Anonymous threatens Sony with anti-SOPA attack
Coordinated teams of hacktivists will wage war on Sony on Monday to punish the company for supporting the controversial US Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).
The Anonymous collective plans to hack Sony.com and load the homepage with BitTorrent files that allow users to download copyright-protected music and movies -- the very action SOPA is designed to prevent.
Hackers also plan to strike Sony Music's online store, reducing the cost of songs to zero. If it is successful, personal details of company executives will also be plastered on the defaced homepage, in an act known as doxing.
