Anonymous Won’t Attack PlayStation Network, But Sony Executives

The hacker group Anonymous recently explained that they would be going after Sony for supporting SOPA, but have since clarified exactly who they would be going after. Instead of the PlayStation Network like everyone previously assumed, they will be going after Sony Executives. Many inside of Anonymous wanted to attack the PlayStation Network, but they concluded that they would not attack PSN. The plan now seems to be to post personal information about Sony executives online, deface Sony’s website with anti-SOPA propaganda, and make copywritten Sony media available for free from links on Sony’s assorted websites. Remember that since the threat surfaced, Sony revoked their SOPA backing. It has not been concluded if the reason was relative to this threat.
