Hacktivists Attack Australian Government Systems

A hacktivist group call "Anonymous" is claiming responsibility for Distributed Denial-of-Service attacks against government systems in Australia. The attacks are a protest against proposed filtering of Internet content by the Australian government.
"The group consists of "a few thousand people" based all over the world Coldblood said."
Coldblood is a psydonym for an individual claiming to be a spokesperson for the group. The spokesperson also claimed responsibility for other hacktivist attacks protesting other forms of censorship:
"They staged cyber attacks on Iran following the election protests and have publicly protested against the Scientology movement. "

Cyber attacks against Australia 'will continue'
