Shaw Capital Management News: The Worst Is Yet to Come: Anonymous Talks To PlayStation LifeStyle - Finance

After extensively covering Anonymous attack on Sony, PlayStation LifeStyles news was heavily referenced across the internet by other gaming sites, but they werent the only ones to take interest in our articles. Anonymous had noticed, and they wanted to talk.After waking this morning, I checked Anonymous IRC, a secure chat system used by the group to co-ordinate their attacks, after scrolling down a few pages I noticed something Anonymous were looking for me. User Takai stated on SonyRecons IRC Find me Sebastian Moss Wanna talk to him. Subsequently, other members replied Theres his twitter dude, I can get his email if you want Moss is a member of GamesPress.com his details will be easy enough to find. Anonymous were closing in: okay Mr Moss lives in central london continuing hey sebastain if your here wanna just go ahead and give us your phone number? cause were going to find it.Dubbed by some as giant killers, its generally not seen as a good idea to incur the wrath of A nonymous, who were able to not only bring Sony down, but governments, Mastercard and US security firm HB Gary. However, while Anonymous has few rules, they do have a very strict one against attacking the press as supporters of free speech, they must allow journalists to write what they want, even if they dont like what is written. Takai told the members of the chat He is NOT a target, repeating that I should not be intimidated or threatened.

Checking my Twitter, I had received a message: Join our IRC #SonyRecon under the username BoltMoss72. Anon has a statement to make. Anonymous has no formal leader, and instead any member can contribute to the group and suggest actions or make statements, but the SonyRecon IRC was almost unanimous they had something to say to me.

I joined the chat soon after, still slightly nervous, updating my anti-virus software in a futile attempt to feel more secure. Takai immediately replied to my message, setting up a private chat room to talk. After looking at the IRC chat logs it was clear that Takai, while not a leader, did have a disproportionately high input in the chat, and the groups actions. I asked Takai if he (gender assumed) would classify himself as a current driving force behind SonyRecon and he agreed, but later was careful to clarify that he had not actually admitted to what [his] particular role in the operation is, and light-heartedly that perhaps [he is] merely a cheer leader.

Takai believed that the FBI, along with Sony and Prolexic were watching the main groups chat (but not our private conversation), so he chose his words carefully, ensuring he never technically admitted to any wrong doing. However, he said that he did not fear Sony coming after him, and that they have bigger things to worry about than I. He also joked that about the FBI watching them: Theyre names in a list. If they want to hang out and chat, by all means. Maybe they can help ddos!.. I hear the government has a fast connection or two .

Hired by Sony, Prolexic are a company that specialises in defeating DDoS attacks the kind currently used by Anonymous to bring down Sony. A powerful opponent, Prolexic have mostly managed to keep Anonymous at bay. Takai, however, seemed relaxed about the companys defenses It was expected. We knew sooner or later Sony would enlist outside help. Pressed on whether Anonymous would take out Prolexic, Takai showed confidence in the hacktavists upcoming retaliation, stating well, if I had to put money on it Id say, Prolexic is going down like a two dollar wh*** in a Nevada chicken ranch . He did admit that the company is quite formidable and congratulated them for doing so well, but again he warned We do however have ways for dealing with the Prolexic factor. Hoping to not ruin the big surprises planned for Sony, he would not go into detail on what these ways were, refusing to comment on whether the site would be defaced something that was considered in the main IRC.

It was clear that Anonymous have only just begun their assault on Sony, with Takai saying about the new defenses: the last thing we want, is Sony thinking we were in any way discouraged. He announced [today] however is an important day for Sony, threatening that far more was to come:So far, all Sony has seen from us is poking and prodding. A simple salute to let them know, were coming. Make no mistake, what you saw today and thought to be frustration is merely preparation for whats to come.We said, expect us. Counting us out, would be a mistake. Later:For the sake of not shooting ourselves in the foot, I wont comment on specific operational tactics we may or may not employ here. I will however say, that if Sony thinks LOIC is the only trick in our hat theyre in for a hell of a wake up call. Were really going all out for this one.There are many different faces to the operation. Something we encourage is creative thinking.He also confirmed that this belief was shared by man y others: My belief and that of all those you see here and many many more is that Anonymous is not done with Sony. And its true, the IRC is filled with anonymous Anons planning a big attack, but due to my presence, the discussions on actual plans are kept off the main lines. Takai also stated that the fight could last for a long time: Weve known all along this war would not be won in a day. Were here for the long haul though.
