3 Spaniards Arrested Over PSN Attack

3 Spaniards Arrested Over PSN Attack

Police in Spain recently arrested three suspects in connection to the recent PSN attack, according to a report in the New York Times. The three were apparently members of Anonymous, the hacking group that had been responsible for previous hits against Sony, but who had denied being behind the recent hack that left millions of PlayStation customers’ personal information vulnerable.

One of the computers seized in the arrests was found to be linked not only to the attack on PlayStation Network, but also to a number of other hacking cases, including two attacks against Spanish banks, BBVA and Bankia, the Italian energy company Enel, as well as government sites in Spain, Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Iran, Chile, Colombia and New Zealand.

Although these men were linked at least in part to the attacks against Sony, it is not clear if they are the only ones involved, or if their are others.
