LulzSec says new anti-Sony hack campaign starts within a day

LulzSec plans new wave of Sony hacking

Hacking collective Lulz Security teased on Sunday that it was about to launch a fresh campaign against Sony "within the next day." Following attacks on Sony Music Japan and elsewhere, the first phase of "Sownage" (Sony ownage) was coming along with a "pre-game show." As expected, the group didn't name its targets other than some Sony websites.

Lulz isn't believed to be responsible for the PSN hack that took down the gaming network for three weeks and, importantly, doesn't hack with the intent of using accounts and financial information. Although its attacks are often illegal, they are usually to prove that a hack can be done or to make a statement.

Many are angry at Sony for its scorched earth approach to trying to fight PS3 jailbreaking, including getting data on anyone who had even visited hacker George Hotz' website or commented on his YouTube videos. Sony eventually bowed to a settlement but has done little to earn sympathy from those who argued that Sony had crippled the freedom of users by first pulling support for alternate operating systems and then trying to hide the existence of jailbreaks. The PSN hack is believed to be the action of a rogue Anonymous faction.

In a remark towards the start of the weekend, Lulz saw itself as dealing a serious hit to Sony regardless of hacks over the past several weeks. "This is the beginning of the end for Sony," it said.
