Going to sound odd here but I am doubting it's Anonymous. They backed off from their original DDOS attack because it was never their intention to hurt Sony's customers so why would they steal personal information all of a sudden?

This better be fixed up by the end of the week like Sony promised. I'm sick of them going "Oh yeah no worries it'll be fixed by like tomorrow!" then discovering there are MORE problems. Why not wait until all the problems are solved before announcing PSN will be back up?

Lol I seriously think whoever did this had the intention of drawing attention away from Geohot. Being a supported of what Geohot did to bring back functions previously locked away by Sony (And also showing that it is possible for ALL Ps3's to play Ps2 games through just software) I find this whole hacker incident to be a success. Though I don't support people who use what Geohot did in a illicit manner I'd say the score is:

Fair Rights Hacker Community: 1

AnonOps claims they aren't responsible, but the problem with Anonymous is that any hacker(s) can claim to be such. I think it's just easier for Sony to blame Anon, perhaps hoping they can divert some of the heat onto them. Easier to paint Anonymous as the boogeyman than any ol' hacker, so to speak.

Sony has been making a lot of security mistakes lately
If you actually look at how they developed the PS3 hack, they actually discovered that Sony made a programming error and this error in algorithm which was supposed to give every console a unique encryption key accidentally gave all the consoles the SAME encryption key. Case in point, I do believe that Sony is just blaming Anon because it's easy because if you want to go to somebody for security, judging by their history, you shouldn't go to Sony.

Yes because dropping a file on a server with a well known slogan is proof enough. Let me go on a hacking spree and just drop anonymous files since that's proof enough.

Stupid desperation.

Nobody knows who did this and it will probably never be known. I just hope they learn from this and add more security as they stated in their letter.
