An anonymous reader writes “A band of cyber-attackers have taken down the Australian Parliament House website and hacked Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s website in coordinated protests against government plans to filter the Internet. The group responsible, called Anonymous, is known for coordinated Internet attacks against Scientology and other groups in the past. It recently turned its attention against the AU government after it said in December that it would block access to sites featuring material such as rape, drug use, bestiality and child sex abuse.”
