PandaLabs has just published an exclusive Q&A with the leaders of the “Anonymous” group responsible for the anti-piracy motivated attacks against the Motion Picture Association of America, Recording Industry Association of America and others over the past week.

You can find the entire Q&A on the PandaLabs blog: http://pandalabs.pandasecurity.com/an-interview-with-anonymous/

The group’s spokesperson, when asked about their mission stated:

To fight back against the anti-piracy lobby. There been a massive lobbyist-provoked surge in unfair infringements of personal freedom online, lately. See the Digital Economy Bill in the UK, and “three strikes” legislation in the EU which both threaten to disconnect internet connections based on accusations supplied by the music and movie industries. In the USA, a new bill has been proposed that could allow the USA to force top level registrars such as ICANN and Nominet to shut down websites, all with NO fair trial. Guilty until proven guilty! Our tactics are inspired by the very people who provoked us, AiPlex Software. A few weeks back they admitted to attacking file sharing sites with DDoS attacks.

It’s apparent that the attacks are going to continue. The spokesperson said, “We will keep going until we stop being angry.”

I wouldn’t want to be in the IT department of the targets!
