Spanish police arrest PSN hackers

Posted By | On 10th, Jun. 2011

The Spanish police have arrested three members of Anonymous in Barcelona who are suspected of having been heavily involved in the PSN hacks last month.

Cops said they picked up the trio in Barcelona after analysing more than two million lines recorded on web pages and chats.

“One of them had in his home a server on which they coordinated and executed computer attacks on government, financial and business web pages around the world,” police said in a statement.

The suspects are said to have launched online attacks on PSN, banks BBVA and Bankia, Italian power company Enel, and the governments of Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Iran, Chile, Colombia and New Zealand.
