The War Between Anonymous and Sony Rages On

An anarchic online collective of hackers calling themselves Anonymous has been behind various pranks and masked protests, with their most recent attack as another installment in the war between Anonymous and Sony.

Sony went after GeoHot as one of their efforts of counter-acting all the hacking going on of their PS3s. They allegedly went on to have YouTube and Facebook hand over the IP addresses of anyone who viewed videos by Geohot, an invasion of privacy that seriously angered the widespread community of hackers that identify with the unofficial Anonymous entity. Furthermore, this Anonymous and Sony battle has resulted in the crash of all PS3s, angering those in the hacker and gamer communities.

In response to Sony, Anonymous organized one of their creative pranks by posting one of their famed Vendetta themed videos, which urged anyone sympathizing with their cause to join the protest against Sony. Stats for Vendetta Hacktivism Trending: Older & Average
