Sir Ken you are funny as allways
sir ken you make me laugh! humor bubbles!
Don't people have anything more constructive to do with their time?
accounts being stolen on the PSN network is not news?
you are going to see a lot more of this until the PSN is made more secure, why do you think MS chose a closed network.
Sorry dude I misread your post, you meant don't hackers have anyhting better to do didn't you.
tudors...yep I was talking about hackers.
Here is the E-mail I just received from Sony. While the translation in the article is pretty accurate this is the "Full" English user release... PLAYSTATION(R)Network ----------------------------- ------------------------------ - ------------------------------ - ---- Dear Customer We have recently discovered the possibility of unauthorized access to personal information on the PLAYSTATION(R)Store through PCs, a content download service of the PLAYSTATION(R)Network.

probably some *bots
Btw nameless cant u see the asterick fool^^
Hey kingik The Open Zone is > > > > > that way
hahah, the arrow is a nice touch.
dont u see the asterik fool!
nice one bubbles my friend
it was going to happen sooner or later. just like how i predict that within the frist 24 hours of home's release someone will put porn up on a screen in thier apartment. watch
well thats obvious.
So what if they do, How does that hurt anybody? Sony's not going to bann you cause you view porn in your private apartment space.
Anyways, attempted hack on the PC store is inevitable since it's on the PC. Is there any major online store that hackers don't want to hack?
Sony's people knew what to expect when putting this on the PC and they have their guys combating this jsut like every other major retailer does. It's just the way the world flows right now.
Rules are rules you still used (bots)
I have to agree with nameless, you may have not used the term but you definitely implied it.
that better not be me. I'm afraid to check.
just because we cannot use the *bot* word does not mean you are then ok to say this
"7.1 - @ that Bum Who doesnt have a Name
i knew you where for the greenside you cesspool of $hit"
That also belongs in the open zone.
You know normally Id respond to that kingijbut Im not going to do the immature thing that your doing & stoop down to your level especially since user bashing against the rules. I will let the mods see that since that will speak for itself Hey tudors that was my first reply but Im now just going to let kingij speak for himself & let the mods see what hes doing. Theres a difference in saying something first & not after
"Hey kingik The Open Zone is > > > > > that way"
make your mind up 'nameless', if you were going to leave it to the mods you would not have even brought it up.
are you unable to see that my complaint is against kingik?
but now I see you are just as bad, don't have a go at me for sticking up for you and then calling me imature, I am 35yrs old, judging by your reply you are quite a bit younger than that, don't backtrack dude, you cannot change the rules just to fit your own agenda.
so the PC store was hacked not the the PlayStation store from the console.
time will tell.
that sucks... PSN is just starting to gain a decent volume of users... and is already being successfuly hacked?
It seems as if hackers are having lots of Fun with Sony these days... PSP firmware, Blu-ray, PSN.... What else is left to hack? I was going to say, Sony better change their entire network to use Linux/Unix... but wait... they are already doing that... and here I am thinking that only Microsoft/Windows gets hacked... (end sarcasm).
Welcome to the big dogs battle Zone Sony.... the fact is... if you are worth enough of hacking... you will be hacked!... it's a lot harder to build Security than to crack it.
No credit cards were used for transactions...so basically all they did was change their login passwords...woo? maybe delete a few friends? add friends? I'm not sure...but basically all they could do was access the store...and if they want buy a game from their own card...sweet. Doesn't seem to "omg no no hackers no!!" to me. Besides...if you can't login with your password...use the "I forgot my password" feature that every site with a login has.
I never used the PSN Store on PC, but what if the hacker changed the email address. Then you are SOL is my guess.
sorry, I couldnt help it!
Real Hackers do things for the Bragging. Script Kiddy's do the Harm.
Zomg, the PS3 fangirls led me to believe that this is only possible on a crappy unsecured network like Xbox Live. How can this be? Black magic? TEH POS3 IS PERFACT!!!
Xbox live had the same issues. Somebody hack xbox live stealing you account and gamertag. Now that its happen to psn it a big issues. And psn is Now bu11sh:t? Wow..... This really shows you that being bias can make you blind and sometimes a retard.
Heres a couple of links for ya'll non believers
http://blogs.zdnet.com/secu... http://kotaku.com/gaming/to... http://www.maxconsole.net/?...
I remember the sony guys making it a big deal when the "xbox got hacked" stories popped up on N4G so it's ok for "xbox getting hacked" stories to be posted but not the "ps3 gets hacked" stories? Wow you really need to sort out your logic.
Just cause its an article about PSN getting hacked, so it shouldnt have been posted is that what you are saying? Should i post some links of some forums where all the sony peeps were talking smack cause the live got hacked. Are you trying to justify to make the ps3 look perfect i dont understand the logic by the sonyfanboys. So what it got hacked they will fix it, my account didnt get stolen did your's?
Someone that disagrees with me?
F all you mods banning me from the gamerzone F A G S
I think i need to clarify to people (a.k.a. Bladestar) that it was the PC store that was broken into, not PSN itself.
I rest my case.
Apparently your in so much denial, you didn't even bother to check out QuietStorm's links. Your zone is that way--------->
Considering Microsoft doesn't have a PC Store for Xbox Live...
Totally different situation.
IN the case of Xbox LIVE, those links goto social-engineering problems. NOT AT ALL WHAT HAS HAPPENED HERE.
This is apples and oranges. PSN was violated by poor software security.
Are you people that goddanmed desperate that you'll just start confusing the subject?
Are you people serious?
The LIVE has never been _hacked_. The PSN has.
That's exactly what I was talking about. I never said that it shouldn't be posted. I'm just responding to:
"you are going to see a lot more of this until the PSN is made more secure, why do you think MS chose a closed network."
Ya'll fanboys are just stupid.
My logic is how are you going to bash the psn when the live has/had the same problem.
OH! FYI... I don't have a console of choice, because I have the option of all three.
LIVE has *never* been hacked. Ever.
Now, the Playstation (as we see by this article) -- the PSN HAS been hacked.
Not LIVE. you're making crap up.
Another reason why its a good idea to go with a software company for this generation.
This is just the beginning of the pain for Sony (IMO). They have no idea what they've opened themselves up to allowing un-controlled code to run on the PSN.
