More On Sony: Hacker Group Anonymous Denies Affiliation With Most Recent Attack

According to Sony, a file named "Anonymous" with the sentence "We Are Legion" contained within was discovered on Sony servers Sunday during a deep investigation of the most recent hack that brought PSN crashing down.

Sony wants to blame hacker group Anonymous for the attack but the group claims no affiliation with the attack. While the group organized and conducted a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS) on Sony's Playstation Network servers days before the high profile break in was discovered, the group still claims that the had nothing to do with the attack and intrustion that compromised over 70 million users personal data.

The group posted a letter stating that "While we are a distributed and decentralized group, our 'leadership' does not condone credit card theft" and "If a legitimate and honest investigation is conducted, Anonymous will not be found liable."

It is possible that the DDoS attack that was conducted by Anonymous provided cover for the true hackers, who performed a well-thought out and organized attack leading to the theft of millions of users credit card information.

In my opinion, I think that Anonymous had nothing to do with it. The true hackers saw a window, pulled off the unthinkable very swiftly and smoothly then planted a file pointing back at Anonymous during their get away.

1. Are you getting antsy about the still down PSN?
2. Who do you think it was? Anonymous or another group?
3. Isn't Anonymous too unorganized to do something like this?

NATO Air Strike Kills Moammar Gadhafi's Son

Early Sunday, an air strike on Moammar Gadhafi's son supposedly ended in death.

According to Ibrahim, NATO targeted the son's home after learning that Gadhafi himself was there visiting with his wife. The air strike somehow missed Gadhafi, but killed his youngest son and three of hi grandchildren.

NATO denies targeting the house and "regrets all loss of life."

Shortly after the air strike, world media was ushered in by Libyan officials to cover the story. When journalist got to the home, everything was cleaned up and no sign of death remained. This lead to skepticism about the truth behind the claims of death.

However, other sources are skeptical about NATO's claim to not have been targeting Gadhafi.

No matter which may be the truth, the regime in Libya is greatly angered and has vowed to retaliate with death to "invaders" in the nation.

Way to go NATO.

1. What do you think of this war?
2. What about Gahafi? Does he need to die?
3. Think this is a lie on NATO's part or on the Libyan Regimes part?
