The loosely organized hacker group known as Anonymous has Sony in its sights once again. After releasing a video a few days ago wherein they threaten to destroy Sony’s network, the group, which has been organizing in the IRC channel #OpSony, has clarified the meaning of their declaration. Unlike the infamous PlayStation Network hack of 2011, the target of this attack is not Sony’s customers or even the Playstation Network itself, but Sony’s executives.
As a direct response to Sony’s alignment with recent SOPA legislation, Anonymous intends to “dox” (find and expose personal information) about the company’s executives. The group has already begun to publicize some private information (including credit card numbers) and plans to continue releasing more and more information in as public a way as possible in the near future.
In addition to doxing, Anonymous has announced plans to attack and deface Sony’s websites with Internet memes altered to have an anti-SOPA message. The possibility of posting links to Sony’s copyrighted material, right on their own websites, has also been suggested.
