Well, the PSN is back up and running. Let's see how long it takes for someone to tear it down again. The hacker group anonymous has already promised that they will do so once service is restored.
Please god no!
We may never know what type of network Sony has now. These dudes can try and Hack Sony's network and get caught this time around. If they notice a weakness before hopefully Sony's new network would scare them off this time around.
Who ever attacked Sony will defiantly try again and all those people wishing they attacked Sony will try. Its a new system someone is going to try
... like developers who are DLC-scamming/milking us.
Yeah I was thinking Sony has to be on extra high alert right now and for at least a month. They might even step it up around E3. Anyone that bothers trying will be tracked fast and hunted down. I hope the original hackers are so stupid they try it again. Come knocking on the door of a company already searching to shoot their brains out.
@iamnsuperman I don't know. The people who did this are looking at plenty of jail time for this. If they had any common sense at all, they'd stay as hidden as possible and not draw attention to themselves, especially knowing Sony will be watching PSN like a hawk, and will be out for blood if anyone even attempts something. I'm sure some moron kids will try something in the name of Anonymous, but I doubt they are bright enough to do anything truly effective.
naah..anon can now leave PSN alone, their mission has been accomplished, even if they wanted to repeat, it wouldn't be the same kind of breaching...they're not dumb rats
I don't think they could now, the way they hacked the PSN the first time was a fluke that there was a hole in the security, doubt there is one now!
if they are caught I say try them under Iranian law, which means their hands would get chopped off. How you like this hack you losers? muahahahahahahahahha
noooooooooooooooooooooooo FUCK YOU ANONYMOUS!! I WANNA PLAY ONLINE!!
If Anonymous take down the Playstation Network, I'll have to personally meet them, and knock'm out...
im going to rip off their heads and shit down there neck...Ballss of steel
Im gonna take the mothers out for a nice sea food dinner and never call them back.
WTF!! thats BULLSH'T we waited this fking long for them to screw it up again not on my dead body sheeeee-it!
i am going to kill them if they do
These guys are nothing but a bunch of 360 fanboys they claim its because of other OS but through hacks people have got other OS back so what's the problems exactly?? They like hacks so why not use the hack to re-enable it?? Because they are BS'ing that's not the real reason they hate the fact PS3 is finally over taking 360 worldwide (I doubt it will ever overtake in the USA well done MS!). They can't take it. Fanboys are the scum of the universe if they go to these kind of lengths...
I perhaps wouldn't say they are just 360 fanboys. But its definitely nothing to do with other OS, its a vendetta against Sony, pure and simple. I just wish they would attack Sony in other ways that don't effect gamers! Seriously, leave us alone, go and mess about with Sony music or something and leave gamers in peace!
Hi, I have no proof that any of annon is based around 360 fan boys but Im going to base my argument on that. Really?
If anything they need to hack you and your conspiracy theories. Sucks for gamers to go through this (and needs to stop)but fanboys like you I could give a [email protected]!
Anonymous him/herself said they will not, but with all that has been happening to them highly think so. They have the FBI to worry about.
there is a special level of hell reserved for the hackers.
OH GOD OH GOD I HOPE NOT!
I seriously hope not, thats gona suck!
Ahhhh! NO NOT OUR PSN! NOT AGAIN!
leave us ps3 gamers alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tell me about it almost 1 month without gaming!
1 month without gaming? We survived and there is plenty to do, but it sure is an inconvenience. I personally missed all my PSN Friends.
Leave the gamers alone hackers and move on to better targets like walmart.
Hahaha, yeah we dont deserve it! But what on Earth would hacking Walmart accomplish haha?
Walmart probably has more credit card numbers, emails, and information than PSN and Xbox Live combined lol But your messing with a lot of rednecks if you do that :P (no im not calling all walmart shoppers rednecks calm down)
@Soldierone Haha, I didnt actually know that about Walmart. All I know about Walmart is what I seen in South Park, I have nothing like it down here in Australia!
they didn't hack Sony to get CCinfo. they did it because Sony started this bullshit by going after geohot and other hackers. sony is too arrogant, they pissed off the wrong people. if they're not careful it will happen again.
I think whatever measures Sony have taken to protect the PSN itself will more than likely be enough to stop this bunch. They would be crazy to have not completely upgraded thier security in all fields.
Fucking no lifers...
Certainly hope they fail! Like Blitz said, get a life!
I hope so as well, do well sony dont let it happen again
walmart is just a joke. and it won't bother me if they mess with walmart so yeah walmart
Fucking doubt it these losers have turned on each other to save there own asses.
Why the gaming media still insisting on giving those guys spotlight
LEAVE SONY ALONE ...LOEAVE IT ALONE :@ OR ILL SMASH UR HEDZ IN
If they do, then they are the worst enemies a gamer could have. Yeah right. You're "really" on our side ¬¬'
enough is enough. you made your point and gamers didn't benefit the first time around. put that brain to good use. better yet hack the Illuminati.
I'd imagine after this fiasco Sony has added online banking level security to the servers.
online banking levels of security are not as sophisticated as you think http://www.dailymail.co.uk/...
