Hacker Group Targets Sony Websites And Employees
In response to PS3 Hacker, Geohot’s case, a group of anonymous hackers warned Sony yesterday that targeting Geohot was a suppression of free speech. The group warned Sony to “expect them” and issued a DDoS attack on Sony.com and Playstation.com. Although the sites were taken back by Sony, users experienced slower than normal loading speeds. Although Sony did not acknowledge the attacks, they sent out a tweet saying “PSN currently under sporadic maintenance” and “access to PSN may be interrupted throughout the day.” Today, the hacking group has released the following statement:
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, and stuck your p*nises in it. You must face the consequences of your actions, Anonymous style.
A hacker named “Dox” listed a number of antics the hackers may perform on Sony and PlayStation employees:
Craigslist – Make a ad in the “free stuff” section, or in “erotic services” and “casual encounters” as is evident here there are many horny men who will relentlessly pursue someone who they believe to be 19/f.
STD Postcards – send one of these e-postcards notifying the target that one of their previous sexual partners has a STD. Makes for an uncomfortable wait for them. Alternatively call an AIDS hotline and ask them to anonymously tell the target they could have HIV, thats a 6 month wait until the test comes back.
Free UPS Boxes create an account and order the target a couple of hundred boxes & labels, fedex also offer free boxes.
Google Maps use Google maps to locate local businesses to mess with the target.
Skype – Use skype to call the target. When you first register a skype account you get one free call…
IP Relay – Ask the operator not to announce at the start of the call. This is a service only available to people in the USA.
