Anonymous strikes back at copyright advocates’ & US government’s websites

Anonymous, in retribution for the FBI’s closing of the Megaupload family of websites and the jailing of their leadership, brought down the websites of some government agencies and supporters of SOPA.  Naturally, a huge flow of news on the story resulted:   Forbes   Extremetech   CNN   Eweek   Washington Post   Slashdot   Ars Technica   CNET1 CNET2 CNET3   New Scientist   PhysOrg

What’s worse, Anon’s started circulating links on Twitter and other websites that automatically turn your computer into a DDoS spammer.  This kind of trick is not cool in my point of view, and it’s definitely illegal, but then what do you expect?  Forbes
