Anonymous Vows Revenge for Demonoid Take-Down

After the Ukrainian Government took down the BitTorrent site Demonoid (at the request of Interpol, apparently), hacktivist group Anonymous attacked several government websites and vowed more actions in the future as a form of protest. The Kyiv Post is reporting that the web pages for the Ukrainian Anti-Piracy Association, the Ukrainian Agency for Copyright and Related Rights, and the National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council of Ukraine were unavailable for a short amount of time.

Members of Anonymous announced plans on YouTube, Twitter and other websites where they convey messages, to attack "those responsible for the interruption." They are calling these attacks "operation Demonoid engaged".

We'll have more on this story as it develops. To learn more about why the Ukrainian government took Demonoid down, check out this story from earlier in the week.

    I don't disagree with that assessment.

    But I also think that the U.S. government (most governments) are too inept to actually be able to handle script kiddies.

    I mean seriously, their heart sounds ("sounds" is the key word here) like it's in the right place but has Anonymous ever achieved anything? No, it hasn't. It's done a few forceful take-downs of "important" websites like PayPal which ultimately didn't do anything.
