Alright, so lets start at the beginning. Geohot figures out how to bypass the security of the PS3 that Sony put millions of dollars into. Sony takes Geohot to court many consumers and hacking groups back Geohot saying that once we buy a product we are free to do whatever we want with it, it is now ours. Geohot loses the court case despite winning the same case against Apple. Shortly after a group called Anonymous declares and attack on Sony. A day later they withdraw their attack saying that at this time they are not targeting Sony and OpSony has been shutdown. A few days later, PSN goes down, reports say that there was a text file found on the server named "Anonymous" that contains the following. PSN remains down for an extended period of time. Rumors start circulating that the hackers that caused the PSN to go down are planning another attack due to the poor nature that Sony handled the situation (shutting down the PSN for a month). Estimated loss by Sony is currently in the billions. Anonymous continuously denies that it was involved in the Sony breach. A week or so later, Anonymous says that one of their members has gone rogue and taken over 2 of their websites. These sites they considered "compromised" the irc and web servers at these sites are considered not a safe place to go to. The member says he believes the group has become to centralized and has been DDoSing them. And that's the story.
