Websites for the Parliament of Australia and the homepage of the government are still feeling the effects of Operation Titstorm, as it continues throughout the day. Both sites, at the time of writing, are still down as a group linked with Anonymous – an internet group that is famous of starting a campaign against the Church of Scientology.
Other government websites taken down include ACMA, and the website for the Defence Signals Directorate intelligence agency. We are also hearing reports that the Minister for the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy’s website – Senator Stephen Conroy – has also been taken down.
The attacks are using the common technique of DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks to jam web traffic.
Anonymous is currently attacking the Australian Government after their plans of internet filtering.
