The amount of ignorance already shown in this thread is pretty sad.

Let's hope not.

my PS3 is and has been nothing but a media player for me now for over 12months, i couldnt care less about PSN. it's very annoying for all the people affected im sure. hopefully they learn from this and rebuild their network rather than just trying to stop the bleeding or plug holes whichever it may be.

Im having a hard time understanding how such a big company, even one that deals in computer related products, can have such a flawed security. How is this possible ?
omg, post 500!

I do not really have any sympathy for Sony. They treated their customers like trash for too many years.

I cannot believe they would not secure, you know... their entire Worldwide infrastructure. confused.gif

My company got jacked by Confiker virus at corporate years ago, and we had to go through the exercise of cleaning over 50k desktops because of it.

Caused by a tech going on a 2 week vacation, and no one staged the October Microsoft Patches. Jan 1 we got hammered when the virus woke up.

We then of course got our A/V company online, and did a worldwide PC group enema...

That sucked but it's now not a problem getting Management to provide backing for monthly quarantine actions & locking ANY PC off the Network if it's late with Patch updates.

Anyone that is still supporting the people hacking Sony has absolutely no compassion for fellow human beings.

Don't you see that what the hackers are doing is illegal, and hurts the consumer alot more than it does Sony? If you think thousands of people having their information and/or money stolen from them is a fair trade to cost Sony some reputation and money - then never approach me in real life, I'm 99% sure that after 5 seconds of talking to you I would want to smack you in the face.

Why is everyone so concerned with their information being stolen? Facebook sells that off to the highest bidder, with no complaints. Having money stolen is terrible, but sony has already put counter measures in place for anyone affected. I am more concerned that sony wasn't prepared for another attack. They took down their networks for almost a month and are still not prepared. This is funny since they attacked the hacker communities, and then got hacked. After that Sony insulted the hacker communities again with a bad analogy, and now we see the repercussions. I am not going to shed a tear for the hackers if they get caught. Yet it is humorous to see sony drop the ball over, and over again.
