Hackers attack website of court that jailed Pussy Riot

Moscow: Computer hackers Tuesday attacked the website of a Moscow court that sentenced three members of the anti-Putin punk rock band Pussy Riot, RIA Novosti reported.

The hackers posted a message calling for the release of the three members of the Russian punk band who were jailed for two years each last week, over a February protest in Moscow`s largest cathedral.

The attackers of the website of the Khamovnichesky Court also posted a music video with homosexual content by Bulgarian pop-folk singer Azis.

Visitors to the site were greeted Tuesday with Pussy Riot`s new single, "Putin Ignites the Fires of Revolution", which has been posted on YouTube.

The hackers also renamed some of the sections on the website - including the Press Service and Legal Community - with epitaphs loaded with expletives.
