Opinion: Industry hasn't learnt from LulzSec

MCVUK: "From Nintendo to Bethesda and BioWare to Epic, LulzSec hit some of the biggest names in our industry. Not only were websites and forums brought to their knees, but the games themselves and the players within them, too. Popular online titles such as Minecraft and EVE Online were taken down in an instant.

LulzSec may have retired after its 50-day hacking blitz, but there are lessons we can all take from its spate of web-based security attacks. Other industries should take note of the problems games companies have faced over the past couple of months, while publishers should be better aware of external breaches.

Companies shouldn’t just sit by and watch their contemporaries and rivals fall victim to hacks. When hackers came for Nintendo’s website, and no other companies spoke out, then surely there will be no one to stand up for them when the inevitable happens. These kinds of attacks are crying out for united action."

The story is too old to be commented.

Someone needs to shut them down. I heard one of them got captured in England. Why would they implode their own industry?

learnt is perfectly acceptable... you remind me of the idiots who thought customisable was spelt wrong in the Uncharted3 beta. Yeah, spelt is acceptable too.

Please google search the word before you make yourself look like a complete ass.

Remember, whatever they teach you in school in the US DOES NOT mean that is the be all and end all of the english language. Gotta love it when North Americans follow the stereotype to a T.

These people only ruin the industry by posting the stolen info on the Net.
