Hacker Group ‘Anonymous’ Promises Vengeance to Sony for SOPA Support

In the past couple of weeks, SOPA has become a huge debate in the gaming community. It has never been so bad until recently. The largest company hit with the consequences, that I have seen, is GoDaddy, who supported SOPA and lost many many MANY customers to Name.com and Domain.com. Besides GoDaddy, other companies are yet to face retribution, including PS3 platform holder Sony. Enter the world of Anonymous and Operation Blackout.

The video above says the following:

It has come to the attention of the Anonymous activist community that you have chosen to stand by the Stop Online Piracy Act. Anonymous warned Sony. This act will halt online businesses and restrict access to many sites for many users. Supporting SOPA is like trying to throw an entire company from off a bridge. Your support to the act is a signed death warrant to SONY Company and Associates. Therefore, yet again, we have decided to destroy your network. We will dismantle your phantom from the internet. Prepare to be extinguished. Justice will be swift, and it will be for the people, whether some like it or not. Sony, you have been warned.

They continue by reciting their previous attacks, mentioning that they infiltrated the servers of Bank of America, United States Department of Defense, and the United Nations in one day.

To any of you that might have forgotten, Anonymous waged a war against Sony for its lawsuit against hardware hacker GeoHot, causing the PlayStation Network to go down soon after.

UPDATE: At some point recently, Sony has revoked their support for SOPA. It is unknown if it is correlated to this subject.
