Geohot, the hacker who has had more than his fair share of trouble with the big guns at Sony, has denied having anything to do with the devastating attack which took the Playstation Network offline.
“To anyone who thinks I was involved in any way with this, I’m not crazy, and would prefer to not have the FBI knocking on my door,” he said this morning.
“Running homebrew and exploring security on your devices is cool, hacking into someone elses server and stealing databases of user info is not cool You make the hacking community look bad, even if it is aimed at douches like Sony.”
Geohot says the blame for this catastrophic breach falls at the feet of “the executives who declared a war on hackers, laughed at the idea of people penetrating the fortress that once was Sony, whined incessantly about piracy, and kept hiring more lawyers when they really needed to hire good security experts.”
“Alienating the hacker community is not a good idea,” he notes.
