maybe a new cyber-attacks against Sony planned

This week, Sony has accused the hacker group Anonymous of being behind the data theft at the PlayStation Network. Now it seems that Sony must adjust to yet another attack. According to Cnet is planning a major cyber attack against Sony in the coming weekend.
The information comes from an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) channel for hackers and can not be confirmed, and it is unclear who is behind.

But the hackers claim they already have access to some of Sony's servers and they will now publish all or some of the personal information they obtain on the servers, including names, addresses and card numbers.

The attack was allegedly being punished for Sony's handling of the case regarding the recent data theft, where personal data on more than 100 million users are stolen.

Several weeks ago, the hacker group Anonymous of a so-called Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks against several of Sony's websites in retaliation for Sony's lawsuit against the hacker George Hotz.

Two weeks later the PlayStation Network and Qriocity so struck by the large data theft, which forced Sony to close the service down. It is still not restored.

Anonymous has denied being responsible for data theft. Now it seems that the same hackers who stood behind data theft will implement a new attack on Sony. However, it can be difficult, because Sony has reportedly stepped up security lately, and now it actually warned in advance.

A spokesperson for Anonymous said now to journal.Sc magazine to Sony's claim that the hacker group is behind only a diversionary tactic to divert attention from the real perpetrators.

"Anonymous is not known to steal and sell credit card data, if we did the FBI had long since thrown himself upon us," says Barrett Brown.

He supposes that the perpetrators come from Eastern Europe.

Sony boss Howard Stringer has signed up to speak for the first time since the attack in a letter where he stresses that it still has no evidence that credit card data or other personal information was compromised.

Joypadder avatarid read that this IRC was a fake .. just some keyboard worrier trying to put the goose up Sony . but if its true in anyway all the extra security will ensure ( for at least a few months) that psn will not be under attack again for a while . so the servers these new hacker have access to is a lie no one other than sony at this moment in time are able to access the servers and when the psn comes back on the servers will not be using the same type of security .

carlbandit avatarI think this is more of a scare tactic used to further punish sony, by saying they plan to strike again sony will likely get people monitering server activity 24/7, its unlikely that anythng will happen now so therefore staff watching the server are just costing sony money

As for the possibility of hackers having access to some of sony's servers, that is totaly possible, sony will have some servers connected to the internet somewhere, in some back offices or something, its only the PSN and SOE servers down

SyKoTiK avatarNow would be the worst time to attempt another hack since Sony still has security firms, the FBI, and other agencies reviewing the network infrastructure for potential exploits and holes. ANY unusual activity is going to be caught immediately and either just blocked or added to the list of suspects for the main outage and then traced.

I would tend to say that this is more of a scare tactic, as carlbandit said, so that Sony will pay some people to sit at their NOC 24/7 365 to monitor the network. They should be doing this anyways.

SyKoTiK avatar@taker: What part of Sony was hacked, though? If you're talking about the data from 2007, then that's old news and not really much to worry about since it was probably before Sony finished implementing the new security measures. If this is a hack that just happened within the last 1 or 2 days (after the new security was put in place) then Sony needs to keep the network offline until it's actually secured for now and is CONSTANTLY monitored to prevent further breaches (and updated further to protect against new attacks).

Nodurxshn avatarI seriously think this whole PSN hack job is a self inflicted wound by sony to shut down there servers get everyone hysterical about not having the PS network to justify handing down a price tag for paid membership ..sony probably sees the money they are losing by offering this service for free ..i could be wrong but i really wouldn't put it past corporate america to try and bleed the people it is all they know
