"Operation: Payback Is A Bitch" began as an attack against Aiplex - a controversial Indian firm that works for Bollywood film studios and carries out DDoS attacks on websites hosting BitTorrent trackers that fail to respond to takedown notices - before progressing onto other entertainment industry websites. The attacks were initially coordinated via a IRC channel, which has since been taken offline.
