The FBI says it is investigating why the websites for the FBI, the Department of Justice, and several entertainment industry sites all went down Thursday after the government shut down one of the world’s largest file-sharing sites.

The hackers’ group calling itself “Anonymous” claimed credit for the attacks, which kept the sites offline for several hours late Thursday. By Friday, most had been restored to service, including the federal agencies.
