After the SOPA protest, the Department of Justice issued a release stating that federal officials had taken the site down. Following this announcement, a hacking collective called Anonymous launched several attacks on government and entertainment industry websites, including those for the Justice Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Universal Music.
