FBI goes to war with the Internet

HACKTAVIST group Anonymous have compiled and published a dossier containing personal information about employees of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and US Democratic party leaders and their families.

The hacking group released a document on file-sharing site Pastebin.com listing the websites they planned  to attack along with the names of US Democratic Party leaders and MPAA employees and their families.

The details included property values,  work and home phone numbers and addresses as well as the names, ages and schools of the member's children.

The group - who go by @YourAnonNews on Twitter - took credit for shutting down the Bureau's official website FBI.gov earlier today, which as of 4.25pm AEST continues to display an error message.
