The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) fell victim to the wrath of 4chan members this weekend. A series of coordinated DDoS attacks against the media trade groups' websites temporarily brought them to their knees.
4chan is the well known source of many popular internet memes - including "Rickrolling"and "lolcats." But users of the public image board and internet discussion forum have also been accused of launching website attacks against many popular sites, including YouTube and Twitter.This latest string of attacks is reportedly in retaliation for DDoS attacks launched against file-sharing site "The Pirate Bay" by Indian-based software firm Aiplex Software, at the behest of the MPAA and RIAA.

Ha ha! I know some people who regularly visit 4chan. The only things that they do with their free time is go to 4chan, play video games, and sleep.

I think sometimes the things they do can be pretty hilarious, like when they skewed the Justin Bieber poll to send him to North Korea.

Honestly a proper kick in the backside for the MPAA and RIAA has been a long time coming.
