Anonymous sends video message to Sony, targets staff

Tuesday, 5 April 2011 15:27 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Hacking group Anonymous has launched a video confirming that it has launched attacks against websites on Sony and PlayStation.

In a movie, released last night, the group said that attacks would continue on its websites and services – PlayStation Store is mentioned in the clip – until Anonymous was “completely satisfied” it has achieved its aims.

It said in the video statement: “It has come to our attention that you have decided to interfere in the free flow of information. We will not stand for this.

“You have abused your customers for obtaining and using jailbreak software. Now you will feel the wrath of anonymous.

“These attacks will continue until we are completely satisfied with the outcome. We do not forgive greedy companies. We do not forgive the denial of the free flow of information.”

The attacks are reprisals for ongoing legal action against George “Geohot” Hotz, who revealed PS3′s main serial key earlier this year, as well as another hacker known as Graf_Chokolo.

The video mentions the decision recently that let Sony subpoena Hotz’s PayPal records to see who had made donations to him for his hacks, as well as a list of people who’d visited his site.

PlayStation Network went down overnight for sporadic maintenance, which suggested that Anonymous was somehow affecting PSN.

Anonymous made its declaration against Sony on early Monday morning.

You can watch the video below.

    This seems a bit amateurish and they do seem intent on attacking the US side and use a US reference (I don’t think a lot of people actually watch the daily show outside of the US – I mean it’s an E4 show here iirc…)

    It’s not really hard to use these facts to pretty much get leads on finding out who they are. I will admit that, if they do get caught it’ll pretty much be like the Alan Cumming reaction in the awful remake of Get Carter.

    Like I’ve always said there’s wrong on every side but this is just stupid and not going to win them many friends. If Sony pretty much stays quiet and don’t go after them officially, they can play the victim card and a good percentage of the consumers and law enforcement would mostly be on their side. I don’t really see it working out well for Anon in the long term – this isn’t a fictional dystopia.

    #28 i dont know if you playing with me, but believe me when i said this is not the way to do the things neither, i feel bad for this, as i feel bad for the consumers that were affected by the other s issue, i just hope sony understand now what i believe was a mistake, not giving the proper support to consumers, at least compensate them with free movies on netflix or games i dont know, act like you care about them, not give the back and look somewhere else, so in the end this is a chain reaction that gave a excuse for all this things. sadly so, but i hope sony will realize this an move on so the ps4 doesnt have this issues, again i hope you are not making fun of me sometimes is hard to tell when people are been sarcastic.***shrouds***

    P.D Who is Thomas Nordvedt? that flew me over, this will only be affecting the consumers, what a contradiction to anonymous i hope they find another way to boycott sony is that what they want

    “If video games are such a huge part of your life that a day of not being able to play a game online actually affects you in some sort of negative fashion… you seriously need to get off the computer.”

    Holy shit O’Connor. You continue to be the biggest twat on the internet. The irony of a statement denouncing videogames for being a “huge part of your life” from someone who spends most of his time commenting on here and running a terrible website about video games is killing me.

    People can be annoyed if they want to be – whether it’s because they can’t play a computer game they bought, or they’ve discovered their new shirt has a hole in it and they can’t wear it to a party as a result.

    Stop being such a dick. I guarantee you’ve been annoyed with a videogame that wasn’t working in the past. How the fuck have you managed to climb onto a high horse on this subject? Fuck off. Flounce away. Leave. Everybody hates you.

    “Everyone hates you.”

    Nope. Just a handful of trolls hate me. Proof sitting right there in the forum thread that in fact, a lot more people here than even I thought actually think I’m perfectly fine.

    An egomaniac lecturing someone about being an egomaniac. What irony. It’s hard not to laugh my ass off at you. You’re comedy gold.

    I spend a lot of time here? I’m one of the less frequent posters. O.o And I don’t run any website, so I’m not sure what you’re on about there.

    And nope, I’ve never been annoyed at a game, or a service. Shit happens.

    #34 4 years ago
  35. TerryWogan

    You seem to be annoyed at this service right now. You’ve even made physical threats. A genuine threat to break someone’s nose. It wouldn’t be too difficult for that person to demand your IP address and have you arrested for assault, you know?

  36. Hunam

    I don’t think you can demand IP addresses willy nilly in the UK/Ireland like you can in the US can you?

    #36 4 years ago
  37. TerryWogan

    Oh, and before you say anything, you might want to do a little bit of research into the law on the subject. Start with R v Constanza (1997) and work your way through the cases. You’ll find that a threat, in text format, over any sort of telecommunications device can indeed be assault.

  38. TerryWogan

    “I don’t think you can demand IP addresses willy nilly in the UK/Ireland like you can in the US can you?”

    Your lawyer can. Not that you’d need one – the mods are dishing them out for fun in the forums (to O’Connor).

    It actually raises some serious issues with regards to privacy and data protection laws that Pat might be interested in. The mods need to understand what they’re getting themselves into when they’re posting personal information on the forums because some tosspot asked for it.

    I definitely don’t remember wavering my rights to data protection under the Data Protection Act when I registered.

