Boeing has backed the anti-piracy bill, which would allow businesses and the government to share cyber security information. Cyber activists say CISPA will destroy Internet users' privacy and promote censorship on the Internet.
On Tuesday, Anonymous said on Twitter that it took down Boeing's website. Boeing's site continued to have problems Wednesday morning.
Boeing initially did not comment on its website troubles when contacted by The Herald. Company spokeswoman Kate Bergman wrote in an email Wednesday morning that she couldn't comment on the details. However, "Boeing has a robust security team that constantly monitors our website."
Anonymous has called CISPA's backers its sworn enemies, saying the group will "destroy your reign of terror on our domain, you will cease to exist."
