(ROME) — Police in Italy have arrested four possible members of Anonymous, the global hacker group known for attacking websites of organizations that opposed the exposed WikiLeaks documents.
The suspects have been placed under house arrest, accused of targeting Italian government and parliament websites, as well as those of the Vatican.
Police say while the suspects are charged with hacking, it is not clear if they are individuals acting for their own private purposes and using the Anonymous name, or if they are really part of the Anonymous group.
