Heads Up!! Anonymous Threatens Sony With Robotic Voice On YouTube

Quote
Anonymous is upset at Sony for supporting the SOPA act, and is threatening to shut down its network again. The hacker group also threatened Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, and Taylor Swift.
Here is the full text of their threat:
"Hello, SONY.
We are Anonymous.
It has come to the attention of the Anonymous activist community that you have chosen to stand by the Stop Online Piracy Act. This act will halt online businesses and restrict access to many sites for many users. Supporting SOPA is like trying to throw an entire company from off a bridge. Your support to the act is a signed death warrant to SONY Company and Associates. Therefore, yet again, we have decided to destroy your network. We will dismantle your phantom from the internet. Prepare to be extinguished. Justice will be swift, and it will be for the people, whether some like it or not. Sony, you have been warned.
To those doubting our powers. We've infiltrated the servers of Bank of America, The United States Department of Defense, The United Nations, and Lockheed Martin. In one day.
For their approval to SOPA, we have also declared that our fury be brought upon the following persons. Justin Bieber. Lady Gaga. Kim Kardashian. and Taylor Swift.
Operation Blackout, engaged.
Operation Mayhem, engaged.
Operation LulzXmas, engaged.
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Supporters of SOPA, you should've expected us."

Now might be a good time to change your PSN password and grab Rochard off the PlayStation Network.

While not directly related to the subject raised, I found this interesting article which describes the lengths that hackers went to in order to jailbreak the Playstation 3 -

[Update] The list in question, referenced below, never actually featured the names of Sony, Microsoft, or Nintendo. The three companies in question signed themselves onto a letter from the US Chamber of Commerce which urged Congress to support something like SOPA, but it was never an official endorsement of the act itself. This letter was signed before SOPA was brought forward.
These companies are in favor of an act like SOPA, but have never, technically, endorsed the actual SOPA. This means that their names didn't suddenly disappear from the list of companies supporting SOPA, it just means they were never included to begin with.

[Original story] The biggest video game companies in the world, and effectively some of the strongest voices behind the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), have withdrawn their support.
SOPA seeks to allow companies to shut down sites like piratebay.org that illegally stream or allow users to download copyrighted media. If SOPA were to pass, a company like Sony could make a request to bar advertising or shut down a down sites that give users an avenue to download illegal media. The internet does not like this bill, and hacker group Anonymous even threatened Sony with another attack becasue of its support of the bill.
We know that Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft pulled its support, because those companies no longer appear on the list of supporters of the bill. The list does however still feature the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) of which those three companies are still members of, so they are still behind the bill, only in tangential sort of way.
