Wow, that sucks ...not cool ....especially for a Japanese company at this point....issue is though, they are more than capable of having better security....I think?

There are some EPIC games you can only get on PS3. inFamous, Gran T 5, Uncharted series, etc.

I've been waiting patiently for PSN now for almost 3 weeks.

You see - I hate these kinds of comments the most.
PC gaming is not safer and is the least safest out of all the platforms available. PCs are the most vulnerable things going - closed systems like the PS3, 360, and Wii are the only real platforms where you get the most security period. It's a super rare occurrence for something like this to happen, and I don't mean just in Sony's defense. I mean for any of the platform's companies.

On the PC you have keyloggers, RATs, trojans, worms, and god knows what else. Why does anyone need to even state this?
Sure, the hackers got your billing address and MAYBE your CC info by breaking into PSN due to Sony's stupidity. A rarity and almost unheard of. On the PC? This is a common day occurrence for information being stolen. While it still remains a question if the hackers got away with CC info, the PC is the place where you put all your information. Not just generic information.
You could enter you banking information, PINs, contact/business info, password to anything/everything, hell even this post I'm typing ~could be monitored. And antivirus is practically useless most of the time, trust me. All it takes is a wrong move from the user - and it's all over before you even know it's there.

These "PC users win again!" comments are seriously not even something to laugh about.

Anways, I didn't want to start a new news thread because there have been 15 different Sony threads going already. This one being the most common one:
Quote:
Spafford told the subcommittee that, according to security mailing lists he subscribes to, "individuals who work in security and participate in the Sony network" had learned "several months ago" that PSN was hosted on servers running "very old versions of Apache software that were unpatched and had no firewall installed."
http://www.joystiq.com/2011/05/05/ps...nstalled-secu/

Someone in another thread had mentioned it last week, now it's confirmed.
Now my question is: did this hack even originate from Rebugg like everyone has been either speculating or assuming? Did the PS3 itself have anything to do with it?

As much sense as this post makes, you just know that these stupids aren't gonna listen :/

On a side note, I wish they would put more $$,$$$,$$$.$$ into Arcades and PC games. Seems like most people are on consoles and arcades are way dead. I miss Mortal Kombat and Killer Instinct in arcades....where they belong.

Arcade is a dead market, it would not be smart for a company to invest much there.

yeah - the only major company that still even has their hands near arcades anymore is SEGA . It's a shame too.
