Vatican website still blocked, continued anomalous activity

Abnormal access attempts 'not coming from single country'

(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 1 - The Vatican said Thursday its website was still blocked amid a host of continued "anomalous" access attempts and strange activity.
    Vatican.va, the official portal of the Vatican, "remains temporarily inaccessible," the Holy See press office said.
    "(There are) ongoing technical investigations due to anomalous attempts to access the site".
    The portal vatican.va is still not working at full capacity and is in fact inaccessible more than 24 hours after the first recorded malfunctions, the press office said.
    "The anomalous activity continues", said the press office.
    The access attempts "are not coming from a single Country," the Vatican reports again (but it is well known that hackers can also simulate access attempts and attacks from different locations).
    The Vatican's IT staff has therefore been at work for over a day to ascertain the nature of the computer "anomaly". (ANSA).
