Sony and PlayStation.com Brought Down By Anon Attack, More to Follow
 

 
After claiming that Sony’s lawsuit against George Hotz et al was an attack on free speech, hacking collective Anonymous declared war on Sony. Hoping to seek revenge on the company, Anonymous warned that Sony would soon suffer for their actions. Now, Sony.com and PlayStation.com has fallen to the hackers, with more sites promised to follow.


Speaking on a IRC chat a group of Anonymous are currently attacking several Sony sites. At the moment both Sony.com and PlayStation.com are down, presumably due to a DDOS attack. People involved in the attack, called “OpSony” are asking that hackers “crash all server of sony please”.

In a document detailing some members plans for the attack, other sites targeted include sonypictures.co.uk and sony-europe.com, which are currently up.

Sony has yet to comment on the attacks. PlayStation LifeStyle will keep you updated as the situation develops.

 Sony and PlayStation.com Brought Down By Anon Attack, More to Follow | PlayStation LifeStyle

Update

After a group of hackers took down Sony.com as well as the PlayStation website, Sony has responded by putting Sony.com back live again as well as continuing their efforts to get back the other affected websites.

Sony.com, as you can see, is live again. Sony are also getting their technicians to bring back PlayStation.com; a ping test reveals the site is working but the DDoS attack has taken effect quite hard so it’s struggling to come back online. The news comes after Sony’s main websites were taken offline by an attack from Anonymous – a group who recently declared war with Sony.

Not all of Sony's sites have went down.

Anyways, it will probably be back up in a few hours.

wait so you hate greedy companies for getting pre-order bonuses, saying how it's bad for the future of gaming. but when someone stands up for the future of not just gaming but technology in general you hope the FBI comes down on them? whatever makes you feel good
