Antipiratbyrån is off the Internet

First of all, the reason for the ~24 hours worth of inactivity is that I had to go babysit my little brother at his house. They don't have an Internet connection. So, the good part is I'm back, and bad part is that I never want to hear about Tony Hawk 3 again. Ok, enough of that.

Antipiratbyrån is now off the Internet. There have been ddos attacks against their site. They started by just removing all the pictures, but that didn't cut it. They took their own server offline in order to deny the attackers the satisfaction of succeeding.

According to Expressen.se, Henrik Pontén had this to say:
- We shut it down. Things are a bit lively on the Internet right now, so we thought that was a good move.

ddos attacks have also been noted against the website of the Swedish police. which, of course, is very unfortunate. It should be noted these attacks are not supported by any official organisation.
