In other words, theyre saying:

"We're doing to be selfish d**ks and ruin the gaming experience for millions of PSN users. We dont give a damn about any of you. If you wanted a good online service, you should have got a 360. Haha. Nah that'll be hacked too before long. Hacking the PSN is so fun, listing to millions of people cry. Hackers rule because we have more freedom."

Seriously though. Why? WHERE IS THE FUN IN RUINING EXPERIENCE FOR OTHER PEOPLE? If i went and hacked their future weddings (if thats possible), i bet they wouldnt be pleased.

Are they (Hackers) serious!?!? I mean come on now. What the hell is up with them. This looks more and more like a personal vendetta. Either someone Sony fired, or from a competing company. It's just getting so ridiculous that it isn't funny. Is Sony so bad that they want to bring it down. If the hackers want to do something useful, how about helping people find jobs, or helping fight organized crime, etc. I mean really is Sony what is wrong with the world. Microsft has had it easy. I'd have thought having RROD or even to pay for Live would get hackers up in arms. I guess those are all acceptable in their books.

Sony are getting attacked left right and center, because they went to a fight against hackers. And now they and their consumers (me being one) are getting fucked.

I'm pretty sure hackers will be able to crack Sony's new system, no system is impenetrable.

They know not what they do.
If they ever actually succeeded in inflicting long lasting damage to a company the size of Sony then they will have gotten the attention of governments the world over.

That could ultimately lead to the end of the anonymous internet. Every ISP could require you to log in before you could access anything. Governments could then start issuing smart cards and require 2 or 3 factor authentication before you could access anything.

What would the hackers do then? They'd probably curl up into a ball and die as their only source of self worth would be all but gone.
inveni0  +   1712d ago
They may be able to hack Sony's new system, but I can guarantee they won't be able to do it anonymously. I'm sure Sony has plans to shut down any connections it can't validate as authentic. And the connections it does take will be traced like the pages of a nudie mag.

They more people these hackers piss off the larger the group becomes when you piss off a large enough group they can turn on you.

Look at Anonymous's own IRC servers they all got shut down simply using the very same thing they do to other people's websites.

If a million separate people simply logged into their IRC servers and always did stuff they would have to shut them down.

If another group comes in the group bcomes larger and you simply keep the anonymous servers shut down.

Anonymous will whinge and complain but who cares right because it's only about the lulz after all and really should love it.

Most of the information on how to do this can be found on the internet.
Most of these people are just youngsters that tow the line and think their clever for it.
Think about it. Most people when they get past a certain age will start to focus on what’s important in life like career, family or a purpose.
How many of them think that purpose would be hacking into a gaming system.

A lot of these hackers seem to come and go, but I never see any of them turn up years later with something to change the world for the better.

If some of you actually wanted to learn more about hackers instead of just calling every one a bad person, read the above link. Its a top 10 of some of the more famous hackers. Notice how theirs two lists, White Hats, and Black Hats.

Without the white hat hackers, the black hats would take the internet and hack all the corporations. Do some research before you all start shouting off they arent what they use to be, or that all hackers are stupid evil little teenagers. Its a big business that makes lots of money.

Have non of you heard of DEF CON?

Its almost always been this way. All technology has always gone both ways. It can be used for good, or evil.

Can somebody explain to me why Sony can't just track this guys twitter account arrest the man behind him through the CIA or FBI and be done with it? Or just track the users on Anonymous website and be done with it? Cyber terrorism is a federal offense and if my memory serves right it's a 10 year offense too depending on the severity they could earn up to 15 right?

It seems like the easiest option but it hasn't been done can somebody with better knowledge of this explain this to me.

When you use the internet there is no DNA fingerprint, no CCTV footage, nothing to link you to the crime. Every computer has an IP address, yes, and in theory if every node on the internet kept a record of every packet sent and received and to where, you could track every hack back to an individual computer. (Of course this doesn't happen, there are numerous proxy sites and VPNs which can encrypt traffic and do not record any data).

