Blocking of File-sharing Web Sites - Malaysian Government's Websites Hacked

2:50:00 PM

Since yesterday morning, most of Malaysian Governments websites were hacked by an international hackers group; ANONYMOUS. This is a protest made by the hackers due to the blocking of 10 file-sharing web sites by SKMM to prevent illegal downloads. Anonymous warned Malaysian Government that they will hack governments official web sites starting from 15 June 2011 at 7:30 P.M under OPERATION MALAYSIA.

10 File-sharing web sites blocked by SKMM:
Well, I agree that closing of some of the web sites will help to prevent illegal downloads, but most of illegal downloads actually comes from P2P a.k.a Peer-to-Peer (download using Ares, Torrent etc.), not direct downloads (Fileserve, Filestube and Megaupload)! What the h*** SKMM thinking when deciding which sites should be blocked? I'm an avid user of Filestube and Megaupload services, so this is really inconvenience for me. 
P/S: 10 web sites blocked. Are you affected?
