Bottom line is this:
Regardless of the fact that a company does NOT have to or does have encryption or at least security of some sort - Sony SHOULD for this type of information. A hacking situation for this "lesson" to be learned should not be necessary. It should already be implemented.

There doesn't need to be law. To say that there isn't a law, and that it's ok for this to happen just because of it, that isn't exactly an excuse.
I'm not saying it's okay...I'm saying:
Sony = Legal
Hacker = Illegal

Security is subjective...You'll feel however you will but, Sony Corp. has yet to do anything ILLEGAL warranting a response.

The hackers, did.

The hackers are at fault, NOT Sony regardless of how much encryption they should/should not have.

And again. Using Anything. Anything. that has known and public exploits is a violation of most every "security" rule and law.
You are absolutely, 100%, wrong.

This is the LAW:
Quote:
While the PCI DSS requires encryption for payment card data while it is in transit from one network to another (say the merchant to the payment processor), encryption is not required when payment data is within an internal network.
Inside an INTERNAL network, NO encryption is legally necessary...

Sony has MANY servers and just because 1 goes down, doesn't mean they will all fail...They also use multiple flavors of protection.

A hacker illegally broke into a LEGALLY PROTECTED server and STOLE user end data.

At the end of the day, yes Sony SHOULD amp up security but, that doesn't at ALL change the fact, that someone STOLE information from a "secure" network.

First, PCIDSS is an insurance scam and anyone who thinks it has anything to do with real security of anything other than prevention of being sued when you get hacked for your lack of proper security, .........
And for the last time. They were using systems and servers that had known public exploits. Even by PCI DSS, the credit information being sent out over an external network without being encrypted is a violation.

When did they send that info without encryption?

You have yet to provide ANY proof of any law beyond PCI DSS.

Last time or not, I said an internal network...and you have yet to prove me wrong on absolutely anything beyond a personal attack.

Regardless of how well secure you or anyone else views their network, by law, it was protected.

Is it just a contest between hackers to see who can bring down Sony faster, now?
post #177 of 185
Sony won't come down. It's a matter of free press at this point.
