Sony Doesn't Believe Anonymous Caused PSN Outage
During a press conference last night regarding the PSN outages, a Japanese reporter asked Sony an interesting question. The reporter asked Kaz Hirai, Sony's CEO, what involvement, if any, did the infamous hacking group Anonymous have with the latest PSN intrusions. Kaz responded with “Anonymous has not been implicated in any way with the current attacks.” It is also important to note that Anonymous had denied involvement and responsibility for the PlayStation Network attacks. This does not rule them out completely, but it is safe to say it was most likely someone else acting on their own.
Just to make it clear tonight, the final question asked at the PSN press conference dealt directly with the subject of Anonymous.
A Japanese reporter asked what involvement, if any, this infamous group had with the latest PSN intrusions.
Kaz Hirai, Sony’s EDP and Ridge Racer‘s #1 fan responded stating that “Anonymous has not been implicated in any way with the current attacks.”
Anonymous themselves (whoever they are) have also denied any involvement in the recent attacks. Does this rule them out completely? Of course not, but it’s safe to say someone else was likely responsible.
Sony is currently working with the FBI and Department of Homeland security to find out who is responsible for the intrusion, but so far they have no reason to implicate Anonymous.
