Anonymous hacks Sony PS3 sites

Remove your penis from this hornets' nest

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Several Sony PlayStation sites are unavailable this morning thanks to what looks like a distributed denial of service attack launched by Anonymous.

The hacktivists have left the Scientologists alone in order to harass the console-makers because of Sony's action against two lads for jailbreaking PS3s.

In a strangely self-important and sanctimonious message, the hackers said:

Congratulations, Sony.

You have now received the undivided attention of Anonymous. Your recent legal action against our fellow hackers, GeoHot and Graf_Chokolo, has not alarmed us, it has been deemed wholly unforgivable....

Now you will experience the wrath of Anonymous.

You saw a hornets' nest, and stuck your penises in it.

You must face the consequences of your actions.

Anonymous style."

No comment from Sony so far this morning, we will update this story should we hear back from them.

The UK PlayStation 3 site is down, so is the European PlayStation store. But the main US and UK Sony sites are still available.

There's more from AnonNews here.

Anonymous is better known for its attacks against Scientology and in support of Julian Assange. ®
