Sony.com, as you can see, is live again. Sony are also getting their technicians to bring back PlayStation.com; a ping test reveals the site is working but the DDoS attack has taken effect quite hard so it’s struggling to come back online. The news comes after Sony’s main websites were taken offline by an attack from Anonymous – a group who recently declared war with Sony.
The news comes after the group said:
Congratulations, Sony. You now have now received the undivided attention of Anonymous. Your recent legal action against our follow hackers, Geohot and Graf_Chokolo, has not only alarmed us, it has been deemed wholly unforgivable.”
You have now abused the judicial system in an attempt to censor information on how your products work. You have victimised your own customers merely for possessing and sharing information, and continue to target every person who seeks this information. In doing so you have violated the privacy of thousands. This is the information they were willing to teach the world for free. The very same information you wish to suppress for sake of corporate greed and complete control of the users.
Now you will experience the wrath of Anonymous. You saw a hornets nest. You must face the consequences of your actions, Anonymous style.
Knowledge is Free. We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not Forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.
