To follow up on the news story of the arrest of the alleged PSN hackers it has since come to light that the three men arrested were NOT responsible for the hacking of the PlayStation Network.
Instead they are being charged with several “hack attacks” on Sony websites as well as on banks and even governments. Obviously these are serious charges and the three men can expect to serve some serious jail time if they are found guilty.
Anonymous responded to the arrest on Twitter by saying, “We are Legion, so EXPECT US,” the group said on its official Twitter feed.”. However it should be pointed out that Anonymous, by their very nature, are a leaderless organization so the validity of any statement by a member of Anonymous is hard to judge.
Still it would appear that the hacker community are serious as UK game publishers Codemasters were hacked on June 3rd. Codemasters have stated that no payment details have been compromised however users should change their passwords.
So far no group has come forward to claim responsibility for the hacking of Codemasters.
