Scientology hacker admits guilt

A 19-year-old New Jersey man has pleaded guilty for his role in a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack that took down the website of the Church of Scientology. Dmitriy Guzner, who was charged in October, was part of an underground group named Anonymous. Guzner faces up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced Aug. 24. Anonymous has said it wanted to bring down the church site after the church tried to claim copyright infringement over the spread of edited clips from a 2004 promotional video featuring actor and well-known Scientologist Tom Cruise.
