Hackers plan 3rd Sony attack

Written by Nick Farell


Miffed about the outfit's handling of the other two
A hacker group is planning a third attack against Sony over its handling of the other two.

An observer of the Internet Relay Chat channel used by the hackers told Cnet that the hackers are planning a third attack this weekend. The people involved plan to publicize all or some of the information they are able to copy from Sony's servers, which could include customer names, credit card numbers, and addresses. The hackers claim they still have access to some of Sony's servers. (Now that's a first. sub.ed.)

Sony says it doesn't know who orchestrated what it's calling a "highly sophisticated, planned" attack, but thinks the group Anonymous is involved. Anonymous denies this and it would appear that Cnet has found the real hackers.

Sony won't get over Anonymous, it seems.

Pretty sure Anonymous would have taken credit for this if it was them? Seems like Sony wants to lay the blame anywhere. Wasn't PSN supposed to be back online like 2/3 days ago?

"Anonymous denies this and it would appear that Cnet has found the real hackers."

Where in the article you linked is any information about the real culprits? Its pretty much the same article you just wrote. Amateur plagiarism at is best at Fudzilla.com

Perhaps Sony should lay off the arrogance for once in their life, and then maybe just maybe people wouldn’t target them and use them as a Guinea pig... It’s bad enough there security stinks beyond believe...

Rarely do you hear about Valve/Steam being hacked. Vavle is awesome along with there Half-Live & Left 4 Dead series...

Heehee, a little grey alien told me it was a Toshiba laptop with a SpursEngine on board!
