4chan User Group “Anonymous” Launches DDoS Attacks

Members of the 4chan user group "Anonymous" and others executed successful attacks last weekend that crashed the websites run by the Motion Picture Association of America and the Indian tech firm Aiplex, in response to anti-piracy measures taken by both organizations.

The Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, organized in the NY-based image board, overwhelmed the websites with requests that would be harmless in lower numbers or coming from just one source.
