surprising? The fact that Sony denied being made such an offer by hackers or that the hackers are apparently trying to sell of the info?

Stealing info on the internet isn't like stealing an item from the store.... The info is all still there, there is nothing to buy back. Even if it did work that way, what hacker would stick his neck out trying to actually make that transaction? The whole thing is ridiculous on so many levels. Who buys into this nonsense?

If anyone on the type of forum being described in the linked NY Times linked in the article made such a proposition it was purely in jest, just to get a laugh.

link, can't belief they're covering such filth. I mean they really think these hackers have all that info? It's ridiculous. Glad to know, Sony denied it outright. Also, the hackers aren't that dumb to call up Sony and offer them to sell it back.
