Vatikanski hackeri pridružili su se userima koji nisu nešto naročito zadovoljni kvalitetom informacija na Wikipediji, te su lagano izmjenili neke škakljive podatke za koje bi trebalo vrijediti zlatno pravilo Quieta non movere.
Vatican computer ‘edited Adams page’
A new internet tool shows how a Vatican computer was used to edit a web entry about Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams, American researchers have claimed.
Wikipedia Scanner developers said they could trace where changes to the online encyclopedia had been made.They said news reports alleging Mr Adams’s fingerprints and handprints were found on a car used during a double murder in 1971 were removed.
Sinn Fein said it was calling for more stringent regulation of the internet.The Wikipedia edit removed links to newspaper stories written in 2006 about Mr Adams’ fingerprints and handprints, the researchers said. And a section, titled “Fresh murder question raised”, has also been deleted from the online encyclopaedia.
The page now says it is “currently protected from editing until August 17, 2007 or until disputes have been resolved”. Experts say it may not even have been anyone at the Vatican who made the changes.Dr Kevin Curran, a computer expert at the University of Ulster, said: “Either you were using their computer and you are an employee, or you had maliciously hacked, spoofing the IP address and having people believing that you were using their network. But nine times out of 10, we can almost say that yes, an employee of that company or organisation has been making the changes.”
Pete Clifton, glavni urednik BBCa za interaktivne vijesti, tvrdi sljedeće:
“When BBC staff edit Wikipedia, they should not bring the BBC into disrepute.”
Istina, no prljavo rublje Vatikana je mrvicu veće od onoga iz BBCa…
