Notorious "hacktivist" Anonymous has publicly targeted Sony on behalf of PS3 jailbreaker George "Geohot" Hotz, deeming their legal actions against Geohot as "wholly unforgivable".
Anonymous, a group who claims they were responsible for hacking Amazon and Mastercard, posted a threatening declaration that reads:
"Congratulations, Sony. You now have now received the undivided attention of Anonymous. Your recent legal action against our follow hackers, Geohot and Graf_Chokolo, has not only alarmed us, it has been deemed wholly unforgivable."
"You have now abused the judicial system in an attempt to censor information on how your products work. You have victimised your own customers merely for possessing and sharing information, and continue to target every person who seeks this information. In doing so you have violated the privacy of thousands. This is the information they were willing to teach the world for free. The very same information you wish to suppress for sake of corporate greed and complete control of the users."
"Now you will experience the wrath of Anonymous. You saw a hornets nest, and stuck your penises in it. You must face the consequences of your actions, Anonymous style."
"Knowledge is Free. We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not Forgive. We do not forget. Expect us."
George "Geohot" Hotz is responsible for PS3 homebrew software that led to the ability to pirate games. Ever since then, Sony has been looking for a way to legally prosecute Hotz, but there has yet to be a decision as to where to try him as well as what he would be guilty of.
Recently Sony alleged that Hotz had fled the country to South America, leaving him, as he put it, rolling on the floor while laughing. Hotz claims he is there on vacation and states, "I mean, it is Spring break; hacking isn't my life."
