Anonymous, the hacker group behind a rash of massive security breaches, might be turning its attention back to Sony.
In the fading days of 2011, the loosely collected group released a YouTube video expressing its outrage at Sony's support of SOPA, a controversial piece of legislation aiming to curtail online piracy. That's got some people concerned, since the last time Sony and Anonymous clashed, it opened the doors for the largest data breach in online history.
"Supporting SOPA is like trying to throw an entire company from off a bridge," the group said in its usual bombastic style.
"Your support to the act is a signed death warrant to SONY Company and Associates. Therefore, yet again, we have decided to destroy your network. We will dismantle your phantom from the internet. Prepare to be extinguished. Justice will be swift, and it will be for the people, whether some like it or not. Sony, you have been warned."Read More »from Anonymous targeting Sony again
