    Icon4 Anonymous, Hackers of SOE and supposedly in the incident of why FR is down

    Hello fellow Realmers
    I came here today to share with you some important info
    As you know, there has been a hack in April that has caused SOE to shut down all games because of a hack. There is a news report saying a group called "Anonymous" did it. They are a group of people that hack games and get personal information about people. Don't believe me? Watch this video:

    Anonymous is on the hunt. Watch out for unusual e-mails and things asking for personal information and your credit card number and things like that. Here is why it is a hacker if you get this email:
    1. They already promised when you entered FR that they would not ask for any info about your account
    2. This has hapened more than once, it could be anyone!
    3. I have got the email, and it wasn't even from a valid SOE e-mail!

    Also, I am a victim of a random person texting me... a "cyber stalker"
    I am concerned about this and you should too! I hope you watch out because they are EVERYWHERE!

    Anonymous could be anyone....
    I hope they catch the hackers that did this.

    Btw, I must say....
    The Hackers must be really smart to even find out that kind of info to the Playstation Network .-.

    I doubt that Xbox Live would actually get hacked....
    Xbox Live is actually "secure" >.>...

    By now everyone has heard of Wikileaks stories in the news, since the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange Operation Payback is launched. Operation Payback systematic attacks online banks and payment processors with DDoS attacks.
    The operation affects besides online Christmas shopping also the online gambling market and online sports betting customers with sites that report problems while handling deposits. If you have been following events surrounding Operation Payback you already know what kind of chaos has been released on online payment processors like Visa and Mastercard. The banking transactions of the two processors were interrupted, it has attracted a lot of media attention just before the Christmas shopping. But not just online shopping is a victim of the operation, online sports betting sites and online casinos are reporting problems the last days with payments from customers. Especially players who pay with credit cards or use online payment processor PayPal encounter problems.
    Operation Payback is not yet over, one of the last victims of Operation Payback is the online payment processor Moneybookers. Moneybookers is a well known payment processor for online casinos by Microgaming, which could mean that players can face difficulties in transferring their credit. Today the website of the prosecutor in the Netherlands was hit by the hacker group Anonymous in retaliation for the arrest of 16-year-old hacker from The Hague who participated in DDoS attacks. <-- ( from an online site explaining Operation Payback... Note.. Sony isn't mentioned ) I honestly understand that there is a lot of speculation on this organization as being the ones who did this...And they're notorious for taking credit for their work as well....But so far all I see is speculation as them being the ones who did this hack and no media has made it indefinite that they did either and they're not admitting to it or taking credit for it at all... Don't mistaken me to be defending them or the hackers of this... I just don't like placing blame anywhere unless I'm sure it belongs there... And I'm not so sure about this one...

    lol Me & and a couple of friends were talking about this exact topic at school today.

    One of my friends asked : Aren't the hackers making money from the PSN??
    They most likely would have shared the info with their affiliates of course....

    Anonymous is a notorious e-gang that takes big parts in 99% of all trolling and internet related incidents. Here is a list of things they/we have been a part of:

    Jessi Slaughter's attack
    Eric Douglace's defamation
    The popularity of almost all memes on the internet
    Hacking and temporarily shutting down Mastercard for 3 days.

    And much much more. Anonymous is huge; this is an isolated incident. Anonymous takes pride in the things they do.

    For this to go on almost unnoticed by any member(including myself), the hacker is either a successful anon or a hacker working for a rival corporation that is trying to make Anonymous look like the bad guys.

    Almost all the time Anonymous is the culprit, but I give you my honest opinion as a member that this is more than a few anons out for some lulz.
    Before you insult someone, walk a mile in their shoes
    That way, your a mile away and you have their shoes
