The commercial flight of John Smedley, head of Sony Online Entertainment, has allegedly been rerouted due to Twitter users warning America Airlines that explosives are on board. These same users are also claiming responsibility for this morning’s apparent DDoS attackon the PlayStation Network, explaining that part of the group’s messaging is that Sony “should be paying for DDoS protection” with the revenue earned from PlayStation Plus.

Smedley tweeted earlier today that he would be flying to San Diego, later adding that his flight had been rerouted to Phoenix, seemingly due to concerns about “security and our cargo.” Smedley’s tweets match the flight pattern of AA Flight 362, shown in the above image from Flight Aware as well as AA’s online records.
