“Hackers on steroids” group Anonymous recently declared war on Sony for their legal action taken against George Hotz, a.k.a. Geohot. They already began their attack by doing multiple distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS) to Sony’s various Playstation websites as well as the Playstation Store.
However, it seems that a small group broke away from the larger group, called OpSony. This smaller group, named SonyRecon, is attacking Sony on a more personal level. The creator of SonyRecon, a user named randomtask, announced the formation of his new group on the OpSony IRC.
ok i made a chan #sonyrecon for people to gather and contribute dox, and work towards a common goal of finding and information and detailing useful targets
some one got the phone number of the head of the sony company in #sonyrecon
“Dox” refers to any type of personal information that one can use for fraud or other malicious activities involving someone’s identity. randomtask also added:
sony , the judge and sonys lawyers are all valid targets
Personally, I find these attacks petty, ridiculous, and morally wrong, but I’ll let you decide.
