4chan Take Down Anti-Piracy Groups

In very coordinated and anonymous attacks, members of 4chan carried out a surgical strikes on two anti-pirating sites on the internet. The DDoS attacks targeted Aiplex Software and MPAA , two well known anti-pirating groups.

Yesterday two new targets hit the radars of ‘Anonymous’, the faceless and powerful hoards who carry out 4chan attacks. The beauty is that anyone can join in the action, 4chan ‘membership’ is not even required. People wishing to participate can simply load up their Low Orbit Ion Cannon (LOIC) and enter the IP address they want to attack. The resulting assaults are massively distributed making defending against them almost impossible.
