Sony is still battling to deal with the fallout from the major security breach on its PlayStation Network (PSN) gaming service, and yesterday gave evidence to a US House of Representatives subcommittee on what had happened. The big news: Sony has focused attention back in the direction of the Anonymous collective of ‘hacktivists’. In a blog post summarising its evidence to the subcommittee, Sony says that it has “been the victim of a very carefully planned, very professional, highly sophisticated criminal cyber attack”, and claims that “We discovered that the intruders had planted a file on one of our Sony Online Entertainment servers named ‘Anonymous’ with the words ‘We are Legion’.” Sony goes on to state that “as of today, the major credit card companies have not reported any fraudulent transactions that they believe are the direct result of this cyber attack”. The central figures within Anonymous have previously denied being responsible for the attack and theft of data. Source: Sony
