    • So now I see Sony are trying to suggest that somehow the invincible superhackers known as Anonymous were involved in hacking the Playstation and getting all those credit card details. I think that’s nonsense. From the little I know, Anonymous are ethical hackers, not thieves. Sony’s security wasn’t good enough, that’s all there is to it. They’re trying to make it look like since Anonymous were involved, no encryption in the world would have been secure, that Anonymous are invincible and so Sony exercised due diligence in setting up their encryption. That won’t wash, Sony. We see through you!

      • Amazing how you can have an #epicfail and point fingers at the first thing that looks like #anonymous. If I did hack Sony.. I would leave a trail leading to others.. If I was investigating this breach I would look at the .pdf that said “I am legion” and saw .. RIGHT
