Swedish Police Website Hacked

Swedish Police Website Hacked It appears that The Pirate Bay and others that were affected by the Swedish raid earlier this week are not the only people that feel upset about their actions.
Police have said that their website has been taken offline due to increased network data being pushed to their site. There is no word yet as to the amount of damage this DoS (Denial of Service) attack has caused, or how long the Swedish Police website will be down.

Good, if they're gonna dish it out.....on the subject of the greedy entertainment download police, the hubbie and I decided to download "Mallrats" an 11 year old movie that he has not seen, we could've bought the DVD for $1.99 Canadian(.25 cents US hee hee)but we didn't think anybody would care! He gets this Email from the anti-piracy squad with NBC ordering us to cease and desist downloading this gem of the cinema. Of course the file did not come down and it's not illegal to download a torrent file here(Canada, we checked with our ISP to ensure we were fine)and then left an Email and phone message for them explaining our legal standpoint, and telling them exactly what to do with their co-operative efforts to stamp out piracy, yes, it was very satisfying. These people are out of control with this crap and we want to voice our support for PirateBay.org. See you soon guys! Hope they didn't damage your servers.

a update, Warner, Sony sites hacked, p2p news / p2pnet: Looks like the Swedish police aren't the only ones to be feeling the wrath of angry surfers. Sites owned by two members of the Organized Music cartel have been defaced, says Zone-h. Hit were Sony BMG and Warner Music with sonymusic.it, sonymusicstudios.co.uk and warnermusic.com.tw as the affected sites. The mirrors of the defacements are: sonymusic.it/index.php , sonymusicstudios.co.uk , warnermusic.com.tw, says the post, and, "While writing this article, both sonymusic.it and sony musicstudios.co.uk turn out to be still defaced, whereas warnermusic.com.tw is impossible to reach". On Sony, Zone-h says it saw another defacement against the website sonymusiceurope.com 10 days ago. Both the attacks on the Sony BMG websites were by LuCky_Luke. "The attacked websites, which are on different machines, are hosted by the same provider, that is Savvis.net," says the story. "The defacer reported the breach at the CMS level. About Warner Music, the defacement was performed by a crew of defacers who come from Chile, known as 'byond hackers team'. "One year ago, the same website was attacked by the XTech Inc, a team of Mexicans and Argentineans who have been defacing for a long time," says Zone-h. "About those defacements that involved in such a short period of time both Warner and Sony, we wonder if this happened just by chance or if this is the expression of a far more complex plot. It could be interesting drawing out some focus points: let’s start from the concept that lately Major Record Companies are more and more under fire, every day we hear about anti-piracy countermeasures by the RIAA (the Recording Industry Association of America). "Some of these actions are quite questionable, as the decision to limit information exchanges by closing P2P networks, or by forbidding the use of P2P software. Then we can’t forget their conveying Trojan horses on P2P networks by pretending they were mp3 and videos, in order to punish those who downloaded materials under copyright. Last but not least, the rising of CD and DVD prices and the massive adoption of invasive DRM systems. "About that we can’t forget the last vicissitude that involved Sony BMG: the case of those root-kits installed on users’ systems without tthe user's knowledge. Did the last events start a sort of digital guerrilla against Major Companies? For sure, beyond last issues, there are older reasons: the message posted on www.warnermusic.com.tw home page : "phnx defaced you - byond crew -- f@ck capitalism", is quite clear..." There have been no reports, so far, of attacks on the other two Organized Music cartel owners, EMI and Vivendi Universal. Digg this story.

"The suit is a little odd, since P2PNet.net is a champion of peer-to-peer file-sharing, which is the same business that Kazaa is in," says The Globe & Mail.

I for one care, doesnt matter what the country's name is, maybe this will "enlighten" the authorities to how it feels to have your rights violated.

If fifty police officers were at piratebay's premises,then something stinks.Why should so many policemen be needed ? Some people have must have made the police force a very offer to have them put out so many men. The p2p people must unite to fight to win and survive.P2pcouncil has been born to unite p2p---http://forums.delphiforums.com/p2porg
