Submission + - Major Warez Forums DDOSed by the RIAA/MPAA

An anonymous reader writes: Several major warez forums have been under heavy DDOS attack by major anti-piracy organizations such as the MPAA and the RIAA. Attacks started early Tuesday night and affected:
www.warez-bb.org
www.projectw.org
www.forumw.org
ForumW was the least affected and able to stay up with little downtime, albeit slowly. Warez-BB was highly affected and went down for hours. ProjectW was also affected and goes down and up constantly. Warez-BB administrators report
"Unfortunately whichever low life that is trying to bring us down is still continuing their miserable attack. I can confirm that it is the same attack that has brought down ProjectW and slowed down ForumW, so far we've blocked over 4000 IP addresses which we believe is apart of the attack and there is still no signs of the attack stopping."
It is unknown when these attacks will stop.
