Members of Anonymous and AntiSec today hit several Web sites belonging to the Federal Trade Commission.
"The hackers compromised the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection’s Business Center, along with a site promoting National Consumer Protection Week in apparent retaliation for the controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA)," writes TG Daily's Trent Nouveau.
"Both site home pages were temporarily replaced with a German-language video depicting a man in a ski mask shooting people for downloading copyrighted music," Nouveau writes. "'If ACTA is signed by all participating negotiating countries, you can rest assured that Antisec will bring a fu**ing mega-uber-awesome war that rain torrential hellfire down on all enemies of free speech, privacy and Internet freedom,' the hackers wrote in an online communiqué posted to PasteBin."