But even if you could track a hack down to an individual computer, there is nothing to tie it to an individual in general. It could be a computer in a library or internet cafe (the payphones of the digital age). E-mail addresses used to register accounts will be free ones created with false info.

The anonymity of the internet is a huge problem because our law enforcement and jusice frameworks cannot deal with it easily. Spam is still a huge problem, scam websites a huge problem, hacking a huge problem. And as soon as one hacker makes himself known, he's targeted, and then the criminals strike back anonymously. It is completely unclear to me how we can stop this whilst retaining net neutrality.

Other people are just collateral damage. Just like innocent civilians getting killed in American bombing and poisoned by depleted uranium for decades after America bombs them in order to "bring freedom".

Now hackers are "bringing freedom" to the digital world, fighting companies who sue smart kids. There are better ways to fight piracy. Just like Gaddafi could find a better way to fight protesters.

I wouldn't worry about it, any "group" foolish enough to brag about what constitutes committing a crime will eventually screw up. The first hack of the psn got the attention of international crime fighting agencies like the fbi who all have a vested interest in locating wherever these attacks are originating from. Ensuring the PSN is secure and that those would be hackers are found out isnot a Sony only venture there are other parties involved now.

The problem here is that the media and websites are giving these hackers too much attention, and much like terrorists and religious bigots hackers live for the attention that's why they do what they do.

Hackers live for the notoriety, websites needs to adopt a policy that makes it bannable to post any information about hackers or hacks and the hackers will evaporate in the video game scene.
Until this is done gamers will have to live in fear and anger about the reality that malicious people like hackers bring.

Let's see. There are three major consoles: PS3, 360, Wii.

360 doesn't get hacked.

By hacked, I mean in a way that hinders us players. If 360 and Wii get hacked to let people download games, I don't condone it but at the same time, it doesn't affect me. Whereas PS3 being hacked and the PSN going down stops me from doing what I enjoy.

Hacking isn't particularly useful in any shape but the PSN hack in the worst and no one can deny that.

Well, with any luck they'll end up making hacking a more recognized crime and really screw up everyone's lives including their own as they give companies more reason to commercialize and restrict the internet, and end up in general population prison instead of some juvenile facility.

I can see it already:

ISP provider: "Hey if you let us filter our traffic, we'll take extra steps to weed out hacker types, we even have the tech to do it"

Government: "Originally we wanted to protect an equal playing field on the internet, but hacking is the greater evil here, so we'll let it slide to keep our capitalism secure, consumer rights need to slide as terrorists will start hacking soon"

Don't this pricks see that who they are really pissing off is not just Sony but us consumers? I'm starting to think that this dumba$$e are getting suported by M$.. Why is this happening during what was supposed to be the best year for Sony? Isn't this too much of a coincidence?
thtruth574  +   1712d ago
I think the feds will be watching this time. So I wouldnt worry too much. If one gets caught, Im sure he/she will rat out others. As soon as some reality is thrown in their face, they will talk. Im kinda excited for it. PSN will be fine this time. I have faith in Sony.
maddfoxx  +   1712d ago
These kids need to grow up one day. I really hope they slip up and law enforcement catches up to them. Hopefully, prison time will help them mature.

Why are numerous hacking groups attacking Sony all of a sudden? I doubt this is still about Geohot.

No, it's about their egos and they know people will see if they hit Sony. It's that simple.

This never would have happened if people like YOU didn't make fun of these losers in junior high and turn them into sociopathic basement virgins.
thtruth574  +   1712d ago
No idiot. This wouldn't happen if the powers that be made real consequences for people like these. But I think after this one, when they get caught, this wont happen again for a very long time. Stop defending people who you perceive were slighted, thats just life. The majority dont become criminals.

