Hacktivist Group Anonymous Targeted Pope in Mexico 
After Vatican now Anonymous targeted the Mexico Pope. The hacker group in Mexico crashed at least two of the websites for Pope Benedict XVI’s upcoming visit to Mexico on Thursday, claiming the papal visit is a political move to support the conservative National Action party.
The site contained information on the pope’s planned activities starting Friday in the north-central state of Guanajuato, which is governed by President Felipe Calderon’s National Action Party, or PAN. The Anonymous IberoAmerica website, which has been a channel of communication for such hacker “ops” in the past, said the site crashes were the result of Anonymous operations with names such “Pharisee” and “freeloader.”
Anonymous Mexico said in a video posted on social media sites that the pope’s visit will cost Mexicans money that could be better spent on the poor, and is meant to support the PAN in the July 1 presidential election. PAN candidate Josefina Vazquez Mota is trailing front-runner Enrique Pena Nieto of the Institutional Revolutionary Party by at least 10 percentage points in most polls on the race. The official campaign season starts at the end of this month. The pope’s “visit comes precisely at the start of the electoral campaigns,” said the faceless Anonymous figure in the video. “The PAN will take this as a political weapon to win the votes of millions of Catholics in Mexico.”
Earlier this month Anonymous take responsibility of engaging cyber attack on Vatican official website & Vatican Radio System. The hacker group said - "This attack is not against the Christian religion or the faithful around the world but against the corrupt Roman Apostolic Church," said the statement, posted on the Italian-language version of the Anonymous website.
