Fauxnonymous Strikes Again? Eidos Site Hacked, User Info Snatched - Techland - TIME.com

It's getting to the point where Anonymous is like the Eye of Sauron: You don't even want them looking in your general direction. As reports of the internet bogeyman collective's splintering eke out, people formerly affiliated with Anonymous–who may or may not be responsible for the Playstation Network outage–continue to wreak havoc on video game-related websites.

The latest breach involves Eidos, the company best known for the Tomb Raider franchise, and the website for their upcoming action RPG Deus Ex: Human Revolution. According to KrebsOnSecurity.com, the responsible parties tried to pin the hack on the "Ryan" who outed the internal strife amongst the ranks of Anonymous. Along with being scapegoated by angry fellow hackers, "Ryan"'s former comrades also leaked personal information about him. The Krebs link includes a chatlog from alleged culprits "ev0" and "nigg" where they discuss their plan of attack. In addition to defacing the official website for the upcoming Deus Ex title, the hackers apparently made off with personal data on 80,000 users who visited Eidos' websites.
