Anonymous hacked the PSN, but then didn’t

8/16/12 4:05pm

Anonymous has made the headlines again, but this time it’s for something that they claimed happened, but didn’t. Yeah, Anonymous claimed via Twitter that they had once again hacked the PlayStation Network. They have uploaded a list of 50GB worth of usernames and passwords, but it turned out to be a list of random details.

Later the tweet would be removed from the Anonymous account and Sony would give an official statement. "We’ve confirmed that the recent claim that PlayStation Network was illegally hacked and that customer passwords and email addresses were accessed is completely false”. So it was all a hoax and now Anonymous looks a little foolish, but I wouldn’t gloat too much. Next time that might not be the case.
