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?
