4Chan message board pranksters Tuesday set their sights on the website of ultra-conservative political group, the Tea Party, exploiting a site flaw to replace the party's image with one that featured a snow-covered grizzly bear beneath a caption stating, "I f------ love cocaine".
General news website, Boing Boing, captured the image.
The pranksters also took their "Operation Payback" campaign, targeting anti-piracy organisations since last Friday, to maligned UK anti-piracy law firm ACS:Law.
Its website was still down Wednesday after being knocked offline Tuesday night, according to torrent news website Torrent Freak.
The one man law firm, run by Andrew Crossley, has been the subject of over 200 complaints due to his practice of mass-mailing alleged file-sharers and demanding a fee or face court.
4Chan's "Operation Payback" had already launched a DDoS against the Motion Picture Association of America, Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), and IFPI.
