    Anonymous hacks Sony, PSN again. EDIT: It's a hoax

    UPDATE: Looks like this was probably fake. Anonymous deleted their original tweet.


    An Anonymous twitter account tweeted this moments ago claiming they hacked Sony/PSN again. The link goes to a pastebin with some emails and info on users, they claim 10million are at risk. However, the list is identical the one posted in March. So perhaps user information is safe?

    When trying to login to the PSN via PC, users are getting the following message:
    Server Maintenance
    The site is currently under maintenance. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please try again later. (500)
    We'll see where this goes

    When I followed the link, it just said "Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!Thanks for noticing—we're going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon."

    Anonymous deleted the tweet that says they hacked Sony. This may be a hoax.
    Possible reasons for Shane deleting his tweet? He realized maybe it's not the best idea for him to be speaking on behalf of Sony, per their social media policy. (Just my thoughts)

    Update: Anonymous Purportedly Hacks PlayStation Network - IGN
    Update
    : Kotaku points out that the document of leaked data linked to in the Twitter account appears to be identical to one posted on the Internet back in March.

    This suggests that PSN -- and the data therein -- is safe, though we're still waiting to hear back from Sony for confirmation and will update when we hear back.

    It can hardly be called Anon's twitter account, since Anon itself has things against Facebook and Twitter on principle alone. I'm pretty sure this is just some n00b trying to get attention and got his ass handed to him by some actual Anon members for doing so.
