This is another group called Lulz Security (LulzSec). Which in all likelyhood is members from Anon seeing as it's part of their agenda to be as annoying as is humanly possible with a computer and an internet connection.

Ahh the same group of children that hacked PBS the other week stating they had found files that claim Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls are alive and well living in New Zeeland :Lol:

 

 

The group that claimed responsibility for last week's PBS website hack has claimed it is hacking Sony right now – and stealing "internal" information.

 

 

"Hey @Sony, you know we're making off with a bunch of your internal stuff right now and you haven't even noticed? Slow and steady, guys" reads a tweet published by the hackers this morning.

 

LulzSec, as the group is known, threatened Sony with what it describes as an "operation".

"This is the beginning of the end for Sony," it said on Twitter.

 

Then, "(Sony + Ownage) Phase 1 will begin within the next day. We may have a pre-game show for you folks though. Stay tuned."


LulzSec has already hacked the PBS website, posting a report that deceased rapper Tupac Shakur is "alive and well" in New Zealand, along with Biggie Smalls, aka The Notorious BIG.

 

It is also reportedly responsible for the hacks on Sony BMG's Japanese website.

Sony said this morning that it will fully restore PlayStation Network services by the end of the week.

 

Sony took PSN offline on 20th April following a hack that saw personal information tied to 77 million accounts compromised.

 

Sony is working with the FBI to track down those responsible.

In all fairness, the super glue has hardly had time to dry!

 

Seriously though, it's getting a bit annoying now. I had hoped that they had grown bored of this and moved on to doing something productive with their lives!... clearly not.

"It's not Sony's fault, they're not to blame."

 

I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot of that in this thread. :D

The most concerning part of this story, is this story.

 

 

 

Look at it, it looks like it should be on a low profile gaming website or something, not the BBC. The basing of a story on the UKs flagship news outlet on only the words of a source within a group that are claiming to be commiting a criminal activity?  Seriously?

 

 

 

 

I knew reporting was abusing wikipedia as it is, but to now just give any group of criminals a huge spotlight if they even say they have hacked someone. With seemingly no other reporting done.

 

 

 I mean sweet zombie jeebus, it does not even say sony were not available to comment.... Which makes me think they have not even gone after an official confirmation...

Who gets attacked is not relevent. What is relevent is the fact that we have a seemingly ever growing number of criminals actively attacking anyone who will not give in to them.

 

 

 This is essentially a protection racket. Hackers saying let us do what we want, or we will burn your business down.

Probably.

 

 Especially when you consider that the US government now considers cyber attacks as a possible act of war.

 

Crimes commited over the internet are going to become an issue that all governments will need to deal with. Probably with massive oversight and regulation by a government body.

Some say, he's actually dead... But the Grim reaper, is too scared to tell him.
Some say that all his pot plants are called Steve.. and that he has a life size tattoo of his face.. on his face.
All we know.. is he's called the Stig.

"Has claimed" those are the words you need to look at.

 

Probably just a bunch of spotty kids who whack off to Justin Bieber.

The way I see it is this, hackers, like it or not exist. If a company is idiotic enough to store it's customers information un-encrypted as these hackers claim, they allegedly took 1000,000 members details with little effort. Then people need to be informed that such a company cannot be trusted with sensitive information.

Sony executives should be shamed for these attacks if only for playing loose and fast with customers account details. I'm really amazed though that Sony haven't reviewed their whole network security knowing the chaos and bad publicity the PSN hack caused. If these latest hacking claims bear fruit they will have managed to have shot themselves in not one but both feet and the ***** as well.