Some do, just like any other segment of society. The rest look for productive ways to take over the world. Like the clever guys who invented the internet. And Bill Gates (not a huge ms fan but he does have over $50B). And FDR (tell me he wasn't a nerd), and Barack Obama (he's a nerd too).

Be proud of your nerdiness.

Yawn. So are we supposed to be scared or something? Why don't you come out from behind those computer screens and say that to our faces cowards? It's easy to hide and threaten someone but just like Geohot when you drag them into the real world where you can get hurt you run away with your tails between your legs @ BlueTemplar yeah let's see them talk big when the bounty hunters and snitches come looking for them

@ dorron. Yeah and then when more bad things started happening they should have rolled over for that too. Are you all really this delusional? Do these people sound like they are reasonable? They literally stole Sony's property, handed it out to everyone and then got angry because Sony took action. And now they are pretending that they didn't do anything while creating hacks to steal accounts, cheat and steal from the store. For God sakes are you really that blind to think that if Sony had given in it would stop there? Why don't THEY give in?

Probably true...

Sony messed up going against hackers.

I think it was better to let a few pirate games (after all who the hell would download 50GB per game?) than having the hacking community against.
thtruth574  +   1712d ago
you wouldnt stand up for anything would you? lol you prolly could be convinced to do anything. They broke the law. You cant use any verbal gymnastics to get around that. If you dont like laws you should move to a country that doesnt have any.

These are just guys jumping on the bandwagon right now. Looking for their little 15 minutes and bragging rights. That's pretty much all it boils down too. These guys don't give a s*** about Geohotz. Their in it for s*** and giggles. Little bastards.
MrDead  +   1712d ago
Yes and why dont they also give out a small amout of customer personal data to go with that...... er NO.

Im still glad they stood up to them, shame not all companys have the cahoonas to pursue them the way sony have. These people are criminals its no different from going into a shop and helping yourself, or breaking into someones house and taking money from their wallets. Just because they are sitting behind a computer screen when they do it doesn't make it acceptable or any less of a crime.
MysticStrummer  +   1712d ago
@MrDead - Exactly. I'm glad to support a company that takes a stand against these losers. The state of Texas sent me a letter a few days ago saying that a database with personal info in it was hacked. They shut it down when they detected the hack, but couldn't say if anything was stolen. Familiar, huh? That database had my Social Security number in it, but I still haven't heard a thing about it on the news. Someone needs to stop those jackasses, and I'll keep supporting Sony even if they do get hacked again because they're at least trying.

blackburn10  +   1712d ago
If Sony is 'evil' for wanting to protect their property and investments then you better get an army ready because every company is the same thing. Better take down Starbucks and Mcdonalds first as a warm up. @ SuperStrokey1123. I wish they would. I wish they would constitute heavy fines and jail time for hacking networks and cyber terrorism. We would see how long we would see anymore hacker groups with fancy names if they knew they would have to get 3 jobs to pay fines or spend 7 years in prison. We would see how brave they are.

so i take it you were ok with sony releasing the ps3 at 600 bucks and telling the world that "it's the future... you won't find anything better..." blah, blah blah and then turn around a few months later and start removing everything that made it "better". this is why hackers go after them, cause sony likes to leave their custoimers hanging after they invest (heavily i might add) in their IS the evil Empire as they like to lie,cheat, and steal, their way to the top...people, people, have we forgotten how the 1st playstation came to be??
radphil  +   1712d ago

You're a one-trick pony aren't you?
optimus  +   1712d ago
in what sense? i go by facts. do you want to talk about the "innovation and support" of the eyetoy now? sony deserves to be hacked over and over again..."they screw us, we screw them."
cyclonus007  +   1712d ago

The only feature they actually removed was OtherOS. You're saying Sony is evil for releasing the system @ $600 and when they release a new model for half the price without OtherOS and backwards compatibility, they're still evil?

And you acknowledged that customers invest heavily in Sony products but you say they deserve to have those products compromised by hackers?

