MegaUpload taken down by FBI for Copyright Infringement, Anonymous Strikes Back & Threatens FBI

As I am typing this article, the hacker group Anonymous has taken down yet another government site, in response to the take down of MegaUpload, the largest file sharing site, by the FBI for copyright infringement issues & arrested 7 members.


Anonymous

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) has not even been passed & look what’s happened. Anonymous stood up against this by attacking & completely taking down top government sites & SOPA supporters like

1. Justice.gov
2. Universalmusic.com
3. RIAA.org
4. MPAA.org
5. Copyright.gov
6. Hadopi.fr
7. Utahchiefs.org
8. DOJ.gov
9. BGI.com
10. BMI.com
11. WMG.com
12. FBI.gov

We will keep on updating this list as Anonymous brings down more & more sites in response to the MegaUpload take down.  Now imagine what happens after SOPA is passed!!

Anonymous claims it to be the largest attack ever, with over 5,635 People Confirmed Using LOIC to Bring Down websites.

PS: Anonymous has given this Operation the Twitter Handle: #OpMegaupload