    #38 4 years ago
  39. Ireland Michael

    Hahaha! Oh Terry, you are entertaining.

    I was annoyed at the way O.G. was acting, not VG247.

    This might surprise you, but some of these individuals are actually my friends outside of this website. You know, seeing as how “everyone” hates me and all. Hahahaha!

    #39 4 years ago
  40. TerryWogan

    Eh? Friends in real life is completely irrelevant. If anyone is going to get into trouble for the mods posting personal IP information on the forums, it’s Pat. The Data Protection Act prohibits this sort of behaviour and I’d seriously recommend the mods involved remove that data. The website owner is responsible for all personal information given to him in good faith. Granted, accidents happen and data is occasionally leaked – it’s in the news all the time – but deliberately dishing information out to members of your forums is a huge, huge, HUGE no-no.

    There isn’t a waver or anything when someone signs up to the site, so Pat would have very little defence. Obviously the mods have made the decision to publish the info without Pat’s knowledge (as far as I can tell), but as site owner he would still be responsible. Or the Eurogamer network.

    Second, you really can’t go around making physical threats to people on the internet any more. That’s what you’d be getting into trouble for.

    #40 4 years ago
  41. Ireland Michael

    I highly doubt anyone cares about it that much.

    I never asked for anyone’s IP address, by the way. That was Mike’s idea. I simply asked O.G. to reveal the previous username of the trolls involves.

    And again, you can understand to the difference between threatening someone and simply telling them what I would do if they acted a certain way towards me in person.

    on topic: i think their argument is flawed, you CAN do whatever you want with your PS3, just don’t use PSN. As for Geohot, he made himself an easy target and sony are using him as a escape-goat, big deal, they will settle somewhere along the line…

  55. OlderGamer

    This isn’t as wide spread as it might seem ManuOtaku. Most of the time this is a great site with a great community. But for whatever reason there is a small group of posters that seem to have it out for Michael.

    For a while Michael was ignoring them. But a man has limits, I prolly would have cracked long ago if I wear him. So now we get this kind of crap. And it seems to never stop. Personal attacks. People making duel accounts for the sole purpose personal attacks.

    The lot of them sound like a bickering bunch of school age kids at a play ground. But when a sane man begins to argue with a crazy man, people watching will soon lose sight of which one is which.

    Its frustrating to myself and a couple of other mods, because we really can’t do anything about it. And it often goes too far. Its a distraction on the site that we all otherwise enjoy.

    I want everyone to enjoy their time here, w/o having to put up with personal attacks made against them.

    How about without having to put up with having their personal information dished out by “mods” like you? Sort it out – it’s fucking illegal.

    And let’s face it. O’Connor can’t argue without bringing out the personal insults or calling someone stupid. He’s a total arsehole. I don’t troll him and this isn’t a sockpuppet account. This is me, arguing with an arsehole. I don’t follow him around and call him names. I’m calling him out on being an arsehole in this comments thread and the forum today. Is that not within my rights? Or should we just let arseholes be arseholes?

    Maybe so many people “pick on him” for a reason?

    I am done talking to you about this.

    I’m talking about the mods generally. Sort it out. It’s in that “O’Connor is a nice guy” thread. Remove the offending stuff. People shouldn’t be getting bullied into being careful about what they say lest they have their personal information posted by a fucking moderator.

    And that’s ignoring the legal implications.

    O.G., I haven’t “snapped”. Hahaha. I’m finding this whole thing goddamn hilarious. Just… the fact that these people seem so committed and would invest so much energy into disliking a random person on the internet. It’s laughable.

    I know exactly *what* causes it with most, mind you. People don’t like blunt honesty. Us Irish don’t have much qualms about that one. The kind of things the average Irish person would say to each other are the sorts of things that would have people in certain other countries *cough*USA*cough* up in the right old tissy about.

    And probably suing others for. =P

    Fuck political correctness. The best quality anyone can have is honesty.

    There’s a difference between honesty and just being an outright twat. Often, you really are just an outright twat. Seriously. I’m not trolling or trying to wind you up – you’re a fucking horrible person. Often.

    “If video games are such a huge part of your life that a day of not being able to play a game online actually affects you in some sort of negative fashion… you seriously need to get off the computer.”

    This ^^

    This is an example of you just being a twat. You’re on a video games website. Of course people care about this sort of thing. The worst part is the guy responds a few posts later and has to clarify he was being sarcastic, because you made him feel like a twat for caring about computer games. That is the work of a total twat.

    And unfortunately it’s typical of your behaviour on this site. And I’m not the only one who notices it, it seems.

    My problem is with the journalistic integrity of this site… I think more often then not they invent drama in the article in order to encourage arguements. Got to keep those comment logs long! For example… on the other Sony article involving, “sporadic maintence”. I believe that quote was created by the author. I never found any other article or a release from Sony using that term. Yet, the term was clearly used in order to spark debate and fanboy syndrome. They made it seem like Sony was lying and making excuses in order to fuel the rage. And many reponses took advantage of it. This site does crap like that at all the time… and when they see a clever “hate” comment, they are not unknown for editing the article and its title to reflect that comment. It is obnoxious and getting old. I really just want a site to get honest, unbiased game news.

