Submission + - Annonymous targets Irish websites over SOPA (thejournal.ie)

Intrepid imaginaut writes: "It appears that anonymous has launched a widespread DDOS attack on numerous Irish government websites in the past few hours, taking down justice.ie and finance.gov.ie in an effort to attract attention to a piece of SOPA-like legislation that is being rushed through by Sean Sherlock. A Twitter account affiliated to the Swedish arm of Anonymous said the timing of the attack, when the websites would not be in heavy demand, was a “wake up – warning shot”."
