Ars Technica reports that sources within Sony's hosting provider belittled Anonymous' cyber-attack as "medium strength," and something that only "annoyed our network engineers." The hosting service's plan is to wait out Anonymous until the attackers get bored.
Sony sites have gone up and down through the week, to the point that Anonymous called off an assault on PlayStation Network, considering gamers using the service to be blameless victims. But the network engineer Ars quoted said sites only went down early in the assault, as they maneuvered to block what was a large number of incoming IP addresses carrying out the attack. Sony's jobs site is reportedly the current target.
