Anonymous Launches Largest Attack Ever

In response to the Department of Justice taking down the popular file sharing site Megaupload Anonymous launched #OpMegaupload. On their blog anonops.blogspot.com they announced that the op was their largest attack ever, crippling government and music industry sites including the ones for the Department of Justice, Universal Music Group, RIAA and the Motion Picture Association of America.

The outrage and subsequent protests over the threat that SOPA and PIPA are to the internet have caused some members of Congress as well as some online based companies to change their stances on the controversial Acts, but the raid on Megaupload proved that the feds don’t need SOPA or PIPA in order to impose their will on the internet.

That being the case it appears Anonymous has sent a message loud and clear to the federal government and any entity for that matter that seeks to restrict the freedom of the internet.
