Hackers Start Attacking Sony's PlayStation Services And Leak Executive Details
PlayStation and it's services were hacked recently resulting in downtimes. The reason behind it - Hackers. Anonymous is a group of hackers calling themselves "SonyRecon", started to work towards goals which involve finding as much information as they can regarding Sony Executives. There are many other goals these people work towards, so they're not just hatin' on Sony.
So here's the list of their achievements:
Craigslist – Make an ad in the "free stuff" section, or in "erotic services" and "casual encounters" as is evident here there are many horny men who will relentlessly pursue someone who they believe to be 19/f.
STD Postcards – send one of these e-postcards notifying the target that one of their previous sexual partners has a STD. Makes for an uncomfortable wait for them. Alternatively call an AIDS hotline and ask them to anonymously tell the target they could have HIV, thats a 6 month wait until the test comes back.
Free UPS Boxes create an account and order the target a couple of hundred boxes & labels, fedex also offer free boxes.
Google Maps use Google maps to locate local businesses to mess with the target.
Skype – Use skype to call the target. When you first register a skype account you get one free call…
IP Relay – Ask the operator not to announce at the start of the call. This is a service only available to people in the USA.
So yeah, ummm... I'm speechless. D:
Sony executive Robert S. Wiesenthal has had a ton of personal information, like "marital status, age, place of address, education and even whether he has children", leaked over the net.
In my opinion, this whole situation is now stupid. There is no need to target executives. They're a part of a company which would like to protect it's investment. Hackers had reasons to hack the PS3 due to the removal of otherOS, but enabling back-up managers isn't helping hackers to win lawsuits, it just causes more infringements to be broken.
Play safe, we'll keep you posted!
