Dutch Anti-Piracy Group Suffered Another DDoS Attack

Dutch anti-piracy organization called BREIN has suffered a major DDoS attack, after which its website went offline. Since the pro-Hollywood outfit has made lots of enemies thanks to its actions in The Netherlands, the range of suspected culprits is huge. However, the outfit’s chief claims he knows who hides behind this attack.

Each outfit involved in disrupting different communities on the web should understand that it will once inevitably become a hate figure. That’s what happened to Dutch anti-piracy organization named BREIN and its boss Tim Kuik – they understandably became very unpopular within files-sharing circles. The consequences were the following: since the very beginning of the current week the group’s website has been offline because of a major DDoS attack.

Although there isn’t real evidence to prove the Kuik’s assumption, revenge is the main motive for DDoS attacks. But even considering this, the list of likely culprits would be very huge, because BREIN has taken offline a great number of websites. Unsurprisingly, any of them might want to wish the same destiny for BREIN itself.

Somehow, BREIN has certain suspicions in this case. Tim Kuik strongly believes that the attack is initiated by the FTD Usenet community taken offline by the anti-piracy group a while ago. The attack could be backed by supporters of FTD just because the timing of the closing of FTD and the start of the attack coincide. Since BREIN’s website has been logging the IPs of the attackers, it knows for sure that they originate from The Netherlands.

In response, FTD attorney said that the community was not in favour of the assault, as it realizes that the DDoS attack is not the right way to fight anti-piracy outfit. Instead, DDoS attacks will only strengthen the image that file-sharing is a criminal activity.

Although a minority of FTD fans might want to take the law into their own hands, they are still not the only ones having reason to hate anti-piracy outfit. For example, back in January, BREIN aggravated a number of warez Scene members after seizing the equipment of the Swan topsite. Last month it also failed to please Internet users, taking down nearly a dozen Usenet websites.

Actually, it’s not the first time that BREIN is suffering a DDoS attack. This time, just like before, the outfit publicly links the event to a service it had previously targeted.
