Harry Potter and the DDoS of Destiny
Torrent Freak under attack for simply saying leak exists
P2P news website Torrent Freak
says they're under a DDoS attack, possibly from legions of Harry Potter fans upset that they recently penned an article
exploring how the latest book in the series is now available on most BitTorrent networks.
The group notes that the attack is more likely the work of anti-piracy industry organizations (though they offer no evidence either way). J.K. Rowling’s lawyers have also contacted the website to ask that they take down the article, which broke the story that the leak existed.
