"a group of internet vigilante hackers"

Surely you mean a group of talentless script kiddies thinking they're elite because they can paste a url in to LOIC and press the hivemind button, TOTALLY HACKERS right there, wow, that's gotta take some skills. >_>

Senden2811d ago

Yeah because any average talentless script kiddie can take down PSN.. if they were really that amateur, Sony would look like idiots.

Clearly you don't know what a DDoS is then.

TheTruth892811d ago (Edited 2811d ago )

They put PSN and sites down simply by 'flood' the sites and PSN with dummy internet traffic.

There NO skills here.

Why not HACK the site?

Anonymous Noobs.

Senden2811d ago

Nope i'm not sure exactly sure what DDoS is but if it's that easy to accomplish, i'm sure there would be loads of people doing it.

Also just curious but when have these people claimed to be hackers? I'm pretty sure they've just been labelled as such and never made such claims.

PirateThom2811d ago

DDoS attacks are basically flooding sites/servers with fake data. It's not hard, it just requires a concentrated effort to achieve it.

It actually doesn't require hacking abilities just enough people sending dummy requests to the site.

Hell, you could do it yourself to any website via a command prompt if you really, really wanted to! Obviously, one person alone will have little impact and it's going to be a bitch on your internet, but that's how Anonymous does it, as a group effort.

Senden2811d ago

Well I guess you could say Hacktivists 1 - Sony 10.

If my fiancee could get hold of them for disrupting her M.A.G session the other night they would be dead by now.
