The United States Attorney charges:

Between January 17, 2008, and January 18, 2008, in Los Angeles County, within the Central District of California, and elsewhere, defendant DMITRIY GUZNER knowingly caused the transmission of information, codes, and commands, and as a result of such conduct, intentionally and without authorization caused damage by impairing the integrity and availability of data, a program, a system, and information on a computer system that was used in interstate and foreign commerce and communications, specifically websites belonging to the Church of Scientology, thereby causing loss to one or more persons aggregating at least $5,000 in value during a one-year period beginning January 17, 2008. Defendant DMITRY GUZNER engaged in the above-described distributed denial of service (“DDOS”) attack against the Church of Scientology websites, contributing to the unavailability of the websites, because he believed the attack furthered the goals of the anti-Scientology group “Anonymous,” of which he considered himself a member.
