This came after graf_chokolo has said in a statement that he may go to a prison for reverse engineered the PS3 as well as his effort to bring back OtherOS to the PS3. graf_chokolo's lawsuit news here: http://www.tantaicbs.com/gr...
These hackers are really starting to become a joke sooner or later they're gonna slip up and when they do don't expect mercy.But i hope Sony takes this serious.
A joke as in hacking over 10 companies in a month?
They're not a joke and I think Sony should be careful. I was really worried about the future of the Playstation brand after the last hack (maybe because the gaming media blew it out of proportion). But I'm not sure they can make it out of a second one. Who cares about this choko guy. He hasn't caused much damage and isn't worth it. I don't want Sony to go bankrupt! Y_Y
That was days after setting up the phone line. When they start to do real life stuff it's a different story as you can't do things without some ID or details being passed onto companies etc
Damn I hate stupid Hackers!!! I loved having "other OS" on my PS3. Windows emulator was awesome. Playing Gears of War on my PS3 was pretty sweet!!! Oh well.
No. A joke because they don't care about anyone but themselves and don't care about the consequences to others. Like I've said in the past. They are fascist the Nazis of our age.
Why hack why?
... and so it begins again. I hope Sony is better prepared this time! Especially after claiming their network is more secure than ever just recently.
*sigh* You never quit do you?
No public network is 100% secure, sadly.
@ DragonKnight: He doesn't have to quit because he isn't bashing the 360, ergo he won't get bubbles taken away...
Hackers Against Gamers Hackers may have an advantage overseas, but their fish out of water on when I'm in your area.
Hacks first then games. :)
YEEEAAAH thats right Beastgamer, tell'em! if them hackers come and play black ops, me and beastgamer will beat the crap out of them!!!.
I hope that the person that wrote this also goes to prison so that the guys in their can play with his buttocks.
Is that really what you would like to see happen?
i hope all these hackers get caught and sent to jail for a long time it wasnt funny the first time when i couldnt play for a about a month, and is not funny this time
GOD DAM F**** so fedup with this s***t just read the article its a friiken joke they talk the talk. yeh well stop hiding behind ur computers face us the gamers see if you can walk the walk. there punishing or trying to punish us the gamers as well as sony. This has really gota stop. i hope the security they invested at least can track there foot prints even if they get threw.
the have already proven the fact they are bunch of geeks who may still live in their parents basements. they say they stand for gamers well how the fuck when i can use my online service standing in my corner? I am extremely sorry about the language but someone needs to find these morons and put them behind bars. now they just want attention sony is more than ready and prepared for these morons. That's why i have always said since the psn issues its not about xbox360 or ps3 when it comes to this issue it can happen to any of the console makers and will affect us all. stand together on this as gaming community and show these guys they are nothing more than attention whores
There are more gamers living with their parents than hackers. Hackers are ambitious and actually go out and work.
These "Hackers" are a joke...there is no way that these terds can do anything...the first time Sony wasn't prepared...they can't do it again....ever......those that fear it shouldn't.....they say another attack is coming, but that is complete BS......here is a Challenge to the "Hackers"....do it again....I dare ya :) Prove you can do it you terds.
I want Infamous 2 and the God of War collection for my welcome back package this time Sony. ;)
Yes, there is a plan attack on Sony every other day now. We get it.
Your avatar looks like an awesome face! I'm gonna give you a bubble if that's the impression you were going for.
Well, maybe Graf will have some company.
That letter was non-sense. If you don't know English then write in your native language and have someone translate for pete sake.
-Whoops, clicked the wrong link.
I've done that a couple of times. I hate it when I do that lol.
ok...now lets try in English. . .go
What an absolute joke. They would have hacked the network by now and not wait until graf went to jail. That would be an absolute waste of graf's time and money.
I couldn't get past the second paragraph, it's pretty hard to read...It makes my head hurt.
"we a nice script for this" Ummmm huh? Isa a spreaking engrish? Hahahah
What gets me the most, the majority of these hackers swear Sony is the most "hated" company because they are protecting their investment and their customers. I swear if these hackers put their efforts towards something more positive customers wouldn't be as pissed off towards them and everyone can enjoy their games. There's a lot of things I don't like; I'm not gonna go start hacking just to risk jail time just to say "look I did it!" and "I hate you so much I stole data I'm gonna sell to the black market for $0"
I agree. They are only butt hurt over Sony because he told them no. I just proves how childish these people are.You would swear Sony is sacrificing babies to Satan the way everyone goes on about it. Someone threatened their investments they stood up and fought back and for some reason is constantly punished for that by everyone. Ever noticed Sony is usually hated by the most ignorant and unreasonable people.All this crap is just a launching pad of excuses to do wrong things. It has nothing to do with Sony fighting back. It's about trying to soothe their bruised egos.They have some nerve trying to sound as if they were just sitting there and Sony just got mad for no reason at all
Protecting their investment. I can see that if they didn't take people's rights. At least here in the States. What they did was wrong. Plain and simple. No glossing that one over.
