Anonymous Attacks! Again!

Anonymous Attacks! Again!

The protest group Anonymous couldn’t stay quiet for long could they? Not with all the SOPA/PIPA news floating around.

Click here, here, and here to read all about Anonymous shutting down the Justice Department’s website (as well as RIAA’s, MPAA’s, and Universal Music’s) in retaliation for the feds taking down popular file-sharing site Megaupload proving that the feds don’t need SOPA or its sister legislation, PIPA, in order to pose a blow to the Web. Well, it seems like Anonymous, or “the fighers for internet freedom,” are trying to show the government just how hard a blow to the Web can really feel.

As of this writing, even FBI.Gov is down! Where will Anonymous hit next?
