Hackers disable Swedish prosecutor's website

The website of the Swedish prosecutor's office pursuing Wikileaks founder Julian Assange came under cyber attack on Tuesday in the latest salvo in a campaign by online supporters who have also struck PayPal and the Swiss Post Office bank.
PandaLabs, the malware detection laboratory for computer security firm Panda Security, said the prosecutor's website, www.advbryra.se, was brought down by members of the loose "cyber hacktivist" group called "Anonymous."

The attack on the Swedish prosecutor's website came as Assange, whose release of secret US diplomatic cables has sparked an international furor, was refused bail by a British judge over allegations of sex crimes in Sweden.

As of 6.30am Wednesday morning, the prosecutor's website remained inaccessible from the massive DDOS attack.
