[Yahoo]Sony Hit with Two New Cyber Attacks - Page 13

post #121 of 136
If these guys get caught they'll be in serious trouble..

And even worse, if they just hack small portions of Sony's infrastructure they could be blamed, even partially, on the PSN hack assuming it was done by different groups/people..

Hell, a lot of PC gamers are affected as they hacked and stole details of PC users with Sony games.
...and capitalism teaches us that customers will no longer buy it if Sony increases prices because there are alternatives to pretty much all products that Sony offers.

If anything, Sony has to lower prices for there to be any incentive for people to buy another Sony product.

This is really getting out of hand though. I hope they get this under control soon.

As a PS3 owner I must say this is so ridiculous now, these attacks are just getting out of hand; people's money is being stolen.. personal data being exposed how is this funny? If people were hacking Valve/Steam; and people's personal data was being exposed; everyone would be up in arms here..

I don't understand it, oh well.. just my two cents I guess.

Cool story bro's I'm too busy having fun on Black Ops to care TBH

I'm surprised to be honest that it got out of control to this point. At first I was ok with them just hacking PSN but taking people's info is way overboard. Sony really need to step up on their security

It's not funny that innocent consumers are caught up in this, consumers who thought the company they were paying would actually make customer data security their highest priority.
It's funny that a company like Sony, you now the people that tried installing rootkits without telling anyone, is getting their ass handed to them repeatedly. There again I have a twisted sense of humour I guess.

Like the way games prices went from £29.99 to £39.99... and we start to see them going to £49.99.

Because games are unique entities, developers/publishers can just can just put up prices and so will their competitors. If the products were identical, then a price based unique selling point would be more important.

If the hackers use the credit card there, will Sony pay those victims?

After reading through alot of the comments in this thread, it's confired - OCN (atleast the news section) has been over-run by pre-teens.
