Anonymous Won’t Target the PSN or Consumers
Following last year’s threat by the eActivist group known as Anonymous, Sony’s PlayStation Network was brought down, angering legions of players. With Anonymous leveling a new threat against Sony for its support of SOPA, concerns have risen of a recurrence of the PSN downtime.
However, this time around — and perhaps in response to the negative publicity the PSN fiasco caused them — Anonymous suggests it will not touch the PSN, nor will it target “normal customers.” Anonymous does plan to retrieve and publicly post personal information about Sony executives, including credit card numbers, as well as deface Sony websites with anti-SOPA memes and place links to copyrighted material, possibly making Sony’s own films and music available to download for free on these websites.