F him and them I hope he goes to jail so that the hackers get reckless, the more reckless they get the more cocky and sloppy they get. We hope some of you get exposed and live in the bronx, some of us out here would love to reach out and .... hmmm... discuss a few things with you.....
my reaction to this article http://www.youtube.com/watc... please hackers dont do this for the love of steve carell!!!
this is just getting sad now.
hackers = basement butt hurt dwellers. hope sony can do something before they take action
What if I , and the majority of the ps3 owner's , just want to play with there consoles !?
Good point. Why do we as gamers have to be the toilet in this political bullshit? These guy take themselves too seriously. We want to play videogames and they think the world is going to end if people pay for their crimes. How about let the guy be a man and accept the punishment of his crime. This isn't going to change anyones mind and pissing off the masses is only going to get them strung up. I feel like there is a better way to voice your decent than attacking people who have nothing to do with your issues. Thats like punching a guy on the street cuz the girl I slept with the night before jacked my wallet. It doesn't help anything and it only gets me stuck in jail.
A friend of mine has said that hackers now have turned on this Taliban-like mentality and could care less about the collateral damage. They are not thinking in the long term at all. Future attacks on businesses are going to ramp up global government efforts to tone down internet rights. Even more so if they are successful and can take down a corporation like Sony. When it comes to courts, who is going to get the better protection: corporate entities that handle billions or the hackers that handle themselves for the "lulz"?
Dead omn-been sayng the same thing for ages and the fact nobody seems to be getti g caught just makes me MORE conbcerned about this-itb SUITS the US and UK governments if the hackers don't get caught asm , following wikileaks they bioth want our internet clozssed right down and tightened up to an unrecognisable state. I would imagine there are security experts and the FBI/MI5 laughing themselves silly and not trying to catch anyone responsible(maybe THEY did it to justify them, in the future, taking all our rights away?)just so the majority of Joe blows out there think it'#s OK when they come for our REAL internet freedoms. Everything will be traced and monitored or you won't get online. Things will be very black and white from then on in-if they can use the loose state of the internet for not bringing these tools to justice bet on everything changing for the worse and you would imagine that is exactly what these hackers want least, would you not? I'm very concerned about where the governments will take this.
Why are hackers angry that Graf might get sent away? HE WANTS TO GO TO PRISON! He said it himself... http://ps3crunch.com/grafch... He doesn't care. Why should anyone else?
Very simple: these hackers need ANY excuse to hate on Sony (or any other company, but Sony in particular). No matter how small, no matter how stupid, if there's any little crap excuse to "get back" at Sony, they will use it to their advantage.
The more they do this the more governments are going to have to get involved. I understand that they feel offended by Sony but they're only digging their own graves. They might get away with it a few more times but one slip up and they're entire team could follow the same fate. This is becoming more and more an international problem that will bring itself massive penalties. How can someone rationalize jail time for hacking? I mean, if you gotta steal to eat thats one thing but these guys are risking they're freedom for something that might not even work out or bring their cause any recognition. @below: Well said. lol
"How can someone rationalize jail time for hacking?" because they're spoiled brats with a bloated sense of entitlement.
Obama is trying to pass a law that would allow to double maximum sentence of what's already in place. 10 years becomes 20 years for national security stuff. Simple computer hacking would go from 5 to 10 years.
Sweetness!!! Send their spoiled @$$es to jail. Maybe they'll think twice about these pointless hacks.
obama has alot of nut job ideas no one takes it serious -_-
I hope Amazon learned and won't allow to lend their server to John Smith or Harold Nobhody like they did last time. What a rookie move.
I never knew Sony had the ability to send people to jail. I thought that was something only governments could do! Stupid people...
These hackers have the intellectual and emotional maturity of the common 12 year old girl. Their tantrums are and will continue to be meaningless. They're just digging their own graves
and so the war on gamers continues. hackers biggest dumbasses ever. you want to blackmail them into submission? Why? so you can keep hacking and get away with it? Not gonna happen.
What if Sony is just waiting for another attack? They still have all those security companies working for them just waiting to try and track these SOBs? Who knows right....
Yeah, but if they are successful, it will be devastating for Sony.
