The Hunters are Hunted: 4Chan Hit by DDoS Attack
By on December 28th, 2010

4Chan the manga board site and home to the infamous "Anonymous" group has been hit by a DDoS attack on their site, 4Chan.org site is now down and inaccessible.

4Chan’s Anon group who had attacked MasterCard, Visa and PayPal among others to retaliate against the controversy are now themselves down.

The status site of 4Chan has a message put up, which is interestingly funny:

Site is down due to DDoS. We now join the ranks of MasterCard, Visa, PayPal, et al.—an exclusive club!

There is no indication where this DDoS is coming from, but this is not the first time that 4Chan has been DDoSed. Earlier last month, 4Chan and users got into an virtual fight where both groups DDoSed each other and bought both the sites down. However, there is no indication whether this DDoS on 4Chan is coming from Tumblr users.

We’ll keep you updated when more information about this attack becomes available.
