I don't know if you've heard this, but in Sweden the APB (Anti-Piracy Beureau) currently seems to be at open war with file sharers. It's been escalating for a while, but now all hell seems to have broken loose. I guess it started when APB started to get search warrants for a few people. March 7 - A DDoS attack was launched at the homepage of APB (www.antipiratbyran.com). The DDoS was manual, i.e. people were asked to participate, and did so. APB decides to take it down for a few days, saying that "only pirates visit it anyway, so it's no big deal". APB's provider, Bahnhof Internet (www.bahnhof.se), changes the domain dns to 127.0.0.1, eliminating the problem. March 10 - APB personale and 20 people from Kronofogdemyndigheten (goverment dept collectors) raid the offices of Bahnhof after getting a search warrant in court. They seize several servers and other equipment. March 11 - APB concludes that the raid was a success and that they've taken down some of the major warez servers in Europe. None of the material the court order was based of was found, but that apparently didn't bother anyone. March 12 - Bahnhof announces that the servers in question had been marked as "unknown" in an inventory made a while back, but that the company did not have time to investigate the purpose of the servers before the raid. One of the servers was said to have "pirate stickers" on it. Two employees have been suspended. Journalists asked APB if it wasn't time to get the homepage back up. APB replied that "it might not be appropriate [to ask Bahnhof] at the moment". No ****. March 13 - The APB homepage (I assume) came back up in the evening and was hacked almost instantly byt a group called AUH (angry young hackers). AUH left a message on the site along with parts of email conversations between APB employees and "informants". One of the informants was identified by AUH and had all his personal information posted on the site. He won't be popular, I'll tell you that. AUH claims to have access to a number of systems and will continue to identify and expose informants. Well that's all so far. I can't wait to see the rest of this unfold.
