Yea.. word on the street is its hackers. Found a site where people say they are going after PSN accounts.. worst case is they are targeting saved credit cards.. don't think Sony is dumb enough to allow a backdoor there... but we'll see what happens.

Well my friend is on top of this stuff and he told me today that the hacker who calls himself "Anonymous" (not that he is but he's actually using the word as his name) is at war with PSN. Supposedly they got the network running for like 10 mins today and the guy shut them down again right away. Then he sent an email to them saying something along the lines of "Sony has a stranglehold on it's customers and anyone that effected by it needs to reevaluate their lives and go outside" but then admits that it's basically just retaliation for Sony going after the people that were hacking and ruining MW2 for those of us who tried to play the normal game and get good.

Sony is saying that because of Easter weekend they won't begin working on it till Monday and because they were shut down so easily a second time that with the additional security they will be doing it may take a while to get it back up.

Again this info is from a buddy of mine who is usually on top of this stuff so feel free to read more yourselves and correct anything if I'm wrong.

Anonymous is actually more than one person, it's a group. They have been warring with sony for a while now. I'm starting to get really pissed because I can't use netflix and that's pretty much all I use for tv. I don't have cable anymore, so I've had to use the browser to do a lot of streaming. They really need to nip this problem in the butt.

Hopefully anon can destroy XBL next. Then maybe we can get the good games back on computer without being ported from console first. Thats one group of people you do not mess with if you want to still use the internet.
What happened to that security firm again? http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/n...avy-price.ars/

Absolutely epic.

I don't understand what is going on really. What is "jailbreaking"? I know what it is for iphones but what does it do on the PS3?

All I know is I'm sick of people hacking games. I'm amazed by the shit they can do and stuff but keep it out of normal games. My idea of fun is to play a fair game where everybody plays by the rules and you're either good or you suck so you practice to get good.

If they set up a lobby for modded only games for the hackers to play each other that would be cool as hell. The problem with hackers is that they are selfish. If I was having problems because I was trying to do something illegal I wouldn't take it out on the whole PSN community. I don't understand what the problem with buying a console and some games and playing them. Want more "freedom" then that then why not develop your own system with it's own servers? Obviously they are some talented people to be able to do what they do so why couldn't they pull it off?

The other reason I say hackers are selfish is because they screw over average people who never tried to screw anyone for their own personal gains (or in some cases just to say they did it.). All I know is that I didn't do anything to anybody to deserve not being able to play a few games online after a hard week of work and I never asked for anything more then what the PS3 already provides.


Also Netflix is working if you do like the other poster said and keep leaving the sign in prompts.

Basically the same thing....you make the PS3 capable of playing something other than the Sony Operating System.

If you have one of the original "bricks", meaning the first batch of PS3's, you could install Linux on them. It was a pretty popular "hack" if you will...

You also can be blackflagged by Microsoft if you mod your Xbox, which will result in your XBL account being terminated...

Anonymous wasn't responsible for the PSN being taken down. He said he wished it was him though.

EXACTLY

These selfish pricks scream and yell when the hacks get blocked or shut down and ruin the game experience for the 90% of the world that doesn't want to cheat and just wants to play the effing game as it was intended. They treat everyone like its a crime for them to actually want to play a simulator online with others to pretend to be an actual soldier who can actually die and who actually doesn't have unlimited bullets.

Then they spend their time on their soapbox yelling how its wrong to stop them and if you don't like it you can play somewhere else, and they are oppressed, etc.

I hope this bastard is caught and beaten and the new security measures prevent any hacking. You don't like it make your own game.

The ONLY reason my post was tamer then your's is because I don't want to chance get hacked. The odds of them seeing my post on a camaro site are pretty slim but if they can do that to sony then I'm not messing with them.

It really is BS though and I don't understand how anyone could support this crap. I was really hoping someone could tell me ANYTHING to justify this bull but until I hear something legit this is retarded. I saw the email too. It has the V for Vendetta guy (Guy Faux?) on the background. There is no "freedom crusade" here or noble cause and while there may be some true visionaries at work in a skill set they are not the idealists they are acting like.

Oh and on the last bit of rant - They say that Sony violated rights somehow? How is Sony breaking privacy ethics to CATCH VIOLATORS a lesser form of intrusion then the guy who just wiped out everything you worked for because you killed him once while he was trying to turn care packages into a spaceship in a corner or shutting down a network full of people's saved credit card data?!!!

Exactly. That was my other thought (before I realized it was just some total bs). If it's some "gaming revolution" then why not take down xbox? They shut down alot more people through bans then PS!!!!

So this thing is at least partially over the fact that they can't change the OS? Well then that makes sense! My phone doesn't provide holograms for me and the company said I can't have any holograms so I'm going to screw over all their customers and pretend like it's a crusade for their rights!!!!

Maybe I'll send pics with Che in the background so they know that I'm the underdog but def the good guy!!

It really is sad. They think they are showing off their "Skillz" how they are "l33t programmerz" Just a bunch of losers who if they were so "leet" would just get a job at a game company or some other company and make some money with their "skillz" instead of f-ing it up for the rest of us.

The whole Liunx thing understandably did piss people off. The PS3 on the box says you can install liunx and many people bought it for that, heck the USAF has a network of PS3's running Liunx they use as a supercomputer. Sony discovered people were pirating games through that feature and released a system update that blocked that feature. Basically if you don't install the update you can't access PSN, so people got pissed.

Yeah be mad, yeah maybe get a class action lawsuit going. But no instead these losers have to screw it up for the USERS instead. Thanks dicks.

Exactly, PS3 was originally marketed as being able to run a linux/unix operating system. At that point it was, for all intents and purposes, a media PC. This was why I originally bought the PS3. The problem is, what do you think everyone is going to do with a near fully capable media pc with hdmi output, great graphics and gaming hardware, etc? Everyone downloaded games, movies, even programs. Hacking was rampant, but that's Sony's fault imo. Sony patched everything so you can't do it anymore without jailbreaking. They are artificially limiting the capabilities of the hardware so you will pay them more money, or at least that's the view of Anonymous and many others.

Actually, it's still their hardware and their software, which means they can do whatever they want with it. It's proprietary of Sony, which means it's illegal to do otherwise.

As for the Linux bit, it was discontinued with the small form factor versions, and there was an announcement about them discontinuing it. If you don't like it, don't buy it.....it's that simple.

It fighting the man, and the powers that be.

Not wanting to be told what you can and can't do with what you own.

Its the rum runners of a new age.

----

Though making a game for PC first makes them more secure, as you realize everyone has different stuff, and you can't restrict what they can do with it as much. And thus script kidd hacks to cheat at games is less ramped.

Then you port to lesser quality console.
