Hacker group "Anonymous" takes down US Department of Justice

http://rt.com/usa/news/anonymous-doj...rsal-sopa-235/

Quote:
After a Department of Justice-executed raid today on the file sharing site Megaupload, hackers aligned with the online collective Anonymous have shut down the websites for both the DoJ and Universal Music Group, the largest record company in America.

Both universalmusic.com and justice.gov went down on Thursday afternoon, less than hours after it was revealed that Megaupload had been brought down by federal authorities and four people linked to the site, all outside of America, were arrested and charged with a conspiracy related to copyright infringement.

“It was in retaliation for Megaupload, as was the concurrent attack on Justice.gov,” Anonymous operative Barrett Brown tells RT on Thursday afternoon.

Brown adds that “more is coming” and Anonymous-aligned hacktivists are pursuing a joint effort with others to “ damage campaign raising abilities of remaining Democrats who support SOPA.”

Attacks on government or business websites oriented towards disseminating public information are rather foolish. The websites are not really any different, nor any better secured, then most other non-commercial public-oriented websites around the country (blogs, vanity sites, etc). Certainly no sensitive or irreplaceable data is stored on the sites. In the end, the websites impacted will be deleted, restored from backups, and back online in minutes - nothing more than a minor nuisance.
