Shutting them down

The US government takes down Megaupload at the behest of the RIAA, so Anonymous is striking back:

Update: Anonymous says they’ve also knocked off the RIAA’s site—looks down for us at the moment as well.

Update 2: Universal Music Group has also fallen off an e-cliff.

Update 3: Goodbye for now,

Update 4: Affected sites are bouncing in and out of life, and are at the very least super slow to load. Anon agents are currently trying to coordinate their DDoS attacks in the same direction via IRC.

Update 5: The US Copyright Office joins the list.

It should make for some interesting reading when all the personal information concerning the various RIAA lobbyists ends up being released.
