Anonymous trio arrested in PSN case

Police investigating April's PSN security breach have made three arrests in Spain.

Spong reports that Spanish officers "have identified the three detainees as leaders of the Spanish section of a group that calls itself Anonymous".

It is alleged that one of those detained was in possession of a computer server "from which the group attacked the Web sites of the Sony PlayStation online gaming store".

In fact, Spanish authorities are also taking credit for "dismantling the local leadership of the shadowy international network of computer hackers, called Anonymous".

It still remains unclear exactly who was responsible for the PSN attack.
