I'm sure their reputation was tarnished in the process.

Sony Online had their reputation slightly tarnished. Don't get me wrong, I had a wrong choice of words for Sony's involvement, but in reality, Sony has their surface back up in running where the ones who caused the incident was not Sony.

Sony has given back to the community offering a free month and a few other goodies. This for a free service where they are willing to pay for ANY damages for those who are effected by the breach. No one has anything to worry.

These "hackers" only damaged themselves in reality. They are now wanted, hurt the gaming community in which most of them supposedly stand for, and put millions at risk of their investment. Sony Online has their reputation bruised, but those effected were the user base. Sony CEOs have nothing to lose. They'll still have a nice 3 month vacation at the end of their involvement with Sony. Hackers on the other hand, no where near.

Sony will need serious luck finding them. The guys who hacked them are professionals.

Spamming an unprotected server and running a remote server makes you a professional?

Don't underestimate the power of $$. You never know, they will probably get what they want if their rewards are good enough. If i know who did the hack and Sony offers 50k-100k, i would tell them.

If I owned a big business and somebody hacked my uncrackable security I'd just offer them a job working in security since they obviously know what they're doing. Of course with a pay deduction to pay any damages.

This should be genuinely illegal. I get sick and tired of reading of the latest hacker being offered a job at his/hers victims office. It's an ultimate reward for participating in an illegal activity. I don't care what they "stand for" it is illegal to gain access to and take information from a server which is not yours.

There are plenty of well trained and able and willing security experts out there who go through the right channels, get their degrees and then work hard for a job position. Them and only them should be considered for a position, not some basement hacker who thought he'd be doing the world a favour by taking out a used service and stealing private details.

There is NO way this is happening, or at least not because of the hacks.

There maybe well trained security experts who work hard, I wouldn't be replacing them I would be hiring the "basement dweller" to find anything that my well trained guys left out or didn't know about. I don't want some other hacker coming in and getting past my security again so why not take extra precautions. If someone does the job well why can't I hire them? I don't mean I would hire them if I was in Sony's position, if they like enabled piracy on my product I would want that stopped.
