Alleged PSN Hackers Arrested

Three men suspected of being a part of hacker group Anonymous, which is most well known for launching attacks against Sony’s PlayStation Network, were arrested today.  Anonymous is also thought to be behind attacks on Spanish Banks BBVA and Italian energy provider Enel SpA.

All three men were Spanish and in their 30s. They were arrested because they coordinated attacks from Gijon, Spain.

Anonymous is reported to be made up of independent cells and use infected ‘zombie’ computers to make coordinated attacks that could plausibly take down “a computer’s administrative structure”, according to the police.
