The Pirate Bay is currently experiencing a massive distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack, which has caused the site to remain inaccessible for the last 24 hours, reports TorrentFreak.

Members of The Pirate Bay confirmed the news with an update on their Facebook page, saying “We don’t know who’s behind it but we have our suspicions.” The group added, “We believe in the open and free Internets, where anyone can express their views. Even if we strongly disagree with them and even if they hate us. So don’t fight them using their ugly methods. DDOS and blocks are both forms of censorship.”

The suspects behind this pro-copyright maximalist attack are allegedly rogue members of anonymous, it seems whilst just anyone can call themselves anonymous the rest of us have to simply call them what they really are, media cartel supporters.

After covering The Pirate Bay Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack and Anonymous’ denial of responsibility for it, I’ve been checking the torrent site’s Facebook Page every so often. The Pirate Bay said it thought it might know who was behind the attack, so I was curious if they would post it today. They haven’t yet, but they did just post this:

    Wikileaks.org is also under attack.
    This sure is the year of the storm…
    As predicted here: https://thepiratebay.se/blog/204

I checked, and indeed Wikileaks is down for me. The site’s Twitter account sent this message out five hours ago: “WikiLeaks has been under sustained DDOS attacks over the last 72 hours. http://www.wikileaks.org is good, http://wikileaks.org is flooded.”

The Pirate Bay returns, Anonymous hater takes credit for DDoS

After being the victim of a massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack by an unknown party, The Pirate Bay has returned (and by the way, so has Wikileaks). While the torrent site has yet to reveal the details of who it believes was behind it all, it did post the following triumphant message on Facebook today:

    We’re back in full effect!
    Show your support by adding this badge to your profile picture!

The news not only follows yesterday’s revelation that a massive DDoS attack has kept The Pirate Bay down in many countries across the globe, but also the hacktivist group Anonymous’ denial of responsibility for it, which was then confirmed by The Pirate Bay. Now, an Anonymous hater has claimed he or she is behind the attack.