Hey hackers, stop this stupid hacking at once.
Title is very misleading. No where in the article does it mention another hack attack on Sony is imminent.
@snaz there was no 9-11 conspiracy. towers came down because of extremely hot jet fuel flowing down metal... and what does metal do when its heated? well chemistry tells you it expands, and becomes more brittle... lets put this into consideration. We have a 100+ story building with old steel beams, and weighing over 100 tons,.. hm i wonder wat would happen to the infastructure when all that fuel is gushing out like no tomorrow. More importantly, you can actually see where the floors collapsed (where the planes hit, and near the bottom which holds for support). im no architect, but this is the jist. Moreover, the only information that the government did not release, which was later found out, was that this attacked had been planned many years before already.
Do research the actual metal used, and the temperature of the fuel. You'll see there's no way that the jet fuel would have melted that particular type of steel.
no not melted, expand, and thats more than enough to collapse a tall building.
Not in the case of the WTC, it would take metal distortion, not expansion to bring it down. The steel in the WTC was made to withstand temperatures over 1000 degrees Celsius, the jet fuel burned at about 850 degrees Celsius. While that was enough to reduce the steel's strength to about 50%, that's still enough to withstand the impact. The common explanation is that the temperature and heat was not uniform across the structure and the different temperatures caused distortion where one area was weaker than another area and that caused the collapse. HOWEVER, that doesn't explain the presence of Thermite. Thermite is used specifically for demolition purposes and wouldn't be used as any part of jet fuel (a jet would explode if it had thermite in the fuel, or the fuel tanks would melt right away) so how can one say that a tower designed to withstand more than what the jet dished out was brought down by the jet?
DragonKnight, Please don't regurgitate the thermite bullcrap. Thermite has NEVER been used to demolish ANY buildings, EVER. Thermite is a mixture of iron oxide and aluminium. Both VERY VERY common substances, so no wonder someone got confused and thought it was present at the WTC. It is used to produce an extremely high temperature reaction to e.g. weld train tracks together. It's not an explosive. Demolitions are performed with explosives. There is no evidence to suggest the feasibility of demolishing a building with "experimental nano-thermite" and the government must have been very brave indeed to try out such an experimental technology to bring down the WTC instead of you know, flying planes into the buildings.
Thor: Where did I say thermite was an explosive? I said it would explode inside fuel, because it would. Fuel is a combustible. Thermite melts steel and other metals by exposing an area to intense heat and has many applications, one of which is a type of demolition. Look it up if you don't believe me. Thermite can bring down a structure by melting through the beams in enough concentrations. And although iron oxide and aluminum are, on their own, common materials; how often are they found together in fuels or structures? But whatever, we likely won't come to an agreement about this.
Not exactly. Optimum Flame Temperature of Propane 3500°F, yet your grill doesn't melt or collapse when you BBQ. If you believe Jet fuel can demolish a building with the precision of a demolition team, you must be stupid. The WTC dropped at freefall speed (which only happens during demolition) and had a precise straight line drop. Same as Tower 7. I have watched many demolitions, real life and videos, and what happened on 9/11 looked no different.
A recent study was conducted (by a company independent of any government) which placed metal joists similar to those used in the WTC overtop of a burning pool of jet fuel while supporting a proportional weight. The joists melted, buckled and failed even faster than those in the WTC on 9/11. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Furthermore, a panel composed of several of the worlds top demolishioners who all said there is absolutely nothing that they perceive that would lead them to believe the Towers were brought down with explosives. In fact, they thought the premise was laughable. Also, despite what you say the buildings did not free fall. If they did than how is it that debris is falling faster than the building itself? I'm not saying there wasn't more to 9/11 or totally discounting all your conspiracy theories. I'm just suggestIng you shouldn't believe everything you see or read.
But then Firefighters have said the heard many explosions in WTC. Watch this for Tower 7, http://www.youtube.com/watc... Eye witnesses did say they heard explosions. Its after, I mean, Way after, people started denying it, Why? Because of the Government.
People are so dumb these days... Their CAUSES don't even make sense anymore! So, you're gonna go to jail because a company that sold you a system said that you couldn't hack into their network? WTF IS REALLY WRONG WITH YOU!? THERE IS NO CAUSE. You are breaking what is known as the "Terms Of Agreement" THAT YOU ACCEPT when you sign onto PSN. TAKE SOME TIME TO READ THEM. Also, I understand that this guy may not have the intention of stealing personal info, or raiding servers with hacked software, but that's what you open the community up to when you do what he is doing. JUST STOP. YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE EVERYONE ELSE SUFFER FOR YOU "Believes" SMH!
