Operation Payback Hacks ACAPOR, Redirects to The Pirate Bay

Today is proving to be a very active day for Operation: Payback. First, GeneSimmons.com and SimmonsRecords.com was attacked. Unlike the first time, this was a united attack, which resulted in failure of both sites. Now, followers of Operation:Payback have attacked ACAPOR.pt. ACAPOR is a Portuguese outfit that looks out for the interests of movie rental establishments. And as it so happens, according to TorrentFreak, ACAPOR filed a complaint with the Portuguese Ministry of Culture against The Pirate Bay last month.

That made the site a prime target - as hackers have precipitated yet another attack. No, the site wasn't DoS'd, but it appears that another vulnerability was found, much like the MPAA's CopyProtected.com. In the continuing effort of Operation:Payback, the site has been compromised. If one visits ACAPOR.pt, the Operation:Payback manifesto is displayed. Within about 30 seconds, the site then redirects to The Pirate Bay.

We're not sure of the exact vulnerability exploited, as this is a fluid news event that we'll update as news comes in.
