You don't know that! Stop thinking like you do! Where is your evidence of this? Just because it happened means nothing, as this can happen to any major company at any given time. There is ALWAYS an exploit somewhere.
You also act like this is the first time this has ever happened to customer information being breached.
Have you been around for the past 3 months or so?
All of the customer data in Epsilon was breached. Do you know who Epsilon is? They are a company which sends 40 billion emails annually on behalf of more than 2,500 clients. By clients, they mean companies such as:
While only a "subset" of information was breached, they were JUST like Sony. They have no idea what info was taken or whom's info was taken. The only thing they do no was that no CC info was taken. Anything from names, emails, and yes - billing addresses in some cases too could have been taken.
Look at some of those "clients". We're talking actual banks and companies like Disney. Yet you sit here and act like this is the first security breach of information ever and that "this is all Sony's fault" and "how they should be sued". If a massive information sensitive company like Epsilon, that holds info for MILLIONS of different kinds of consumers, and they get breached. Wake up call - anyone can be breached.
And then you compare Sony to BP. Are you serious? CorkyFan said the same exact thing.
How can you even possibly compare BP, who was drilling oil in the ocean, and had a massive rig explosion that killed people. The following result was an oil spill that killed alot of animals and endangered the entire damn ocean eco-system in that area and then some. Still has effects even to this day.
Yet, here you are sitting here trying to compare an information breach, of which is nothing compared to Epsilon, to a WAY more serious accident that killed people and animals.
Names, emails and addresses are bad, but cc info is unforgivable. Actually talk to an ID theft victim before bringing your trash against my opinion. I can compare anything to anything. If 77 million people get their cc info stolen, used, ID theft etc, that's a GIANT deal. Does it kill people, no. But the point of the comparison is valid. its not comparing the severity of the situation. It's comparing corporation sympathizers for one event with corporation sympathizers for another event. That was the point. The customer is not at fault AT ALL, and to defend Sony is functionally equivalent to blaming the consumer.
