Three Members of Anonymous Arrested for PlayStation Hack

The Spanish police have finally made some arrests in response to the Sony PlayStation hack and they're saying that all three people detained are members of Anonymous. Anonymous, as a group, has denied any involvement in the security breach, with some saying that the collective cannot be blamed for the work of a few.

Spanish police have arrested three people they say were involved in hacking Sony's Playstation Network, which recently shut down for a month as some 77 million users' information was compromised. And they say the suspects are members of Anonymous. The police announced the arrests on their official Twitter feed: "Police arrested 3 #Anonymous leaders in Barcelona, Alicante & Almería. They attacked governments of Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Colombia..." The police force also said the hackers had attacked the PlayStation Store, and had "thousands of 'zombies' computers infected all over the world."
