BMI taken out by Anonymous

Payback is a bitch

The essential guide to IT transformation

Hacktivists affiliated to Anonymous have taken out the website of Broadcast Music Incorporated in a protest against its stance against file-sharing.

The denial of service attack against the US-based performing rights society began late on Wednesday and remains ongoing, leaving its main bmi.com site difficult to access.

Anonymous claimed responsibility for the attack via a notice on a news site used by the loosely-knit 4Chan-spawned hacking collective.

The attack on an entertainment industry website represents a return to the type of attacks that were commonplace last year before the group turned its intention towards financial service firms that severed links with WikiLeaks and others seen as opposed to the whistle-blowing website. ®
