Submission + - The global church under attack

I guess a high concentration of Christians is not enough to prevent attack (http://www.lausanne.org/news-releases/cyber-attack-hits-global-church-gathering.html). The 2010 Lausanne conference, the largest gathering of church leaders, had their ability to stream the conference to other centers around the world compromised by hacking. Initial suspicions are directed at China (http://www.outreachmagazine.com/blogs/lausanne/3864-Lausanne-Congress-Cyber-Attack.html), who also denied their national delegates permission to attend (http://blog.christianitytoday.com/ctliveblog/archives/2010/10/lausanne_delega.html).

Apparently two Indian IT support staff from Bangelore, managed to sort it out after two days.
