You may remember when Anonymous hacked Sony a short time ago, more recently on the 28th December, Anonymous announced through their YouTube channel that they will again be attacking Sony’s network.

The reason for this attack is due to Sony’s support towards the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA. If you don’t want to watch the video or your finding it hard to follow here’s the rundown of what it is saying:
It has come to the attention of the Anonymous activist community that you have chosen to stand by the Stop Online Piracy Act. This act will halt online businesses and restrict access to many sites for many users. Supporting SOPA is like trying to throw an entire company from off a bridge. Your support to the act is a signed death warrant to SONY Company and Associates. Therefore, yet again, we have decided to destroy your network. We will dismantle your phantom from the internet. Prepare to be extinguished. Justice will be swift, and it will be for the people, whether some like it or not. Sony, you have been warned. [sic]
Alongside this Anonymous have also said that this will not be an attack on the PS Network itself but instead on Sony’s entire network. As of yet though the actions for this threat are still yet to be seen, personally I have no doubt they may just attack Sony again, but just not sure why they need to.
