I figured they would keep up their attacks because of Sony's request of IP addresses. Too bad if Sony settled just to stop their attacks...
As far as i have heard the settlement is a really good thing for sony and detters other hackers so its doubtful thats the reaaon for settling.... I can see public opinion of anonymous being low if they carry one. There becoming a thorn in everyone side attacking not just sony but everyone
waaaaaait a minute... http://www.youtube.com/watc... notice something??!!
@newmonday well spotted
Wow, see this is what I mean, that wasnt very anonymous at all
lol, way to be "anonymous", geroge....
I doubt it's real, it looks edited onto the screen
are you kidding? if not it's clearly a still photo from George's video. i don't know if that idiot is a member of Anonymous but or not but the one thing i'm sure of is they used geohot's video cuz george is relevant to the case.
Yup, it's edited on still from GeoHots 3.55 JailBreak video. Pixel count is the same, reflections too. Picture is a bit cut, contrast is improved and it's a bit darker. Excluding obious as pad in exactly the same position, camera angle etc. Amateurish try to frame/revenge on GeoHot. Any more proofs it's not about GeoHot, freedom, fighting for the small guy? It looks more and more like pirates want free games on PS3 or kids have nothing to do with their lives.
Hmm All they say the same thing every video :( this is getting old lol And dunno why they are so P***** off about some IP Addresses when they are and have clearly done worse Lol :) Hate Hypocrites specially ones that effect me xD
There wont be any attacks, these boys are exactly that, boys. Decided to go check out what skills they have, and its none. They dont even know how to hack, and just sit in the IRC all day saying its anonymous time, Sony will fall.
Yet when questioned none of them actually even have the ability to do basic hacking, let alone attack the PSN, what we felt that day was maintenance on Sonys end. Anon have and will continue to do nothing becuase that is all they are capable of
If you doubt hack skills of that group you are mistaken. They choose to use legal hacking as DDOS attack is. If they want to they have skills to do some serious hacking. Recently they took down security company working for FBI for looking into Anonymous structure. And when i said serious hacking i meant it. They took down bunch of their sites they had total control over their network,servers,mails and person who wanted to look into Anonymous group CEO of that security company paid well. In short CEO don't work in industry now, almost 62k emails of three main people including Ceo was leaked to public on torret sites. They delated 1TB of data from their servers. Here is summary : http://www.youtube.com/watc... 14 year old girl social hacked administrator of their sites. Also taking down even by DDOS attack master card site and visa is no small feat same with bank of america. Call them idiots call them terrorists but they have power to do some serious sh*t.
Actually they took down strong security firm HBGary and published their intern emails online. Head of the firm left.. They did it immediately after HBGary told they could name the most of Anon. Search "Anonymous punks FBI" on youtube.
I dont disagree that the true Anonymous has the skill needed. Just I dont think this is the real anonymous, go drop into the IRC and you can tell this a bunch of amatuer pre-teens for the most part. Something Im sure the real Anonymous would not want to associate themselves with
@ limewax you said they don't have skills. Don't spin it. As of real Ano. There is no real ano or fake ano. All are Ano. Ano is group of people who vote for attacks if you don't vote you don't do any attack. One group of Ano can be completly diffrent than other. That is their strenght there are no leader only ideas. Perfect democracy :D
I keep seeing people complain about Sony requesting a list of IP addresses, but what I can't understand is why people are upset about it. Sony never requested user information related to those IP addresses. An IP address without user information is just a meaningless number. They just used those addresses to prove that people in California were involved, to prove jurisdiction. Sony did not violate anyone's privacy by requesting a list of IP addresses. Again, it is just a list of (in most cases dynamic) numbers.
So they collected information to do nothing with that ? :> So why they collected it to begin with ? :> Sorry i don't see it that way...
Jebus Perkel are you dense or something. They requested the ips to prove jurisdiction in Cali. What part don't you understand? Were you on the yellow bus in school?
Perkel: "So they collected information to do nothing with that ? :> So why they collected it to begin with ? :>" *to prove jursidiction*, you fool, because the IP address would indicate the general location. they only had the IP address, *nothing* else. *no* personal information was obtained. time to take off that tin foil hat...
Actually the settlement was reached days before Anonymous announced their attacks. They're probably even more mad since their cause is moot.
Lord_Doggington - sony didn't settle for anything - they ALLOWED geo to settle. didn't you see what geo agreed to? sony got exactly what they wanted from that.
I get the feeling that if anonymous didn't start the attacks, Sony would have drawn out the legal battle and completely bankrupted Hotz. The fact that anonymous is still taking action is partially unsettling. I wonder if they want a public statement saying those whose IP addresses they gathered will not be subject to investigation. Sucks for Sony because if they do come out w/ a public statement like that, they'll look so weak in the public eye. Anonymous is kinda shitty for doing this, but they still feel like it's justified.
