Anonymous says it hacked 10M PSN accounts; Sony disagrees
Anonymous claims to have struck again as far as the Sony PlayStation Network is concerned, but the whole matter appears to be a hoax.
A tweet posted on Wednesday to the Twitter account of the infamous international hacker group asserted that the PlayStation Network had been hacked again.
Kotaku also linked to a tweet that reportedly read 10 million PSN accounts were at risk, but that tweet has since been deleted. However, it's possible that these tweets were deleted because the claims were unsubstantiated. Shane Bettenhausen, who works in Sony's business development unit retaliated on his on Twitter account, retorted by arguing that the claims were false.
