PS3 hacking war gets personal as Sony exec's private lives are intruded upon

Gaming, Tech Digest news

ps3-slim.jpgThe ongoing battle between PS3 hackers, Sony and their legal teams stepped up a notch today, as a splinter group of activists calling themselves “SonyRecon” have no turned their attention to upsetting the personal lives of Sony executives.

Aiming to gather dox (all available documentation or information pertaining to an individual online) on key Sony members, SonyRecon are looking to get personal.

The group’s chatroom recommends that SonyRecon members use the information in the following ways:

“Craigslist – Make an ad in the “free stuff” section, or in “erotic services” and “casual encounters” as is evident here there are many horny men who will relentlessly pursue someone who they believe to be 19/f.

STD Postcards – send one of these e-postcards notifying the target that one of their previous sexual partners has a STD. Makes for an uncomfortable wait for them. Alternatively call an AIDS hotline and ask them to anonymously tell the target they could have HIV, thats a 6 month wait until the test comes back.

Free UPS Boxes create an account and order the target a couple of hundred boxes & labels, fedex also offer free boxes.

Google Maps use Google maps to locate local businesses to mess with the target.

Call them:

Skype – Use skype to call the target. When you first register a skype account you get one free call…

IP Relay – Ask the operator not to announce at the start of the call. This is a service only available to people in the USA.”

How this will help the hacker’s cause in courts is anyone’s guess, but either way it’s an immature and unnessecary step, especially if the hackers plan on placing a legitimate case as to why they should be able to mod Sony’s machines in any way they choose.
