Technology Mob: "According to Anonymous' twitter feed they have taken down CBS' website, cbs.com. This doesn't look like a typical DDoS though; it looks like they've gained access to their servers."
What is the link to anon?
There's a couple I keep track of, main two are https://twitter.com/YourAno... and https://twitter.com/Anonymo... :)
Site is back up now
Really? This is lame. The site was only down for what? a few mins?
wow thats shorter than when they do general maintenance on the website. lame.
Lmao yea, but if they have redundant servers or offline backups, they just have to switch the IP addresses that the domain points to, and BAM, back online in 15 minutes tops.
They should have went after FOX!
Nah, they should have just done something more productive/positive with their lives/time.
" why they’ve been targeted is not immediately clear but I’m going to assume they were in favour of Megaupload being taken offline" If you've been following SOPA and PIPA lately you would know that the companies funding them are CBS, DISNEY, ESPN, MSNBC, CNET, just to name a few. The funny thing is. these are the companies who were promoting file sharing products flooding hundreds and hundreds or websites with ads to Kazaa. Morpheus, iMesh and Bearshare. and the funny thing is they are all under the same company. I don't know the ins and outs behind it all these are just facts im getting from Youtube videos and news sources
The list of SOPA/PIPA supporters is endless, not to mention all the "proxy" supporters. Besides, in the tweets they referenced Megaupload which, naturally, makes no sense.
Kinda proves how utterly useless anonymous and their attacks are . Not saying we should just bend over and accept everything ... but so far everything they've done is not only useless but counterproductive and helps their foes . Look, the FBI closes the biggest filesharing resource on the internet and sends its leaders into jail with a promise for long term sentences and astronomically high penalties, and what can the Anonymous do to retort ? They’ll keep a few dozens of websites down for a few hours , days at best ? Oh my, it’s scary, the powerful persons must be shitting their pants – or not. How much is the MPAA losing from having their useless website defaced again ?
