Anonymous Takes Down FBI, RIAA, DOJ and White House Following Megaupload Closure

In a hastily assembled retaliation against the federal shutdown of MegaUpload.com, hacktivist group Anonymous has allegedly taken down a number of websites--including those of the U.S. Department of Justice, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), and the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
According to DownForEveryoneOrJustMe.com, several websites are out of commission as of this writing, likely thanks to DDoS attacks: the U.S. Department of Justice (doj.govjustice.gov), the U.S. Copyright OfficeUniversal Music Group, the RIAA, and theMPAA.
