Guest Post , Others 0
Of late, you may see that many links from anonymous people are being poured into your inbox and you are constantly asked to click on those links. If, by mistake, you may have clicked on any one of those links, you are indirectly helping the online activists in their attack on the US government and entertainment industry websites which have been organized to protest against the proposed SOPA legislation.
These anonymous people have started denial of the service attacks which have been especially designed to shut down the websites. Supporters want the people to download a software named Low Orbit Ion Canon (LOIC). They want the computers get directed to repeatedly connect to the target website. With so many digital knocks happening on the door, a website can get shut down.
When LOIC is used, the IP address of the individual computers who are trying to access the website can gets traced quite easily. If this used, the participants can be traced and put for prosecution. But people are fearlessly downloading the software and it has been known that around 19,000 people have downloaded the LOIC till now.
The fight between the Silicon Valley and Hollywood is becoming hot with the implementation of SOPA and PIPA. If SOPA is implemented, the activities on the Internet will become much slower and hence it will be a big loss to the Silicon Valley companies like Google and Facebook. Meanwhile the Hollywood companies are fighting it hard for the SOPA act as it will put an end to the piracy of movies and songs and hence increase their turnover and business to a great extent. Hence anonymous users are coming out with a new tactic to avoid arrest of the users.
