Ministry of Sound website hacked

Hackers, Anonymous have carried out an attack on Ministry of Sound using a technique called DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service).
The technique gets multiple thousands of users to ‘ping’ the Ministry of Sound website in an attempt to make it crash in response to the London Club & Record Label threatening court action to illegal file sharers.
The website as well as their Legal representative’s site were affected for a few days!

Since then, some UK ISP’s are refusing to hand over user details of over 5’000 subscribers alleged to be illegally file sharing after data was leaked by ACS:Law two weeks ago.
