Anonymous claimed to have hacked PSN again, but quickly deletes tweet
So, Anon got hacked instead? '10 million accounts were affected', said the original Tweet.
Anonymous claimed on Twitter to have hacked PSN again. But shortly after, they deleted their tweet.
All points everything is safe on PSN, for now.
Now, this is a weird story.
Hacking group Anonymous claimed to have hacked the PlayStation Network, again.
This was posted on their Twitter account. However, shortly after, they removed the tweet.
This is a capture of what they said:
Yep, according to that, they compiled "50GB worth of user email accounts and passwords", putting 10 million accounts "at risk".
Here's what the hacker said on the Pastebin link posted.
According to Kotaku, the list in question appears to be a copy of this pastebin posting from March 19.
Think outside the box.
I am a man with no name, I'm the man behind Anonymous, hence "master & card visa takedown in 2010"
FBI, will you seize the innocent doors,or a devil behind that door whos staring right at'cha?
I got no twitter,facebook, neither I go in IRC.. if someone takes credit for this pwnage, he's a faggot.
What's the target?...It's SONY, MOTHERFUCKER.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
for the full database, which is 50GB, ****.
About 10 million fuckers at risk. Yes, if you play playstatio network, you're included<3
Also, Shane Bettenhausen, with business development at Sony Computer Entertainment America, said the claim was "totally fake."
Anonymous hasn't yet posted anything else yet. But, the removal of the Tweet is probably a confirmation that this was fake.
Could this be a sign that something "big" is coming, or they just got "hacked" instead?
