Anonymous takes down Virgin Media web site
Anonymous has reportedly knocked the Virgin Media web site offline in what's believed to be retaliation against the network's blocking of The Pirate Bay.
Virgin Media was the first UK internet service provider (ISP) to block access to The Pirate Bay after a court order was issued at the end of April, in a move that led to an outcry among digital activists claiming the order represented the next stage of internet censorship.
Writing on the @AnonymousUK Twitter account, the group claimed to have taken down the web site. Virgin Media confirmed that its web site had been hit by an attack and is offline as a result, and that Anonymous was claiming credit for the attack.
