WTF WERE YOU THINKING?! DOS TPB?

Last week an anti-piracy group Aiplex Software admited to using DOS (Denial of Service) attacks against torrent sites including The Pirate Bay to knock them off the 'net. Lawyers resorted to the most basic of hacker tricks.

People were pissed. Not just people but People. Anti-Scientology group Anonymous teamed with the notorious meme spewing community of 4chan and supporters of The Pirate Bay. Aiplex disappeared from the web even before the attack was supposed to start by supporters with itchy trigger fingers. Ready yet lacking a target the Perfect Storm of geeks turned their Death Star at the source of all this mess: MPAA.ORG

THIS IS INTERNET!

Your organization only exists so long and THE PEOPLE allow it. Well, except for the telecom industry. They kinda own the whole thing ;)

Seriously though, TPB, 4chan, and Anonymous working together? This much power, properly directed, could shut down countries. No exaggeration.

*Update: Watch me investigate. Quality Blogging! Deserving of video cards! Anyway, MPAA is back online after 18hrs and has moved to a new IP. It seems that the RIAA was also attacked. Here is a post from a member of Anon I found in the comments:

It was started 55 minutes ahead of schedule. Our main target was MPAA but later but later Anons became self aware and attacked the RIAA website too. At that point we couldn’t do anything, so we had to carry on with both sites. The massive plot was per-planned all over the world with our bot nets and anons. We are anonymous, we don’t forget, we don’t forgive. We are legion. *update 2* magin's messed up under new editor and I can't seem to fix. Anyway, not over. Round 2 begins 3PM EST aimed at the RIAA.

  1. IT'S INTERESTING THAT AIPLECKS TRIED TO GET AWAY WITH THAT. I DON'T THINK THAT THEY WERE REALLY REPRESENTING THE MIAA AND RIAA. MERELY REPRESENTATIVE OF THEIR ATTITUDES AND HACKING ABILITY.

    THEY CAN PULL A SITE DOWN, BUT CAN THEY KEEP IT DOWN INDEFINITELY?
