Hacking

Anonymous Attacks Mexican Websites

The hacking group Anonymous crashed at least two websites in Mexico on Thursday, in protest of Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to the country. The two sites contained information about the pope’s visit to the state of Guanajuato. In a video posted on a social media website, Anonymous Mexico explained that the visit would be used to get votes for President Felipe Calderón’s National Action Party (PAN) in the upcoming election. “The PAN will take this as a political weapon to win the votes of millions of Catholics in Mexico,” the video said.
