Kiss Frontman Targeted with DDoS Attacks

Kiss Frontman Targeted with DDoS Attacks

The website of the Kiss frontman, GeneSimmons.com, has come under numerous DDoS attacks. Besides, recently it has got an apparent redirection to the world’s largest pirate tracker – The Pirate Bay. In his turn, Gene Simmons threatened those liable for this to end up as somebody’s “new girlfriend” in jail.


A few weeks ago Kiss frontman voiced his anger that the entertainment industry fails to sue every college kid downloading music illegally for many years. The announcement made many rightly critical of this position. Some of those “many” even turned their criticism into action. For example, the group known as Anonymous targeted the frontman’s website GeneSimmons.com with an organized DDoS attack, which has put the website largely offline. However, a few days ago the site went back on long enough for the visitors to see a post appeared on the website, where Simmons himself has threatened the Anonymous group that took the responsibility for the affair. There Kiss frontman threatened all the hackers that they would be found by their legal team and the FBI, sued and end up in prison, next to someone looking for a “new girlfriend”.

It doesn’t seem to be a very adult-like response to threaten “adventurous guys” with making them someone’s “new girlfriend” in jail. However, it corresponds to Kiss frontman’s penchant for the dramatic. One may remember that he was the one who accused Radiohead of being on crack when they allowed their music fans to pay whatever they wanted for their new album.

The DDoS attacks on Gene Simmons were a part of an Anonymous groups’ effort called “Operation Payback,” which represents an organized protest against the reign of extreme pro-copyright outfits for the music and movie industries. The efforts also included actions that led to redirecting traffic from Gene Simmons’s websites to The Pirate Bay. As for now, the websites went offline again.

Many critics also agree with “Operation Payback” to some extent. In fact, the majority of the digital citizens believes that something needs to be done in order to fight back against pro-copyright organizations and watchdogs. Nevertheless, DDoS attacks might not be a very good way to achieve the result, as it would only add credibility to the argument for stricter copyright enforcement legislation aimed at fighting entities like Anonymous group.

CaptCosmo avatarGood work!! Gene, more of us are upset & fed-up than you realize. Your wealth is clouding your thinking. The public (read:YOUR FANBASE) is tired of supporting the GREEDY & wealthy industry between the artist and their fans. If you are the business man that you claim to be, why aren't you trying to position yourself in a business model that isn't "Doomed". Seems to me that you are the one on crack. I for one am not "into" your music or your lifestyle. BUT, if I were, you can be sure that I would do everything I could to make sure you never got a single penny from me. Your wealth doesn't keep you off my "WHITE TRASH" list. To anyone connected to Gene or Kiss - if you happen to read this, you should go have sex with yourself now!

menahunie avatarGene Simmons (born August 25, 1949) is an Israeli-American rock bassist, vocalist, musician, actor, and businessman. He is well known as "The Demon", and played for the band Kiss!
The times he's been in jail would most likely be him who'll be someones girlfriend and by the time he gets out the next time; he'll be wearing a tube top and high heels..

fusseltier avatarhe is just a greedy old ---. he has forgotten what it was like to be young and an average person, and lives in a fantasy world. all he thinks about is money and making more money and has no feelings for anyone or anything else.
he should have retired while KISS was still having some integrity before he ruins it all and makes everyone hate them.
