The hacker group Anonymous cracked the website of Austrian Ministry of Justice and partially paralyzed the site. The hackers threaten to attack the websites of Austria’s Ministry of Internal Affairs, Ministry of Economy and also the website of the Federal Chancellor, ITAR-TASS informs.

According to the hackers their hooliganism is a protest action against the agreement on fighting against trade of ‘pirate’ goods made by the U.S. and the EU countries in order to fight against ‘piracy’ on websites and the violation of copyrights.

 To remind, recently Anonymous launched an attack against US websites and the website of the French president for closing MegaUpload.
