Operation MegaUpload launched by Anonymous GroupIn Blog
A new era has begun with Operation MegaUpload.
“We Anonymous are launching our largest attack ever on government and music industry sites. Lulz. The FBI didn’t think they would get away with this did they? They should have expected us.” Anonymous brought down the DoJ’s website, and a number of other sites including: justice.gov, universalmusic.com, riaa.org, mpaa.org, copyright.gov, hadopi.fr, wmg.com, bmi.com and fbi.gov and plan to raid on Sony.
The fact that the government and other firms were so easily breeched is likely to set alarm bells out across the world, particularly amongst corporate companies that supported SOPA publicly at any point.
A video published to YouTube — “Don’t Mess With Us” — heralds the action as the beginning of “a new era”, explaining that “this is a time of action, as a nation we might come together and fight the tyrants”.
