Anonymous releases yet another in depth press release. While many Sony fans are seemingly convinced Anonymous has been behind the recent hack attacks on Sony, They still claim their not involved nor support any of these attacks.

For the first time in a press release Anonymous seems to be on the defensive now. But for many of us who really did not know about the group before operation on Sony, they provide insight and how they operate and why. They hint at having some members houses raided by federal agents. They also detail how they allow free press to sit in their rooms and observe how they operate and get their feedback on operations.

Normally anonymous press releases have a hint of humor added in. This seems to be very serous in nature, while still claiming to be false targeted. To many who have not followed whats happened. Anonymouse never denied the Ddos attacks on PSN servers or the rally (that many considered a major failure). Now they are not only denying these recent events they are claiming to never or would ever be involved in something like credit card theft. In light of this press release, news has sparked of a potential third Sony attack coming.

Its a long press release so anyone wanting to read the full page should visit the source.

Last month, an unknown party managed to break into Sony (http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/sony)'s servers and acquired millions of customer records including credit card numbers. Insomuch as that this incident occurred in the midst of Anonymous (http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/anonymous)' OpSony, by which participants engaged in several of our standard information war procedures against the corporation and its executives, Sony and other parties have come to blame Anonymous for the heist.
1. Anonymous has never been known to have engaged in credit card theft.
2. Many of our corporate and governmental adversaries, on the other hand, have been known to have lied to the public about Anonymous and about their own activities. HBGary, for instance, was caught lying a number of times to the press, to the public, and to Anonymous itself (in this phone call, for instance (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VENYttckfwM&feature=youtube_gdata)), CEO Aaron Barr makes a number of untrue statements regarding the intent of his "research", claiming for instance that he never tried to sell the information to the FBI when emails acquired soon showed that he had been set to do just that; executive Karen Burke was also caught lying to Bloomberg about having not seen an incriminating email that she had in fact replied to just a few days before].
3. To the contrary, Anonymous is an ironically transparent movement that allows reporters in to our operating channels to observe us at work and which has been extraordinarily candid with the press when commenting on our own activities, which is why reporters prefer no talk to us for truthful accounts of the situation rather than fallacious public relations departments of our targets.
4. In the realm of criminal investigation, there is an important aspect of investigations that should never be overlooked. The "modus operandi" of a criminal rarely changes. Whoever did perform the credit card theft did so contrary to the "modus operandi" and intentions of Anonymous. Public support is not gained by stealing credit card info and personal identities, we are trying to fight criminal activities by corporations and governments, not steal credit cards.

5.If a legitimate and honest investigation into the credit card is conducted, Anonymous will not be found liable. While we are a distributed and decentralized group, our "leadership" does not condone credit card theft. We are concerned with erosion of privacy and fair use, the spread of corporate feudalism, the abuse of power and the justifications of executives and leaders who believe themselves immune personally and financially for the actions they undertake in the name of corporations and public office.Anunymous will continue its work in support of transparency and individual liberty; our adversaries will continue their work in support of secrecy and control. The FBI will continue to investigate us for crimes of civil disobedience while continuing to ignore the crimes planned by major corporations which use their services.

We do not forgive, even if others forgive our enemies for those things for which we are attacked.
We do not forget, even if others fail to remember.
We are legion, and will remain so no matter how many of our participants are raided by armed agents of a broken system.
We are Anonymous.
Expect us.
