[NYT] Sony’s Security Problems Could Take Years to Fix - Page 2

post #11 of 32
Thread Starter 
Sony is already suffering from record losses...

I just can't see how this company could not foresee going after a hacker could bring about a negative result...

I mean come on, people have friends, and probably since he is a hacker, maybe he has hacker friends too?

I'm sad that, your brought this on yourself Sony, really...

Now the public has to suffer for your emotional outrage which may end up costing you the company, I just hope I'm wrong...

Maybe the next corporation will learn from Sony's mistake, something even the department of defense even tried to impart to George W. Bush, "Going after one man can be an extremely expensive endeavor!"

...How did they bring this upon themselves?

Seriously, as an admin, I fail to see that reasoning.

They thought their security was enough...Legally, it is...Hackers have developed beyond that standard...

All that's been proven so far by Sony being hacked is that 80% of the worlds security, isn't up to par.

I am a former Employee of SoE and I'm very familiar with their security...If you think you have more, think again.

Did you by any chance follow all the BS Sony was pulling in the recent months. After they got jailbroke, Sony tried forcing google to hand over all of the IP addresses of anyone who posted and commented on the how to videos of jailbreaking the PS3. Sony promised linux support for PS3 then took it away. When Sony went after the hacker the judge said he was out of jurisdiction or whatever and Sony tried playing it off that the internet is a public wide something or other and they should be able to pursue him. Judge says if that's the case then the whole country is his backyard. Sony went to a different judge to get it okay'd then went after him. Sony also knew about their falling in behind of security....a network that held credit card details but yet they didn't fix anything.

Sony isn't a good company nor are they innocent in any aspect. I for one agree they get what they deserve. Karma.

...Who cares? You don't have to own a playstation...You don't have to own a sony product...And if you do, then you supported them.

You have the freedom to buy other products, that doesn't give you the right to claim Karma or do something illegal.

BTW, I happen to be a Buddhist and I'm offended by your use of "Karma".

Secondly, everyone is falling behind in security, not just Sony...All the attacks did were prove that the vast majority of the world isn't up to par.

Are you up to par? I think not.

As a former employee and someone that had their info stolen, including having my social SOLD to 2nd hand users...I can GUARENTEE you Anonymous profited...So, who's the evil corp. now? The ones who claimed justice and profited? Or the evil corporation they attacked and the MANY that were thusly effected?

If it is true that a cross scripting vulnerability allowed the intiital breach based upon previous press releases, Sony was not in compliance with the PCI requirements. PCI requirements explicitly mentioned eliminating cross scripting vulnerabilities. Furthermore, prudent security design would have segregated the CC information in a separate network segment with limited access. From the public disclosures that was not done.

Well, its taken years to get this bad so it will likely take years to get better. I wasn't expecting it to be better overnight. If they had only been hacked a few years ago they would probably have been in a better spot. Hackers got lazy...it is a hackers job to keep network security people on their toes. Well, actually there probably just has gotten too many places to hack and there just ins't enough time for it all.
