Years? Maybe if they employ ham handed mongoloids to maintain their servers it might take years.

Well, sure Sony should have had better protection against breaches. The sad reality though is that hackers will ALMOST always be one step ahead. It really isn't fair to judge a company because they got hacked, unless they didn't do all they possibly could to prevent it. I understand that it is difficult to keep security updated all the time since it is an ever changing game. But it is my understanding that Sony's security could have been better, especially since i remember them actually being aware of certain risks in their security months prior to the attack...at least i read that somewhere.

My gripe in this is the fact that Sony stored all details, on all their different servers....in plaintext. Now, even a simple encryption would make sure that hackers could spend AGES decrypting 25k different documents, it wouldn't even be worth it actually. So if they would at least have encrypted the data then i wouldn't be so displeased. Mind you i do not own a Sony console or have a Sony account, i do have a Sony TV though ( They do make nice TVs, will give them that ). So i ain't pissed because i couldn't play online for a few weeks, i am pissed because this is a disgrace.

at the latest they should have beefed up security sytems when they took geohotz to court. Sony probably had something to do with the meltdown coverup too.

I don't think you could ever build a hacker proof network and still have access able to average joe, no matter how high you build a wall some will eventually climb over it, unfortunately thats the world that we live in now, one eye constantly over our shoulder

They could at least not store data in plain text for starters... Even a freshman computer scientist could do better.

You don't have to have it locked down so much that you can't even use it either. Google doesn't have security breaches like this.

Sega won't be coming back anytime soon until they get their act together. I mean christ....look at their history since the dreamcast failed...for whatever reason. Just Sonic repeats. They published Condemned so how they didn't see their calling is beyond me.

The only reason dreamcast failed is because everyone wanted the cheap DVD player that also played games, Yes the PS2... If sega come back that means we will have proper games back (on the next sega console that is) You know the ones with high scores and crazy soundtracks, Or RPG's that will take over 100 hours to finish, Annnnnd they WILL make shenmue 3 on it

Google may not have breaches like this, at least none the tell us about, remember sony tried to hide the hack in the first place, but yeah i agree they could have done more to stave off the breach
