Rumor Water – New Group Planning Fresh Attacks Against Sony

by Ernice Gilbert on May 6th, 2011, under Hot, PS3, PSN, Rumor, Sony

It’s official, these hackers don’t give a crap about us, the gamers. Word has hit the internet via CNET that a new group of hackers are planning a third hit against Sony because, according to the group, it didn’t like the way the firm handled the PlayStation Network breach.

What?

It’s apparently a third major attack planned this weekend against Sony sites. The group behind the attack plan on revealing all or some of the information they are able to copy from Sony’s servers. This includes customer names, credit card numbers, and addresses. The hackers are also boasting that they already have access to some of Sony’s servers.

We don’t know if this latest rumor holds water, but if it does, and succeeds, it’d be another blow to the hardware giant after facing a wave of attacks across all its services, the most notable being PSN and SOE.

    This just pisses me off. They think they are doing this for the gamers and are just trying to hurt the company, but are hurting both. They want to hurt the big bad company, but what is the company made of, people. They want to hurt the CEO and investors, but do they realize what happens when the CEO loses money. He or she does not worry, and does not really lose anything, but he rather fires people to make up for the money he or she lost. Well, the hackers supposedly “speak” for the hardworking people, but have now clue how business works. When Sony starts losing money, the CEO’s will stay, but the developers, factory workers, PR guys, and other workers will get the shaft. They will lose their jobs and not be able to take care of their families. It also means that there will be less jobs for these up and coming developers and such. So they do not help anybody at all, but rather do it for a high. This hacking is like a drug that they need to make their lives feel better.

    i hope these people realize there only hurting there cause.
    ok there trying to make sony see there mistakes, but how is attacking there servers, and putting millions of peoples info in jeopardy going to help achieve that?
    if you dont agree with something a company is doing you contact your government and complain like im doing, if that does nothing you take them to court like im doing.
    attacking there servers and handing out personal data is not exactly going to solve the issue!
    throwing napalm onto a blazing fire is not exactly a effective way to put it out!
    these idiots are no worse then the people there trying to protest against.
