    After the piracy activist group known as 4can targeted the MPAA and RIAA websites with a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack one week ago, a group of activists has locked on a new target: anti-piracy lawyers. On Friday, according to Slyck, a website dedicated to file sharing, the website root directory of anti-piracy law firm ACS:Law was exposed, creating the possibility of a "cataclysmic data breach" for the company. Sure enough, Slyck noted that "a torrent file claiming to be the internal email database of ACS:Law and solicitor Andrew Crossley has been posted to The Pirate Bay and on the web."
