    Bring on the PSN outage!
    Joystiq says none of its members are supporting SOPA anymore. EA have said they never took a stance on SOPA, they technically backed it because they are part of the ESA, so when the ESA supported the bill, all its members did too. There's a large list of members on the ESA Wikipedia page so I think Joystiq may be wrong on that one.

    Those companies can still oppose the bill without leaving the ESA, and I wouldn't say that just because Sony, EA, etc. are still members, that means they still support it.

    Not that we'd know. This could just be a way of quietly backing SOPA while publicly opposing it. Or they may oppose it, yet still want the benefits of being a part of the ESA.

    Who should we believe?

    Wouldn't surprise me to hear that Game stored passwords as plain text.

    Anonymous claims to intercept conference call between FBI and Scotland Yard

    Wonder how they got that.

    Not a particularly interesting or noteworthy call aside from it concerning hackers who seem to have a talent for shooting themselves in their own foot.

    Yeah, I guess if they were going to say anything of any great importance they'd have used a more secure method of communication. Ah well, I guess the Anon guys had fun with it...

    Thinking about it, all they've got to do is get the name of one of the people involved in the hacker related conference calls and hack their email for the phone number and time. Likely one of the people who were being talked about made a list of the coppers names as he met them, all of whom would have been CC'd into it. Crack one crack all.

    Not the most insecure thing ever, but not exactly earth shattering stuff either.

    12 criminal counts of conspiracy to engage in computer hacking and other crimes last summer, crimes which carry a maximum sentence of 124 years and six months in prison
    Strikes me as a little disproportionate considering there was nothing but corporate loss which, lets face it, is worth nothing. And like that extra 6 months means anything.

    How they plan on taking down server farms the size of football pitches that are designed to deal with millions/billions of concurrent requests is beyond me.

    It's like the South Park episode. They'll just hit a huge switch.

    I hope they send out an email to everyone to clear their DNS cache as well so it has more effect.

    Not that they're going to have any effect.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    sentence doesn't = prison

    e.g. an offence may carry a mandatory sentence of 15 years, 12 months of which must be in prison. the 15 year sentence is still ongoing after the 12 months (or usually 6 months) in prison is finished

    agreed that a 124 year sentence is pointless in anyone's book though! (but it doesn't mean 124.5 years)

    They might as well enjoy their fun while they still can, before Eurolol comes after them.
