Anonymous, the hacker group that steals credit card information to donate to charitable organisations, has sent this message to Sony Entertainment for supporting the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).
It has come to the attention of the Anonymous activist community that you have chosen to stand by the Stop Online Piracy Act. This act will halt online businesses and restrict access to many sites for many users. Supporting SOPA is like trying to throw an entire company from off a bridge. Your support to the act is a signed death warrant to SONY Company and Associates.
Therefore, yet again, we have decided to destroy your network. We will dismantle your phantom from the internet. Prepare to be extinguished. Justice will be swift, and it will be for the people, whether some like it or not. Sony, you have been warned.
The whole issue with SOPA is that if the bill is passed it would allow the United States government and large corporations to control/blacklist censored websites on their networks. In other words, if there’s a site that shows content they do not approve of they could expunge it.
It’s an interesting message Anonymous has sent out to be sure, but it was never confirmed that the first PSN outage was caused by the group. To say “yet again, we have decided to destroy your network” assumes they did it before. Is this trolling or just a slip by the group itself? You decide.Anonymous Sends a Message to Sony,
