And we're supposed to "love" hackers because they're on "our" side? Wow.

These hackers are fighting the hacker vs Sony cause.
Sony decided to try and make a point and look whats happening.

Theres a blog from 1 of the head security guys at sophos:

This is hack number 13 and im most cases data has been stolen and is now being posted online.

I liked sony in general, they make decent TV's and I love my PS3 - but from all of this it shows Sony's lack of interest in protecting My/Our personal INFO.

I really feel sorry for the people who have had their info posted on the net, but we are all at risk here.
Its only a matter of time before the PSN breach data is posted.
@blackhoode - most large companies deal with daily hacks, but MS learned years ago - Run a hack responsibility program where if a vulnerability is found let MS know and you get a reward.
Sony really should do that, although every Sony attack has been using the SQL injection which is very basic.

You think anyone is buying that?

Anyone older that 12 knows that all those hackers want is an unprotected device so they can sell pirated software.

They are pissed off because Sony's got balls to try and stop them.

r1sh122723d ago

WHere did I say anything about piracy?
All I said was sony could have avoided this if they had a responsible hacking program like MS.

If they used the knowledge of the hacks by finding out how the hackers got in they could have protected their system and avoided all of this. SO many people said "Employ some of the hackers".

Even apple recently employed someone who jailbroke their phone and IOS5 will have better notifications on the closed system.

GrandTheftZamboni2723d ago

Sure, they could have avoided if they didn't try to do anything about protecting their and their' partners intelectual property. Even if hackers come out victorius, at least Sony showed they got balls in dealing with them.

I mentioned pirates because you make this hacking look like a fight with a good cause. And, also because this is what it's all about. Sony couldn't care less what you or me or Geohot do with our equipment, but posting stolen PS3 keys online is what allows for playing pirated games.

If you buy your games, you should try to get most out of your money. Would you rather have it spent on game development or dealing with hackers? PSN downtime cost millions of dollars. I'm sure that big chunk of it would have gone for new
games or new products.
