‘Anonymous’ launch attacks following Demonoid take down

Posted at 10 August 2012 00:27 CEST by Wombler

Hacktivist group Anonymous have announced plans to retaliate for the shut down of file sharing service Demonoid.

Not long after the announcement a video appeared on YouTube calling into effect ‘operation Demonoid’ and websites belonging to the Ukrainian Anti-Piracy Association, the Ukrainian Agency for Copyright and Related Rights, and the National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council of Ukraine were all subjected to distributed denial of service attacks that successfully overwhelmed for a while.

Demonoid was taken down last week but the reasons for this only became apparent due to recent stories in local Russianewspapersrs. ISP Colocoll permitted authorities to copy data and Demonoid users are now concerned with how that data may be used. Clearly Anonymous is not happy with this situation either and wants to get its message across.

The BBC discusses this further here.

          why am I not surprised they start to loose money and go after sites that have nothing to do aka Pirate-bay...they are just making more and more enemies of sites that aren't even in the US let alone enforce US laws onto other nations? Are they so stupid and inept that they have no sovereign national standings anymore? UK should be renamed.... The sovereign territory of the US and follow all US common laws if you can bride the officials and pay them off to do your dirty work....
