Hack the planet… a phrase that we all have loved until it starts getting out of control. 32 ‘Anonymous’ hackers have been detained by Turkish police according to a report from the Turkish State Media on Monday. The Turkish police executed raids in 12 Turkish cities to crack these guys down which resulted in the 32 people being caught and detained. As reported yesterday that three men were caught in Spain…and this report fueled the fire of an Anonymous Spokesperson to reach out with a statement.
“You have not detained three participants of Anonymous. We have no members and we are not a group of any kind. You have, however, detained three civilians expressing themselves,”
The group reached out to Spanish government on Saturday with this statement…
“You are providing us with the fuel, but now you must expect the fire.”
Anonymous, which refers to itself as an “international Internet hactivist collective,” has carried out cyberattacks on numerous high-profile targets including Visa, Amazon and Sony. Check out the full statement from ‘Anonymous’ after the jump…

Sony is not known for being first on the scene when they get breached but now they have released that the latest attack on the Sony Pictures site was real. 37,500 users were affected by the latest attack. The company known as Lulz Security was able to grab 37,500 users info but very small pieces of it due to their resources not being large enough to handle it all. Sony reassures that there was no credit card info that was taken…this time but information including names, genders, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, birth dates, user account names and passwords was taken during the breach. At this point who cares what is taken because info is still being taken period. What are your feelings on the latest attack? Sound off after the jump in the comments.
