Almost a month of downtime, up to $171 million in revenue loss, millions of user’s personal info stolen, and the laughing stock of the geek world…what could we be talking about? How about the major security issues Sony has been troubled with over the last few months of course! Well good news they might have apprehended three of the people that were involved in this crime.
One of the three that was caught had a server in his house that was believed to be involved in the PSN attack as well as banks, various countries’ government websites, and more. The three that are suspected live in Barcelona, Alicante, and Almeria and have been released without bail says the New York Times. Now if these are the geeks that were involved and they get away I’m gonna get a little upset as it has really screwed up some of my personal game time! The Times also says that they ”were expected to be charged with forming an illegal association to attack public and corporate Web sites.” If they are convicted it could land these suspected crooks up to three years in jail. I am surprised they are only looking at three years. $171 million in loss and its only three years? Can’t you get more time for downloading an illegal MP3 these days? More after the jump…
The suspected three have pleased innocent to the crimes but Sony is fingering them (Anonymous) as the ones that did the initial attack. There has been multiple attacks on Sony since then as LulzSecurity is claiming responsibility for some of the attacks on Sony as well as one on Nintendo.
I’m sure we will be hearing more on this and we will keep you posted as always. Let us know how you feel about it in the comments below!
