uh you do realize that credit card info and other sensitive information were stolen right?

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.

Solid proof PSN credit cards are being used for fraud:

post #104 of 111
Not sure how much to trust those "emails" people sent in... buying an Airline ticket is one of the most idiotic things to do with a stolen credit card. There a Thousands of people that have used CC on the Sony PSN I think this would be a lot larger news that major news locations would be reporting. With a stolen CC you rack as much untraceable purchases as possible knowing that at any min they might cancel it.

Just my thoughts....

At least the dude has a better case against Sony than Sony has against people that want to use Linux or Homebrew...

PSN is weak, and always was weak.
post #106 of 111
i can tell you now. there are quite a few soldiers whose CC info were stolen during this whole thing...and they are not happy.

weve already had to deal with the government possibly shutting down, getting no pay, getting half paid, losing money...now stolen CC info?

yea...not looking good. there are people on this guys side who are going through some crap.

i hope he wins.

The problem is that this guy has to show that Sony went outside of the standard of storing personal information and knew that there was a hole in their security which they chose to ignore. It's like suing your bank because they were robbed and your money was stolen. If Sony was correctly protecting the info that was stolen then this man has no claim in court.
