Anonymous Czech Republic distance themselves from cyber-attack on news server Romea.cz
Reports have been spreading on Facebook that someone claiming involvement with Anonymous has launched the ongoing distributed denial-of-service attack on news server Romea.cz. News server Indymedia Česká republika reports that Anonymous Czech Republic has distanced itself from the attack.
"Why would Anonymous, who are freedom fighters, attack the Romea.cz server? It's not the point - maybe a few people dislodged that website, but it was not an official attack and Anonymous has not issued any orders for an attack on Romea.cz. We don't have anything to do with this attack. :)" wrote one activist.
Other activists have resolutely declared they have nothing to do with the attack and that they are sympathetic to the Romea.cz news server. "We greatly appreciate the declaration by Anonymous CZ and thank them for it," . Zdeněk Ryšavý, executive director of the ROMEA civic association, told news server Romea.cz.
