Sony accuses Anonymous in PSN hack case

The fanatical online activist group Anonymous has been named by Sony as a suspect of the PlayStation Network data breach.

“We discovered that the intruders had planted a file on one of our Sony Online Entertainment servers named ‘Anonymous’ with the words ‘We are Legion’,” the company said.

The "we are legion" motto is a common send-off from members of the so-called ‘hactivist’ network Anonymous.
 
Anonymous had previously denied involvement in the illegal hack.
