‘Anonymous’ launch attacks following Demonoid take down
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.
