Anti-Piracy Groups Suffered DDoS Attacks

Many major anti-piracy outfits, including the RIAA, MPAA and BPI have already become targets of organized DDoS attacks. In addition, a new website was targeted last evening in another DDoS attack. ACS:Law, the British law firm hated by many, was attacked as well. Their website was taken offline couple days ago and since then keeps recovering and falling again. The “Operation Payback” gains momentum.

Last weekend the sites of the RIAA and MPAA saw the 4chan coordinated DDoS attacks launched by people tired of countless anti-piracy actions and trying to attract worldwide attention. While the entertaining industry was targeted over the weekend, in fact the attacks started on Friday. The first target was anti-piracy firm AiPlex Software, earlier boasting about carrying out similar attacks against incompliant BitTorrent websites. The irony is that their website proved not difficult to take down.

After those two, the third attack was carried out against the British BPI, though it was unsuccessful, and finally another wave of assaults was started. A new target was the infamous anti-piracy law firm ACS:Law, sending out thousands of notifications, asking for cash settlements from many innocent users. Considering the way they do their work, it wasn’t a surprise for anyone that ACS:Law became another target. Their website was effortlessly taken down couple days ago and keeps bouncing up and down.

All the assaults were coordinated through the IRC channel. When they were preparing to attack the MPAA, the channel saw the highest number of troops ever. Nevertheless, the targeted website remained online, proving its DDoS protection.

The organizers explained that the target for the latest attack was voted on among the admins of the “Operation Payback”. Once the results were announced, the site went down immediately.

The results of the operation are the following: although an attack against the BPI slowed their servers, it nonetheless failed to take it down. The reason was that the IRC channel people used to coordinate the attack was hacked, thus depriving them of the means of communication. That was not an isolated event – at least 3 of the group’s IRC servers have been hacked.

Meanwhile, the website of the ACS:Law has been keeping recovering and being taken down again, featuring the sign “Account Suspended” only.
