Anonymous attack on Children’s Hospital continues

Boston Children’s Hospital continued to be hit with a cyberattack Friday, even as a split emerged among members of the loose collective known as Anonymous over targeting the medical institution for its role in the controversial Justina Pelletier custody case.

Some members of the hacker network claimed credit on Friday for the attacks on Children’s website in retaliation for the hospital bringing medical child abuse charges against Pelletier’s parents. One of those members said on a Twitter account Friday that the strikes against Children’s would subside.
