A teenager from Haslemere has been charged with a hacking attack on the parenting website Mumsnet.
David Gerrard Buchanan, 18, is facing two counts of hacking and one of impairing the operation of or hindering access to a computer.
The charges relate to various incidents of computer intrusion and damage to network profiles following attacks on systems controlled by the website Mumsnet and others between July and August 2015.
A hacker accessed some administrative functions of Mumsnet in August, redirecting the homepage to a now suspended Twitter profile page and editing posts on the parenting site.
Mumsnet also suffered a distributed denial of service attack, where the site is taken down by being overwhelmed with online traffic.
Buchanan is due to appear at Guildford Magistrates' Court on June 7.
