The MPAA has suffered a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack from supporters of The Pirate Bay, the website that the movie producers' organization has accused of aiding and abetting online piracy. According to TorrentFreak.com, hackers managed to cover a part of the MPAA's own website and to post a link on the MPAA's "about" page to The Pirate Bay, which includes the TPB logo and links to pirated movies. The MPAA later removed the offending material.
