Anonymous hack Sony PlayStation, crashing websites
Many Sony PlayStation websites are down this morning after a distributed denial of service attack was launched by hackers Anonymous.
Anonymous, who are more well known for their support of Julian Assange and goading Scientology, have gone after Sony after the entertainment giants took legal action against two people for jailbreaking PS3s.
You have now received the undivided attention of Anonymous. Your recent legal action against our fellow hackers, GeoHot and Graf_Chokolo, has not alarmed us, it has been deemed wholly unforgivable....
Now you will experience the wrath of Anonymous.
You saw a hornets' nest, and stuck your penises in it.
You must face the consequences of your actions.
The UK PlayStation 3 site is down, so is the European PlayStation store. But the main US and UK Sony sites are still available. This also means that the entire Playstation online gaming service (Playstation Network) is down as well, so don't think you'll be playing FIFA11 with your mates online this morning.
