Anonymous takes the RIAA to town

The online hacker collective known only as Anonymous has taken the fight to the Recording Industry Association of America. Following a series of denial-of-service attacks that put the Motion Picture Association Of America's website out of commission, the anti anti-piracy activists used all the tricks up their cyber-sleeve to crash RIAA.com and RIAA.org, at least temporarily.

Previous opponents of Anonymous have been the Church of Scientology and the Islamic Republic of Iran.

UPDATE: As of publication, both RIAA.com and RIAA.org are back online.
