the attack, following increased attention after the Tom Cruise video appeared on the Internet. At that time, one in three visits to the site came from BBC News, and the website increased to number 3 in the company Hitwise UK's Lifestyle-Religion category.

Ebaums is getting credit for it because everytime 4chan gets credit for anything, idiots flood it and the quality of the website goes down.
Speaking of which, 4chan already sucks so much thanks to the new posters it isn't even worth saving.
