So, I saw this on a Dutch news site, and looked up an English article just for you guys. It looks like they're taking another step towards criminality. They call it 'Operation Payback'. Basically they flood sites of music/film conpanies with page requests (DDoS or something) causing it to crash. They're getting worse every day...

Those pesky 4chan...ers!

I never liked 4chan, I've been told I'd suit it though


I heard that they tried to blow up a school once, could be wrong
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

Don't dress as a whore, he'll thump you.

Sean-Paul Correll of Panda Security described the action as "the future of cyber protests".

I found this to be the most interesting quote in the article.

Although I would go as far as saying it might be the future of protests in general. Picketing doesn't seem to do much these days. DDoS attacks seem to be getting the message through lately.

I'm sorry, but I think their antics are hilarious. They flood youtube with porn and everything haha.

It's not really protesting though, more like a cyber attack on a business. I don't think it's a good 'protest', it will likely have many negative consequences.

As far as I can tell, there aren't too many ways for them to retaliate, though. Anon seems to be covering their asses rather well with this. It's not like they can punish anyone if they can't catch anyone, right?

I know, but i find it irritating how everyone here claims to dislike 4chan even though we're basically looked at as the 4chan of guitar forums.

And every meme you see posted here is more than likley from /b/

You're acting as if the pit is some how a nest of insightful threads and amazing banter. In reality most places on the internet have discussion like that of /b/ except it's abit more moderated (so abit less spam and probably no pr0n)

This 'attack' was them doing the exact thing that the companies themselves did to torrent sites. The sites that were attacked got exactly what they deserved.

If UG wasn't so heavily modded, it would be virtually identical to 4chan. All the humour threads on here are just stolen from there. The 'Leo strut' for instance.

I actually agree with what they are doing.
Aiplex was the first to Ddos.
They are just doing it back. Its simple.

Well if they weren't such stingey dicks and actually bought music, films and software, they wouldn't have this problem. Arseholes.

These sites were stopping people from illegally downloading stuff that people are meant to pay for. How did they deserve it? That's like suing a security guard for doing his job as he's meant to.

Really? That's it, /b/? No huge database hacks or anything? Just DDoS overload? No penises on every office computer screen?

I'm actually kind of proud. The usual shenanigans were passed over in favor of something that was relatively smart and not childish. Especially because it was a "fire to fight fire" deal.

/b/ actually gets a for this one.

My theory is, the only reason 4chan still exists is so that the FBI can meticulously collect the names and addresses of everyone who uses it.

One day that list will be complete, and there'll be a second, even bigger camp set up at Guantanamo

Legal/illegal is not the same as right/wrong.

Some people think it's wrong that we have to pay such high prices for music, despite the fact that the artist gets next to nothing for each sale. It's just greed. I for one refuse to be bullied into lining the pockets of rich executives who don't even care about music.
