Kazuo Hirai, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Sony Computer Entertainment America has written a lengthy letter to a US Government committee about the recent data breach, in which they point the finger at Anonymous:
"Sony has been the victim of a very carefully planned, very professional, highly sophisticated criminal cyber attack. We discovered that the intruders had planted a file on one of our Sony Online Entertainment servers named 'Anonymous' with the words 'We are Legion.'"
The less interesting cover-their-ass parts of it are summarised in a post
on the official PlayStation blog. The full letter is available in irritating, not-redistributable image format on Flickr
and makes for an interesting read.
Obviously, anyone who hacks into any website for now would be pretty much crazy to not randomly drop something in there that includes the word "Anonymous", simply to lay the blame on their doorstep. Anonymous are now an excellent scapegoat for any problems of this nature,
