Two weeks into the PlayStation Network outage, new information has surfaced about the possible nature of the hack that forced Sony to bring the network down in the first place.  Responding to a Congressional inquiry regarding the attack, Sony revealed that the hackers left behind a file specifically linking the job to hacker collective Anonymous.
