It looks like the hackers known as Anonymous aren’t too pleased with the outcome of the DDOS attack against Sony’s websites and the Playstation Network itself and are now looking into the targeting a number of Sony executives.
Another group calling itself “SonyRecon,” is looking to attack them on a more personal level. The group are asking it’s members to get gather personal information about the employees and any useful information about their targets. While the specifics of the attacks are unknown, some suggestions left in the groups chatroom includes:
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.
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.
On top of the suggested ideas, Sony exescutive Robert S. Wiesenthal has had a ton of personal information like “marital status, age, place of address, education and even whether he has children” released online. Sony’s law firm also resulted in a DDOS attack, taking their website down as well.
While some may find it heroic, I can’t help but to believe the attacks are very juvenile and somewhat an act of online terrorism.