Your very logic is faulty.
joeorc  +   1712d ago

that is the very IDEA of being pro consumer an they are the one's that deserved to be hacked?

not just hacked, but hacked over an over ..what would happen is they would stop making a playstation?

an make software only for Android powered devices? would you buy an Android device for gaming?

because Sony could very well be likely do just that. than what now? you have an open space of just Microsoft an Nintendo that what a suprise do not do Open Source software.

the Only one out of the three that does indeed show some real pro Consumer IDEAS, play create an share does that ring a bell...Hmm?

an you want them out?

GTFO...I would love for the above to happen , lets see how pro consumer Nintendo an Microsoft are for Open source sware...beep..wrong answer, no open source for you.

even right now The xperia-play an The Xperia line sony gave out the root software steps to anyone that wanted to root their Xperia..did Microsoft do that for the Windows 7? or How about Nintendo do that for their Handheld the 3DS..hmm?

that would be a big giant NO.

So these claims that an you stated

""it's the future... you won't find anything better..." blah, blah blah and then turn around a few months later and start removing everything that made it "better". this is why hackers go after them, cause sony likes to leave their custoimers hanging after they invest (heavily i might add) in their IS the evil Empire as they like to lie,cheat, and steal, their way to the top...people, people, have we forgotten how the 1st playstation came to be?? "

yea i do remember the PS1 an every playstation since than an there was Homebrew development allowed but with one thing in common, sony locked out one part of the system an for good reason. but no that was not good enough for some people they had to try to make it completely open by force.

an you expect the way the company makes money from that product , not to go after the guy spreading info on how to bypass security so as to allow the home brew people not to pay a licence fee that every established publisher an development house that develops in the industry
would have to pay for thus taking money out of the company the relies on that money to keep support for such product?

of course not , How selfish of them right, the only one of the companies out of the three that supported Opensource in the d@mn first play wants to recoup losses from 3 straight years for a product that you were able to purchase well below the cost to make the d@mn machine in the first f#cking evil of them.

Well seeing as how i have no more replies allowed after this i'll try to answer everyone here...

@Cyclonus007_ i never said "sony was evil for releasing the ps3 at 600." that is the way YOU decided to read it...I declare sony as "EVIL" for their underhanded business tactics in general...and for your information taking out the OTHER OS was NOT the ONLY feature sony took out of the ps3. yes they took out backwards compatability, as well as usb ports, media card readers and linux support...and when i say "invest heavily" i mean people buy their products at huge prices for it's quality and features only to have sony take out the features that promopted them to buy it in the 1st place.

@Joeorc...i never mentioned homebrew anything, but since you brought it up, didn't sony stop linux support on their ps3's?...and why the need for a mobile gaming rant? but let's look at that too since you brought it up...the psp was technically superior to the DS but how long did that last before they decided to change it? and then they create this huplah about the "new and improved" psp by giving it a catchy name like "GO" and now they're backing this Xperia?...what a nice middle finger to the people that bought their little pspGO...and when i mentioned the playstation 1 i was referring to how they stole nintendo's idea of cd gaming, hence the playstation was born. (for the record i had a playstation...which i had to replace the lens about 3 times out of my own pocket).

@MysticStrummer- I do go by facts such as If you did a little research, you would find the disgusting story of the true origins of the “Walkman,” which basically made Sony the monster company that it is today. It was in fact blatantly stolen from a German inventor who had to fight them in court in order to get some kind of recompense for their outright theft.
I could go on and on about the other lawsuits as well but i hope you get the idea.

@digitalraptor..."misinf ormed"? in what regards? should read this article...

so since i know longer have more responses left i'll see you all in another thread but as i see it, my claims are very well IS an evil empire and has been for a very long time...the only reason Darth Vader isn't their mascot is because they would have to pay George Lucas a boatload of money. and we all know they don't give money, they take it.
