    IFPI Website Hacked, Boohoo!
    February 18, 2009

    Just a few minutes ago, the Swedish IFPI website has been hacked. The site has been taken down, and replaced with a simple, but clear message towards the IFPI.
    The text tells that it is a “declaration of war against anti-piracy and industry players behind it“.

    There is not much info who actually hacked the site but the hacker(s) are crediting Anakata, TiAMO and Brokep.

    Translation sort of... is hacked

    Question is if it helps or makes a disservice. This is what the site contains, in simple Courier font.


    Den hänsynslösa jakt som IFPI, Antipiratbyrån, Warner Bros och alla andra företag med en bricka i spelet bedrivit har nu resulterat i en rättegång där fyra oskyldiga män står åtalade för upphovsrättsintrång.

    Det här är en krigsförklaring mot antipiratindustrin och aktörerna bakom den, och vi uppmanar allmänheten till bojkott och lynchning av de ansvariga.
    IFPI är bara början. Fortsättning följer.

    Den Nya Generationen

    # credz till: anakata, TiAMO och brokep

    Which freely translated into English is:


    The ruthless hunt that IFPI, Antipiratbyrån, Warner Bros and all the other companies with a foot in the game has now resulted in a trial where four innocent men are charged for copyright infringement.

    This is a declaration of war against the antipiracy industry and the agents behind it, and we encourage the public to boycott and lynching of the responsible ones.
    IFPI is just the beginning. To be continued.

    The New Generation

    # credz to: anakata, TiAMO och brokep

    In the HTML source you find the following commented line twice:

    <!– !d.n.g! ludvig werner - monique wadsted - henrik ponten - rasmus ramstad - per sundin !d.n.g! –>

    This won’t win sympathy for the pirates, but still it’s a rather equal way of fighting back against those who run this trial at the cost of Swedish tax payers, the justice system and democracy.

    “…this is not a trial against The Pirate Bay, it’s a declaration of war on the internet!”

    //Marcin de Kaminski, 080216

    Internet slår tillbaka.

    Update 2009-02-18 20:30

    The message has been taken down by Ifpi’s web administrator and now has the following message:

    Välkommen till IFPI Svenska Gruppen
    Sidan är tillfälligt tagen ur drift

    which in English is

    Welcome to IFPI Swedish Group
    The page is temporarily taken out of service

    They ask the hackers to stop (TPB does)

    Indicating support for The Pirate Bay team, hackers have attacked several of the IFPI’s websites, defacing one of them with a message for the trial prosecution. However, Peter Sunde feels the attack is misguided and says such actions don’t help their cause. He is pleading with the hackers to stop.

    There can be no doubt. This week has seen a level of support for The Pirate Bay that has taken almost everyone by surprise. Sure, everyone knows it is the biggest BitTorrrent site and sure, the people who run it are some of the biggest characters in the scene, but the interest has been over and above what most people expected.

    Some are showing support by getting up in the middle of the night and translating the case for others. Some have been outside the court in the cold, while others have released a documentary. Many millions have been following every development online and posting words of support feverishly to blog and forum.

    A few individuals took more direct action yesterday, much to the dislike of The Pirate Bay. They attacked the website of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) in Sweden yesterday, defacing it, and leaving a message there for the trial prosecutor;

    Stop lying HÅKAN ROSWALL!:

    The ruthless hunt conducted by the IFPI, Anti-Piracy Office, Warner Bros., and all the other companies with a pawn in the game has now resulted in a trial in which four innocent men are accused of copyright infringement. This is a declaration of war against anti-piracy outfits and the industry players behind them, and we urge the public to boycott and lynch those responsible. IFPI is just the beginning. To be Continued.

    The New Generation

    When the RIAA website was hacked last year, the news was met with glee by thousands. No doubt this news will be well received too but one person who isn’t particularly happy about it - at least in the context of the court case - is Peter Sunde, aka brokep.

    “Our case is going quite well as most of you have noticed. In the light of that it feels very bad that people are hacking web sites which actually puts us in a worse light than we need to be in,” he said.

    The defacement included a note saying “To be Continued..” and Peter reports that he has heard rumors that there could be further attacks against the international page of the IFPI and the domain previously owned by Peter,

    Indeed, at the time of writing, both sites are unavailable, in addition to the Swedish site. There are no messages (possibly indicating a DDoS) but they are both down.

    While all this might be a great distraction for those who believe the music industry only gets what it deserves and deserves what it gets, Peter is calling for calm;

    “If anyone involved in the acts going on is reading this - please stop, for our sake. We don’t need that kind of support.”

    The IFPI site currently carries this message; “Welcome to the IFPI Svenska group. This page is temporarily taken out of service.”

    Stay tuned today for our coverage of the trial’s Day 4.

    Update:, .org and .com are back online.
