Today, Sony took another step along the road to redeeming themselves after the PSN fiasco. Kaz Hirai submitted written answers to the House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce’s sub committee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade. The aim was clearly to outline some of the issues the company has faced in the wake of the now infamous “external intrusion”.
The full account can be accessed via the US PlayStation Blog but perhaps the most pertinent line comes is the disclosure that a file was found on the attacked Sony Online Entertainment server “named ‘Anonymous’ with the words ‘We are Legion.'” This has caused numerous sources around the internet to reignite their accusations that the famous, amorphous internet group was behind the attack after all.
In truth, it’s just as likely that the planted file was a show of support, a deliberate attempt to throw investigators off the scent or simply an aspiring hacker assuming justification for what he was doing could be found in some sort of thinly understood political allegiance. All other Anonymous sources have denied involvement.
