I always thought that if you were anonymous, you were supposed to stay unknown, right.  Well, the people behind the PSN attack apparently didn’t follow the rules of anonymity.  They basically ratted themselves out via online chat.  Spanish police, specializing in cyber crime, found the hackers through thousands of online chats to find the members.  They are currently facing charges of conspiracy, punishable by sentences ranging from 2 to 3 years in prison.  Since Anonymous doesn’t have any central leadership, the suspects were called “leaders of the Spanish section.”  The crazy part about all of this, is that Sony did find a source file on the serves that had “We are legion.” This is a calling card of Anonymous.  Since then, Anonymous has proclaimed their innocence and suggested that there is someone out there acting in their name.  I guess being anonymous finally kicked them in the ass.
