PlayStation Network enjoys a moment of respite from Thursday, April 7, since the group Anonymous has ceased attacks against Sony’s online site.
Anonymous made an announcement that comes close to a mea culpa. After realizing that the players were the main victims of its actions, the group decided to suspend its attacks. The latter made the PlayStation Network intermittently unavailable players, then qu’Anonymous would rather attack the company in order to “protect players and defend their rights.”
In fact, Anonymous warned that Sony was going to commit attacks in order to avenge its legal actions brought against GeoHot, in particular, which had published its method of circumventing protection mechanisms of the PlayStation 3 on the Internet.
Here is an excerpt from the Declaration of Anonymous for Sony, accompanied by a video.
“In recent days, Anonymous attacked Sony because of its scandalous treatment reserved for PS3 users and hackers, but also general public. Their propaganda surrounding the concept hacking (jailbreaking added) implies that it encourages piracy and thus people are losing their jobs, then it simply means that you do what you want from your equipment”.
Anonymous offers its apologies to the PSN users and suggests the arrival of other methods to sweat Sony.
