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.

Anonymous had previously denied involvement in the illegal hack.
