Outspoken pop star's site suffers DDoS attack

Lily Allen’s website hit by piracy campaigners

Lily Allen’s website went down a number of times yesterday, in what appeared to be a co-ordinated attack against her vocal anti-piracy views.

According to ZDNet, copyright activists launched the distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks against the pop star as payback for her criticism of illegal file sharing.

Allen recently shut down a blog of anti-piracy statements by fellow artists after heated public criticism, but has continued to condemn illegal file sharing publicly.

The attack follows Allen taking legal action against Apple after her MacBook was hacked.
