Piracy 1

littlekorea (1656839) writes "Anonymous attackers have taken aim at Australia's anti-piracy lobby, AFACT today, in a concerted 12-hour effort. Some 8,000 other Australian websites using the same web host were taken out in the process. The AFACT site resumed service after several hours of downtime. Similar attacks have been leveled at anti-piracy groups such as the MPAA and RIAA."