These kids haven't damaged anything beyond the credibility of Anonymous. Go take on the banks and oil companies or something. If these kids are going to keep up this relatively meaningless junk, at least have the common decency to not waste the "Anonymous" name on it.
uwwww just like the movies :O. so cheesyy.
AGREED. these guys are just a bunch of attention whores. why are they now even fighting with sony? sont settled with geohot. so now whats their cause <not like they even had one to start off with>. they want linux? let just all buy these poor lil boys a laptop, put linux on it and give it to them. seriously, there is no need to go on like this. geohot and failoverflow took the crown of "first to hack the ps3" so what are these wankers going on for now? they are as lame as their attacks. EDIT: just watched this youtube clip :P are these guys serious? lol "if you have bought any sony products, please return them" lmfao- are these guys serious? lmao- what if i am loving my Sony Bravia tv and wont settle for the samsung? lol am i to sit with a tube tv? lol another thing, which mindless person will follow these guys? more importantly, wouldnt store owners kick these masked wankers out coz they gonna lose business if customers are stopped from buying sony products. lol these guys think as far as their nose. lol
Cant sony just send a team of ninja's and silence this tween legion.
What happens when you put this group and a stick together? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Their biggest attack huh? What are they going to do this time? Send pizzas to Mr. Tretton's house, but this time put extra cheese on them?
no - they'll go full assault and add anchovies to those pizzas!
They don't know how to quit,so they continue. cz it's so hard to find a way to keep their face...it's too ridiculous.
This just doesn't seem like the original Anon group. I still say it is a few of 4chans lower level anons who are getting all butthurt and trying to get backing for their cries.
Should they be wasting their time going after something more important, like the fact the federal reserve is handing our money away to housewives of big banks? What a waste of a cause.. over what? Linux?
These guys are jokes, hands down. After watching that video, I can already tell these guys are no more than an annoying fly on Sony's shoulder. But they also need to watch how they word things since, if Sony wants to be slightly cocky, they can treat this as a violent threat as its not clarified what they mean by what they say "biggest attack you have ever witnessed". Especially when the biggest "attack", of sorts, they ever witnessed was not too long ago with that Tsunami. Now if anyone is taking this too far, it's Anon.
Here is how i see it, if they were to bomb a Sony store than i am sure that would send shock to the public and return get the CIA involve. Which would make their lives hard regarless of what their resume may indicate. Sony is no small fish and it has proved it can hold is on. To Sony and any other major corporation for that matter, they see like trevolta did in swordfish. They bomb a church, we bomb a town. Its just how it goes. Trust me when i say this, some of those individuals will eventual end up getting traced and caught and prosecuted as well. You can only hide for so long before you're found.
Anonymous style ey? You fuckin suck you motherfucker you! get a life you fuckin hackers and leave us true gamers alone.
They are like a little army of ants trying to get the attention of an elephant. Sony doesn't give two shits about some nerds who hide their ugly faces and stand in side their stores. What are you Batman or something? The new vigilante of geeks? Grow the fuck up and relies you arnt special and that because Sony has a hold of millions of ip addresses doesn't mean they can do anything with them. This whole thing is just an excuses because they are still butt hurt that they cant hack the PS3.
I wish these guys would just grow up, they are truly pathetic. As always its us that has to pay for there stupid little games.
yeeeeeeeeaaaaah cuz im totally gonna stop playing lbp2, kz3 and miss out on res3 infamous 2, uncharted 3 for u annonymous, Im reallyy gonna lose my blu-ray player, internet browser, and start paying to play online because of you anonymous. suuuure lmao stfu, why dont u attack n4g? they look up IP's when they ban people, MS Ban's IP's when u hack ur xbox, so why only attack the ps3? freakin losers thats why, not like IP addresses are that dangerous to non hackers lol
I'd hack something useful like evil politics who allow the "free-world" (if you want to call it that) to go down the shitter. Not sony. lol. Talk about misplaced. Just kids doing kiddie things.
for real, and why target ps3's? sony has tons of things like laptops, and tons of crap, i wonder if its just a legion of pc/360 fanboys doing this lol i mean even 360 fanboys wouldnt stoop this low.........right boooooys?
Ha Do they think they had anything to do with Sony settling the case lol. Have they ever accomplished anything over than been a minor inconvenience for anyone??
That location for the video was used for another video pertaining to pirated PS3 games using the PSJailbrake. Looks like Anonymous does condone piracy.
Awwww poor ps3 fanboys/sony :(....now keep them attacks coming :))))
Sounds like Anonymous is a little salty over the outcome of the case. Hope this dies down soon, that way we can move on.
why are they using V as their face now? that wasnt what the first video was like.. that came from the gaming media i think... that related anonymous to the movie V for vendetta .. but now they are using V as their image? thats childish again any kid with a pc and some video editing skills can produce a video and call themself anonymous .. even i can do that video easily .. maybe its not them.. who knows
