Anonymous Strikes Again — Takes Out FBI Main Site in Response to Megaupload Raid

Anonymous strikes again...hack attack!

File sharing service Megaupload was raided by the FBI, leading to more than 20 warrants being executed and seven arrests worldwide. The clandestine group of “hacktivists” known only as Anonymous took little time to respond. The term hacktivists is a new word entering the internet vernacular referring to computer hackers that use their skills to hack into sites as a form of protest. In response to the federal raids of Megaupload, Anonymous launched a huge assault on prominent government websites, as well as some primary mover and shakers in the entertainment industry.

The U.S. Department of Justice website was rendered useless in minutes by the expert hacking of Anonymous. This was followed by the Universal Music Group. The U.S. Copyright Office, Warner Music, BMI, and the RIAA websites proved to be more of a challenge, but all eventually succumbed to the hack attack. At 6:40 P.M. Central Standard Time, the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s flagship site, fbi.gov, fell as well, completing the attack. So far, WhiteHouse.gov has managed to thwart hacking attempts, but it is only a matter of time before it falls as well.

Inside sources of Anonymous have said that attacks such as this will be more common, especially in the wake of the attempts to pass the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act.

  1. Hello. People of the internet. We are Anonymous.

    For years we have watched the trusted Dutch police force lie to its citizens and mislead them with campaigns of misinformation.

    Their suppression of the truth, their corrupt nature, all these things have caught our eye.

    Anonymous has decided that this will not stand. We will not tolerate the way in which they have discarded the truth.

    This is why we begun Operation Siren: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvVrkHhN3YU&feature=related

    We have released several secretly recorded phone conversations between corrupt police officers and criminals. Conversations that have never been released to the public.

    We are doing this for the good of those you have trusted, for your own good, for the good of all, and for our own enjoyment.

    Go to every IRC network, every social network, every online community. Tell them of the corruption that has been discovered. If this is not enough, the Dutch police shall see that we are truly legion. We shall come together as one force, opposing this attempt to censor the truth once again, and in the process discourage any other police force from continuing or trying.

Divided by zero.
We do not forgive Corruption. 
We do not forget Oppression.
