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.

Teenage hacker admits Scientology cyber-attack

The Age, from Australia, is talking about Dmitriy Guzner today.  They wrote: “A teenager hacker has admitted carrying out a cyber attack that crashed Church of Scientology websites as part of a campaign by a mysterious underground group, justice officials said Friday.

“Dmitriy Guzner, 18, of New Jersey will plead guilty to computer hacking for his role in launching a distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack against Scientology websites in January this year.”

This mysterious group of cyber-terrorists are known as “Anonymous.”

Mahalo re Dmitriy Guzner

I just found an interesting website concerning the Anonymous cyber-terrorist Dmitriy Guzner.  You can find it at http://www.mahalo.com/Dmitriy_Guzner.

On the site, it states: “Dmitriy Guzner was charged on October 17, 2008, with hacking the website of the Church of Scientology in March 2008. Guzner has said he is a member of the group Anonymous, which has coordinated several hacker attacks on the Scientology website and other sites.”

It appears to lay out the facts pretty well and seems to get updated often too.