Mikelarry, That was an example of a trojan that ran on users' computers to log their keystrokes and log into the online bank legitimately. This is obviously a far more effective way of getting credit card details than hacking into the system itself where the data are all encrypted by these passwords anyway.
What you reference was a key logging program. Directly from that article you posted In the vast majority of cases, if people had kept their computer's operating systems and software such as Internet Explorer up to date they would not have been attacked,' he said. The bank servers were never breached. And like thor said, I'm sure everything is encrypted to the max now.
i agree to a certain point but what i was trying to point out is that hackers always have a way to get into any system through trojan or other means, the security system in place are man made no security system is perfect
Oh I agree with that. But no low level hackers are going to get into that. It would have to be an elite professional hacker to crack one of those open.
stop tempting fate...do not make up these stupid articles again...post something positive from now on, we've been hijacked long enough by these vandals. It's just not cool or anything, anymore.
Hackers > Sony. I'm pretty sure that is well established by now.
you are correct sir
bah why not hack activision and comletley ruin them i mean they tick all the boxes those greedy $%&*
this should be one time NOOOO! one should get disagrees unless they are a DAMN hacker themself.
Didn't they have an internal attack on themselves today? One of their former members unleashed a similar attack on their own work. Either way, it's up to them to make a conscious decision, whether they want to attack a company, or the people. By attacking the community, it negates their argument against Sony. If they had a real problem, they should have taken it up with Consumer Affairs.
Look at the one member disagreeing with every comment, rofl. Maybe if you actually said something, you wouldn't look like such an inane, uneducated 15 year old bro.
They've done enough damage and there going through a civil war at the moment. I hope they just leave us alone.
certainly there seems to be a lot more than worrying about Sony going on at Anon right now with all the splinter groups ,doxing and infighting going on. Funny how the first thing they did when they fell out with "Ryan" was to release ALL his details including full name and address on the net-how quickly would they grass each other up if they were faced by a couple of FBI agents FFS!? Seconds rather than minutes I reckon. Biggest worry, in my eyes, is if the trry and hack it and leave someone's details in there to frame them like they tried with the Deus Ex hack this week on SE. Didn't they leave "Ryan's" hacker ID all over that in a bid to get him shit? Even so HE is just a seventeen year old kid from Essex-just makes you wonder at who the rest of these ego maniacs are, doesn't it?
Never underestimate the determination of people who have ABSOLUTELY nothing better to do. Someone will try it again, of course. I just hope Sony can detect them earlier next time. The only question I have is whether or not the keys Geohot put online definitely had something to do with the hackers getting in. If so, that should shut up all the people who said Sony shouldn't have sued him.
there is going to be some serious fuking raids in these guys' basements if they decide to do this again
Its a free-world im sure if they see an oppritunity they will take it again. But everyone knows what will happen An all out war will happen Gamers+Sony vs Anonymous Both sides may win too.
@ ps3fanboy thats for damn sure i'll be one of them.
I'd be quite happy if the hackers got the death penalty. :)
Na just send them to Missouri jails for life. Internet access is limited and monitored(as in a guard watches you during your internet time.) And video games of any sort are prohibited. That would be worse then death for them.
Hopefully they will choke to death on there twinkie whilst trying to hack PSN. Or maybe a rat (that is living in there room, attracted to all the twinkie wrappers & crumbs), a big ass rat,......a big fat ass rat,..... a big fat ass nasty ass rat will nibble one of his/her toes off whilst they are trying to hack into new psn, & even though they visit Docs & get tetnus shot.....it fails to stop this new disease & said hacker slowly mutates into a half human, half rat form, & is fat & nasty & smelly, never has showers, never has social interaction, lives off any old leftovers or garbage lying round, dwells in there underground cave at granny's house.........Actually, this sounds like those hackers to a tea, except they do not have the redeeming quality of being mixed with the looks of the far superior looking rat.
Stop making senseless Articles about them for a start. They get a rise from there notirity. Again another exsample of a website looking hits. There a pack of good for nothing idiots looking the adtention they did'nt get as children. I ain't got no time for them.
aren't they having internal problems or something?
I am gonna shoot some anon piece of crap.
The problem is Anon's name. They do have supporters. Some of us used to be those people. But I can commit a crime and say I did it under the anonymous umbrella. The real anonymous needs to make themselves an official recognized entity under a different name, with a clear understanding of rules, membership and leadership. They need to separate themselves from the criminals, remove the masks, yes the masks this isnt a movie, its cute and yes you can still gain support and ddos in protest without a mask and be in your legal right. Without all that, their name is going to get blamed for just about every cybercrime known to the world in the next 2 years and they will be punished and made examples of. And all for because some ahat committed a crime in the anon name, he/they could do that because the anon leaderless cell thing is stupid and only impressive in the movies. I don't trust people I know, what makes them think i trust some schmuck in a mask?
Que death threatz from internet tough guys. Let's hope Sony's upped the security a little.
If Anonymous has nothing better to do why don't they hack the oil company's and lower the price of gas around the world.
Why encourage it by highlighting it time and time again. Poor article.
