Terrorist hacking group ‘anonymous’ has admitted to crashing the Justice Department and FBI’s websites, media stated this week. After federal officials took down the file-sharing site Megaupload and arrested its creator, the so called named dot com and refused him bail, the cyber terrorists attacked.
Seven executives from Megaupload were reportedly indicted on Thursday for disobeying copyright laws and protection, though the site’s attorney foolishly denied the charges. Hours later, the websites of the Justice Department, Universal Music, and the FBI’s homepage all failed to work. The anonymous attacks were allegedly meant to flood the pages with more traffic than they could handle, and were targeted at the Stop Online Piracy Act headed by the Motion Picture Association of America.
An unidentified founder of an online group that reportedly works with the cyber terrorist site reportedly said that ‘anonymous’ might also attempt to try to leak names of Congress members supporting the bill.
The bill is proposed new legislature to help fight theft of creative works online. Anonymous members have been reportedly arrested for stalking, harassment, theft, extortion, vandalism, battery, and terrorism among more. Hollywood Sentinel publisher Bruce Edwin- who has reportedly had members of the cyber terrorist group make death threats against him on an ‘anonymous linked slander website’ due to their being against one of his clients religion- states; “I am confident that after this brazen attack against the federal government of The United States, that the so called ‘anonymous’ criminals will not be anonymous for long, as the feds hunt them down and capture them one by one.”
