    re: Cyber attack: Nebraska man agrees to plea in Scientology Web attack

    A spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office in Los Angeles, says Brian T. Mettenbrink agreed to plead guilty Monday to the misdemeanor charge of unauthorized access of a protected computer. He faces a year in federal prison.

    Court records say Mettenbrink attacked Scientology Web sites as part of Anonymous, an underground group that protests the Church of Scientology, accusing it of Internet censorship. Prosecutors say hackers conducted a "denial of service" attack, in which computers flood a target Web site with malicious Internet traffic, making it unavailable to legitimate users.
