File-sharing website The Pirate Bay has been hit by a Distributed Denial of Service attack. The Bay confirmed the attack on its Facebook page, saying that it did not know who was behind it, although it “had its suspicions”.
A provider of DDoS defence systems said that it was unlikely that the attack came from hacking group Anonymous.
Andre Stewart of Corero Network Security told the BBC; “It could be the record labels, or a government somewhere that has had enough of not being able to catch The Pirate Bay, it could be just one person who had rented some cloud power from Amazon and is sitting in a cafe, and is able to launch an attack.”
Although some users may have attempted to access the site using proxies, TPB itself warned them against doing so.
