Sony is supporting the fact that the USA government wants to pass a bill soon called 'Stop Online Piract Act' (aka) SOPA, and because of that fact, a the 'Anonymous' hacker group has released the following statement and video:
We are Anonymous.
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.
To those doubting our powers. We've infiltrated the servers of Bank of America, The United States Department of Defense, The United Nations, and Lockheed Martin. In one day.
For their approval to SOPA, we have also declared that our fury be brought upon the following persons. Justin Bieber. Lady Gaga. Kim Kardashian. and Taylor Swift.
Operation Blackout, engaged.
Operation Mayhem, engaged.
Operation LulzXmas, engaged.
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Supporters of SOPA, you should've expected us.
We here at XXXXXX in no way shape or form, support this action, we are just reporting the news like many other media sites have already.
'Anonymous' has previously attacked Sony during the 'GeoHot' lawsuits and their previous attempts at DDOS'ing the PSN network, did not do nothing but cause many major problems for ten of millions of PS3 owners, infact Sony blames the early April DDOS attacks as the main reason why the 'other' (still unknown) Criminal hackers that were able to get into the secured network and steal millions and millions of Credit Card info and other personal details on of Sony customers that had an PSN account.
