As seen from Simon Parkin’s engaging chronicle about “The Boy Who Stole Half-Life 2“, German cops are really into turning up at the end of your bed in the dead of night while pointing their Sig Sauer P6s in your general, sleepy direction. Only if you’ve got an unhealthy penchant for hacking, of course.
According to a hacker on PSX-scene, the covert coder claims:
“Guys, SONY was today at my home with police and got all my stuff and accounts. So be careful from now on.”
The thought of Sony Special Agents accompanying the Stadtpolizei on a house raid is pretty incredulous. That said, it does look like the electronics giant is stepping up their assault on hackers both electronically and, it seems, in person.
As a retort, the hacker in question released his “”Hypervisor Bible” – a compendium of tools, tricks and secrets to assist others in continuing on the “cause.”
As always, TheSixthAxis not only frowns upon piracy and other forms of illegal activity, but we even grimace and grunt toward it, too.
