Hackers attack Czech IFPI branch


The web page of the Czech branch of the IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry) was this morning attacked by unknown hackers who damaged its operation, head of the Czech IFPI Petra Zikovska has told CTK.

Zikovska said the attack was likely to be connected with the ACTA anti-counterfeiting treaty. After the attack, the web page www.ifpi.cz had a modified form and was not fully operational, Zikovska said.

Besides, the Anonymous hackers' group published the data base of Czech IFPI clients on the Internet this evening. "I can confirm that our web page was for the second time attacked by hackers. It happened for the first time when we published our position on the ACTA," Zikovska said. Anonymous said in its statement yesterday that Zikovska "is misleading the wide public with inaccurate, erroneous and false information on the ACTA and the phonographic industry in general."
