Anonymous Not Targeting PSN Customers

Anonymous announced their intentions to make life miserable for Sony as a backlash against their support of SOPA, but has recently clarified their stance.  Instead of trying to take down the PlayStation Network, which some had presumed, the Hacktivist group has said that their focus will be on Sony Executives and websites instead.

Sony recently recinded their support of SOPA, but the group is still looking to “post personal information about Sony executives online, deface Sony’s website with anti-SOPA propaganda, and make copywritten Sony media available for free from links on Sony’s assorted websites,” says Game Informer.

The threats that were made last week prompted not only Sony to back-pedal from the Bill, but both Nintendo and EA made statements concerning their stance on Anti-Piracy Act.
