“The hacker hordes of Anonymous have transferred their fickle attention to Sony. They are currently attacking the company’s online Playstation store in retribution for Sony’s lawsuit against PS3 hacker George Hotz (aka “GeoHot”). A denial of service attack has temporarily taken down playstation.com.

While most Anonymous attacks remain online-only hacks or protests, Operation Sony will feature a real world component. On April 16, Anonymous wants people to gather at their local Sony stores to complain in person.”
