Anonymous hater hit Pirate Bay

A former member of Anonymous, who now hates the outfit and helps the feds, has claimed responsibility for an attack which downed the Pirate Bay and Wikileaks.

The “traitor”, who goes by the name AnonNyre, has claimed responsibility for the Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack that kept the site offline for days.

In a Pastebin  message, AnonNyre explains that he attacked The Pirate Bay because he was against Anonymous and does not support it any more. Apparently he also helps the FBI grass up Anonymous members.

He said that Pirate Bay was a press release website for Anonymous and so he thought by taking it down he would make life impossible for Anonymous.

” Get on your knees, Anonymous. I am a one-man army. I am not a hacker. I am a security killer,” he said.

Nyre doesn’t explain how he pulled off the feat, but the smart money is that he used a botnet of a respectable size.

Nyre might not be behind the Wikileaks attack which was also under a DDoS attack, and for much longer.
