“ANONYMOUS” ATTACKER OF THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY GIVEN A ONE-YEAR STAY AWAY ORDER

 


Gregg Housh

 
BOSTON – A Woburn, Massachusetts man (Gregg Housh) was ordered to stay away from the Church of Scientology of Boston for one year after admitting he disrupted religious services there in February 2008.

In the Boston Municipal Court, Gregg Housh, 32, admitted to facts sufficient to warrant a finding of guilt on charges of disturbing the peace and disturbing religious services for leading a February 10, 2008 disturbance at the Boston Church of Scientology.  Housh’s case was continued for one year, the terms of which include a court order to stay away from the Church of Scientology of Boston’s locations in the Back Bay and the South End.  

Housh is the self-proclaimed leader of the Boston cell of an underground cyber-terrorist group called Anonymous.  He is the second member of Anonymous to face criminal charges in the past week for acts committed against a Scientology Church.  On Friday October 17th, The U.S. Department of Justice announced the filing of federal criminal charges against New Jersey Anonymous member Dmitriy Guzner related to the January, 2008 attempted destruction of websites owned by the Church of Scientology.  Guzner has agreed to plead guilty to felony charges that could send him to prison for ten years.

At the October 21 hearing, Boston Municipal Court Judge Thomas C. Horgan warned Housh that if he violates any of the terms of his probation he could face one year in the House of Correction.

Scientology: Los Angeles Superior Court Issues Restraining Order Against Member Of Anonymous

A Los Angeles Superior Court Judge on Friday, October 24, 2008, issued a restraining order against Donald Myers, a member of a cyber-terrorist group known as Anonymous. The order requires Myers to stay at least 50 yards away from a female Scientologist he stalked and harassed. The order also requires Myers to stay away from the L. Ron Hubbard Life Exhibition at the Church of Scientology International building in Hollywood where the victim works, and stay 50 yards away from the woman’s home. The restraining order lasts for 3 years unless renewed.

Myers was found to have engaged in acts of harassment against the young woman, after video evidence was submitted to the court showing Myers stalking her, taunting her with sexual slurs, and refusing repeated requests to leave her alone. Myers was also ordered by the court to turn over any firearms in his possession to the police.

This is the second restraining order issued against a member of Anonymous this week. On October 21, a Boston Court ordered self-styled Anonymous leader Gregg Housh to stay 100 yards away from the Boston Church of Scientology. Housh was placed on probation for one year with the threat from the Court that if he violates the restraining order or any other law, he faces a year in prison. 

Anonymous has been implicated in numerous criminal acts, including bomb threats, death threats, vandalism and computer crimes which are being investigated by law enforcement.

On October 17, The U.S. Department of Justice filed federal criminal charges against New Jersey Anonymous member Dmitriy Guzner related to the January 2008 attempted destruction of websites owned by the Church of Scientology. Guzner has agreed to plead guilty to felony charges that could send him to prison for ten years.

In November 2007, Anonymous member Pekka-Eric Auvinen shot and killed seven students, a nurse and a teacher at Jokela High School in Finland before turning the gun on himself and taking his own life. Prior to these acts Auvinen stated on a website used by Anonymous that he would do this all “in the name of Anonymous.” He was immediately encouraged to carry out his threats by other members of the group, who afterwards called him a “hero.” 

“Law enforcement and the courts are seeing through the false image that the cyber-terrorist group Anonymous tries to portray to the media and are sending a clear message to everyone – if Anonymous breaks the law, Anonymous will suffer the legal consequences” said Karin Pouw of the Church of Scientology International. She also said that “the Church will never be intimidated by the criminal acts committed by Anonymous members and will continue to work with law enforcement to bring the perpetrators of these crimes to justice for the protection of the Church and all groups targeted by these terrorists.”

Anonymous Hacker Admits Scientology Cyber-Attack

France24.com is running the story about the Anonymous Cyber-Terrorist, Dmitriy Guzner, who was criminally charged on October 17th for his DDoS’ing activities against the Church of Scientology‘s websites.  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.”

That group is Anonymous.  You can find out more about them at http://www.anonymous-exposed.org.

Anonymous Hacker Charged for DDoS Attack on Scientology

Vnunet.com is reporting: “Dmitriy Guzner, 18, of Verona, New Jersey, is charged with helping in the attack on Scientologist servers in January. He has agreed to plead guilty to a single felony charge of unauthorized impairment of a protected computer and pay $37,500 in damages.”

NJ teen charged with hacking Scientology Web sites

Seems like the San Jose Mercury News has discovered too that a New Jersey man named Dmitriy Guzner was involved in DDoS’ing the Church of Scientology’s servers back in January. 

The article states: “The U.S. attorney’s office said Friday that Dmitriy Guzner claims to be a member of an Internet-based group called “Anonymous,” which leads protests against the Church of Scientology for allegedly trying to silence its critics through lawsuits.”  

I don’t know how many cyber-terrorists attend protests, and I don’t know if Guzner was one of them, but this is quite likely.  One person who seems to know the ways of Anonymous said: “Anonymous is a group of mostly college-type kids who are involved in cyber crimes, online pornography and have an anarchistic view towards religion.”

The Church of Scientology initially responded to Anonymous months ago by distributing a documentary exposing the crimes of Anonymous. Looks like now some of them are now getting caught.

NEW JERSEY MAN CHARGED WITH ATTACKING CHURCH OF
SCIENTOLOGY WEBSITES IN THE NAME OF ‘ANONYMOUS’

LOS ANGELES – A New Jersey man was charged today for his role in an attack on Church of Scientology websites in January 2008 that rendered the websites unavailable.

Dmitriy Guzner, 18, of Verona, New Jersey, has agreed to plead guilty to computer hacking for his role in the distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack against the Scientology websites. A DDOS attack occurs where a large amount of malicious Internet traffic is directed at a website or a set of websites. The target websites are unable to handle the high volume of Internet traffic and therefore become unavailable to legitimate users trying to reach the sites.

According to the criminal information filed in United States District Court in Los Angeles, Guzner participated in the attack because he considered himself a member of an underground group called “Anonymous.” “Anonymous” has led protests against the Church of Scientology at various locations across the country, and in January 2008 posted a video on YouTube which announced a new offensive against Scientology.

Once he pleads guilty, which is expected to take place in the coming weeks in federal court in New Jersey, Guzner faces up to 10 years in federal prison.

This case was investigated by the United States Secret Service Electronic Crimes Task Force in Los Angeles. The agencies involved in the investigation were the United States Secret Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigation.
