We check the links, that contains some waste list of user names , Even there is not a single email ID in whole excel sheet that can be used against some spam/hack. Then why Sony so Scared ??
Here ) (
Now, search "site:products.sel.sony.com filetype:xls" , You will get that Excel sheet which contain those 2500 users data . Huh , is this called Hacking ????
Now Lets Talk about Anonymous Vs Sony :
Anonymous is a group of Activist, who always raise their Voice against Injustice . They are not exact Hackers. One more thing , No one is sure that, there are how many Anonymous or Who are real Anonymous ! Please Note it, Anyone can call himself Anonymous. That the beauty of Team work, but sometime its the most biggest confusion also :P
Now as per talk with the core member of Anonymous, We can say that Core Anonymous are not behind that attacks on sony/data theft etc. Anonymous did Ddos before to make servers down, for some cause. But they are not Greedy of Money and they never wish to harm the Innocent Sony customers.
Finally the Conclusion is that, Some other Group of Hackers using name of Anonymous for doing these data theft. I would like to Request Sony that, Please concentrate on your security 1st, RATHER than blaming Anonymous, Because THN aim is Cyber Security and Awareness !!
One more thing I wanna say at last, Does Sony know that embedded an Administrator's real e-mail address on a website isn't the best cybersecurity practice ? ;-) Or As We came to know that, Stored user and credit card information on Sony server with an outdated version of apache in plain text with no firewall ,Now this anyone can get via just Google . Come on ! Hire some best Security professionals Like Mr. Kevin Mitnick ( My inspiration ) :D , Security Experts should knows that how hackers think, How they work, how they write exploits.
Please Recover PSN and other services again as soon as possible, Kids are waiting for Video Game :)
Sony ! Please Don't Worry, you will be back soon and with more Security. Media should not create Issues on 3rd attack, It was not an attack.. That was just the indication that some more hackers are/can trying/try to find more security holes for 3rd Hit. Keeps your eyes Open, we are here to provide every update about Hackers/Cyber Crime/Hacking/Security ... Stay Tuned !!!
Thanks You !