    DJ I think you prolly just described most of the game sites out there. But spot on observation.

    And maybe we, as visitors, want that in our website. At least to some degree. We all have a passion for games, and I don’t know about you guys, but my wife tunes me out when I get to rolling about gaming. She is a trooper, and hangs in there for a bit, but after awhile …. ZZZZ

    So I come here. Listen to me or not, it gives me a place to blow off steam and rant about MS or Sony or whatever. So maybe we are guilty by posting so much and fueling those sly worded headlines?

    @ O.G. thank you, I can agree with that. But, this one seems to do it to an unprecedented, obnoxious degree. Everytime I turn my head an article has changed. It is getting old fast and I think I will go on the prowl for a new site soon. The only real draw this site had was the 24/7 part.

  69. TerryWogan

    @67 It’s a perfect example of his “honesty”. Read: bigoted bully. I honestly can’t believe the mods stick up for him, but I guess they’re all chums or something. He claims to have real life friends involved with the site, so that’s probably why he’s coming away as the victim here, despite being a fucking horrible bully pretty much all of the time.

    I. Don’t. Care. I’m a dick to people who, as far as I’m concerned, I think don’t deserve any better.

    I never said I had real life friends involved with the site. I said I am friends with some of the members here outside of the community.

    Publicising IP addresses is a pretty obvious internet no-no. And if you don’t appreciate the implications of it then you have no right to be in a position to snoop on other’s private details, even less if you lack the maturity and go off and publicise them for others to see. It’s astonishingly irresponsible and regarded the internet-wide as an abuse of information.

    No matter who or what reason, you just don’t do it. And if you do you’re simply not trustworthy or responsible.

    See, I’m happy for this to be the case. You’re a twat. You don’t care. But why are the mods sticking up for him and dishing out IP addresses at his whimsy? Seriously – Pat could land himself in hot water over this.

    Not that I give a rats ass about this debate… but Michael, weren’t you bragging that you were friends with Steph outside the confines of this website? Which she is my least favorite author, but that is off topic. Also, off topic, but is she hot?

  76. Ireland Michael

    God, you’re an idiot.

    I didn’t ask them to give me any IP addresses, you dumb fuck. I asked them to *check* them to see if they matched anyone. You are seriously fucking braindead?

    Mike posted that information of his own accord. I was as surprised as anyone else when he posted it. Though I probably would have done the same in his shoes, just to teach that person a lesson.

    @Deathjynx, I am not dragging other people into this.

    And that question about Steph is just fucking disrespectful.

    #79, well i prefer sony internalize this, as a series of events that started with the Other S application issue, and this was used as excuse to do the things Geo did, that in the end lead to anonymous thing, in order to come up with a better console development cycle for the PS4, therefore they think hard and good what should be in and out of the console, and lastly that when they do encounter a mistake, made by sonys actions like this case, well at least pretend been concerned and try to compensated the affected users, like giving free movies,free games and free plus subscription or whatever, just do something in order to solve the problem, do not look the other way around.

    I think that if people want to otherOS back then they should be given the ability to downgrade their OS to an earlier release but also lose all of the extra stuff Sony has put into the firmware for the system, there were a lot of things that weren’t available and not included with the original release. Like the the use of Netflix, VidZone, VUDU, Catch Up TV, Mubi, Life with PlayStation, PlayStation Home, Stereoscopic 3D, BRAVIA Sync XMB control, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio bitstreaming, updated internet browser with Facebook/Youtube apps and not to forget swapping HDD’s without having to go onto the official Sony site with a PC and downloading it to a thumbdrive/memory card. If the logic is that if Sony takes away a feature that they owe everyone money than shouldn’t we have to pay Sony for letting use all of the new stuff? I am a gamer and I don’t really care about an other OS feature and I went with the PS3 because of the reliability of the system, ability to swap hdd’s, internet browser, free PSN, Wifi, ability to use any bluetooth/keyboard/mouse and a whole lot of other things that don’t pertain to the core gaming experience. Try getting that from Microsoft. When it comes down to it you can never make everyone happy, you spend the money on the system that is advertised to have another OS feature then you should be able to use it regardless if it is pointless (my guess is that 99% of the people who whine about the loss of the feature have a PC/Mac that is a far better computer anyways). But when people start to exploit that then there is an issue. Sony isn’t just protecting themselves with the lawsuits they are protecting the publishers from piracy. If nobody did anything to stop piracy then it would be so rampant that studios would go under or they would just raise the price of the games. Tell me then who would suffer in that scenario? The people who just want to play/make video games and enjoy themselves would not the small percent of the users that want to steal their content. If I were running Linux on any one of my PS3′s I would be pissed at FailOverflow and Geohot for ruining it for everyone, they pissed off the giant and now everyone has to sit in timeout. Thanks a lot hackers. Cant a gamer just buy a system and enjoy it?
