The engineer rats down in the labs are another story. I don't mean that in any diminishing way mind you.
Sony isn't one person or one combined hive mind. The executives represent the company name but that doesn't mean the people behind the scenes necessarily agree with what's being done and/or said.
The executives probably didn't have a clue. It isn't like they said,"Don't update the apache software." They probably don't even know what Apache is.

30 million but not assuming there are multiple or even dead accounts as well as accounts that do NOT have CC info even on it.
Not to mention, Sony isn't going to come to you about it. It's not like every account instantly gets Fraud Protection. The consumers has to come and get it from Sony, in other words register/apply for it, and also which will probably be a short window of time or something.
Who knows what kind of deal they managed to get too.Edited by OmegaNemesis28 - 5/6/11 at 11:08am
