So as an engineering student I've been pretty busy lately but this newest article is just too big to pass up. It seems a group of hackers were payed, or at least organized into forming what is being called on of the most advanced hacks ever done. the hack labed Stuxnet was aimed at taking down industrial facilties in Iran by controling the firmware in machines, Including sites where Iran is currently doing work on nuclear weapons and nuclear power. Although the people behind the worm have yet to be revealed I'm pretty sure that I'm not the only one who wishes that they succeeded.
Also you have to read between the lines a little as to how bad Iran was actually hit because they are currently denying everything.

BBC - Piracy and the MPAA and RIAA DDoS attacks

In retaliation to attacks on behalf of the MPAA by an Indian software firm, Aiplex, users of the popular torrent site The Pirate Bay fired back against the MPAA, RIAA and Aiplex itself with the use of Low Orbit Ion cannons to DDoS the websites of these parties.
Although I'm sure that we can all agree that such action has only ever been a hammers throw away from happening after all the suits and other action taken against the community by these very organizations.
