Earlier this week, Sony pointed the finger at hacktivist group Anonymous for its recent major security breach in PlayStation Network and Music Unlimited. Now Anonymous has hit back, publishing a statement denying responsibility. “If a legitimate and honest investigation into credit card theft is conducted, Anonymous will not be found liable,” says the statement. “While we are a distributed and decentralized group, our `leadership’ does not condone credit card theft. We are concerned with the erosion of privacy and fair use, the spread of corporate feudalism, the abuse of power and the justifications of executives and leaders who believe themselves immune personally and financially for the actions they undertake in the name of corporations and public office.” That said, VentureBeat makes the point that Anonymous isn’t denying responsibility for the security breach itself, but just for the stealing of credit card data.
