Megaupload file-sharing site shut down

As most of you already now, yesterday (Thursday) Megaupload was closed by the FBI, accused of “copyright infringement”. You can read FBI’s press release here where the details of the case are explained, and you can see how each accused person in this case could face 50 years jail time.

Anonymous has of course reacted, and has started DDoS attacks against a number of different websites, among the targets we can find the Department of Justice, the RIAA, and Universal Music. Again, the best way Anonymous is able to come up with is to launch DDoS attacks. They could try to give information to the people, etc. but that is boring for them, it  is way funnier to break the law.
