sony psn playstation websites hacked1

If you thought Sony suing Geohot was interesting, wait until you get a load of this. Earlier this morning, the hacking collective Anonymous warned Sony that its ongoing battle with Geohot and fellow hacker Graf_Chokolo was a suppression of free speech. Anonymous issued a warning to “expect [them].” And making good on their promises, the unknown team of hackers went ahead and issued a DDoS attack on Sony.com and PlayStation.com. The sites have since been taken back by Sony, albeit they are loading at slower speeds than usual. As an alternative, Anonymous is targeting the PlayStation Network by causing it to malfunction. At the moment, Sony hasn’t acknowledged the attacks, but did issue a tweet confirming “PSN currently undergoing sporadic maintenance. Access to the PSN may be interrupted throughout the day.” As always, we’ll update this story if new information arises, but for now, what do you think? Did Sony put itself into a hot seat it can’t fight? Despite how large Sony is, it’s kind of hard to fight off hackers who reside all over the world.
