Sony Pictures website and facebook page have been hacked yet again by the “Hacktivist” Anonymous hacking group. Anonymous  threatened to hack  Sony few weeks ago for supporting the controversial SOPA bill and now it’s obvious that the threat was not just ” Big Talk”

The hack basically affected Sony Picture’s website and Sony Pictures official  Facebook page, according to media reports ”Many Comments and posts were left on the web pages as well as on Sony’s facebook page”. All tweets and posts have been removed now.

Hackers conducted the hacking operation by the name of ”Op Sony” and were noted through the @s3rver_exe Twitter account. “#OpSony SonyPictures Hacked! by s3rver.exe, Anonnerd and N3m3515,” says a tweet from that user, who continued, “I uploaded a @YouTube video (link removed) Sony Pictures Hacked By Anonymous.

 

Anonymous left the following message on Sony Picture website Your support of 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,
The hack wasn’t big, but still the servers were vulnerable and I got access to the admin too,” Hacker Said.
It was Anonymous in 2011 that created difficulties for  Sony in 2011 when they were able to hack into company’s online gaming network and stealing the login information of thousands of users, forcing the system offline for several weeks.
