[PC Mag] Sony Pictures Confirms LulzSec Hack as Group Targets FBI - Page 10  

post #91 of 97
Oh lord. This thread is going nowhere. It's apparent why some you aren't legal consultants/lawyers/logical analysts.

Regardless if you think they deserve it or not, it's a crime. Simple as that.

Yes, Sony should be more careful, up their security, and then some.

Some of you have no morals it seems, and some of you are stating your beliefs a little too much. Get over it. It happened, and nothing you say/post is going to change this.

Sony will fix it. Why? Because Sony is not going anywhere. People love their products. People are in fact still buying PS3s, Sony TVs, and Blu Ray players.

A lot of people won't even remember this in about a year unless the attacks keep happening. And why won't they remember it? Because the consumer isn't the target (albeit their stupid decision to leak customer info).

Do really actually know what type of security Sony used? Most companies would have trouble standing up to the type of attention Sony has gotten from these misdirected hackers. Security is a great thing. But it only gets you but so far. Hacking Sony is now a nice way to get your group in the news. I'd imagine most are just starving for attention and recognition with being a "elite" hacker.

I'm thinking these attacks are coming from different parts of the world. Some of which are safer than others. My guess, FBI will get a hold of a few members and they will take the fall for the rest of the team. I doubt these hackers are sharing their names with one another so their isn't much option on selling people out.

It's funny how some people say that this is a good thing since it shows how crappy Sony's security is. Okay, but these very same hackers are now abusing the information they stole. They aren't just making a statement. They aren't the good guys.

LulzSec will probably be hired by the CIA/FBI like in the movie Catch me if you can (based on a true story). Or like how the Nazi scientists were hired by the US after Germany's surrender, and were brought on board to develop nuclear weaponry for The Manhattan Project.

Do I know the specifics? No. Do I know that they used either terribly out of date software or homebrew crap that didn't adequately address some basic web vulerabilities? Yes.

They could've hired just about anyone in the world to do basic penetration testing on their site and found the hole. It's such an incredibly amateur mistake that they could not have tested their own site's security without noticing the issue.

The group that hacked them publicly admitted that it wasn't an "elite" hack. The whole joke has been that they used SQL injection. It really is that simple. My mother could use SQL injection after 10 minutes on Google. Every site that retains personal information should be protected against injection.

Since a lot of you can't behave and have resorted to personal attacks,this thread will remain closed.
