I'm a former employee of Sony, SOE corp. and I still have many friends there; the above statement is an absolute fallacy.

After the attacks Sony moved in with a "security firm" to actually establish some control and evaluate the damage. Immediately after that, improvements in Sony's security began and are still on-going.

So, security was upgraded and actually "ponied" onto the servers. Not that it really mattered or would have made a difference considering the servers that Lulz uses but, saying they did nothing, is truly ignorant.

The only thing that I wish lulzec would do is hack motorola's servers and get the atrix bootloader unlocked

...I'm really not at liberty to say but, quite honestly, do you really think it would've mattered?

Sony did the best they could in as little time as they could...I'm sorry if that's not good enough for you or the rest of OCN but, at least they tried.

Lulz makes Anonymous look like a tinker toy and unfortunately, I'd wager they have the capability to make it into almost any server with the exception of a few.

I'd love to see your security "network" stand up to them.

I do think Sony should have had the personal information encrypted, plain text isn't good.

Are you sure it's not you who doesn't?

You keep talking about one cannot fully protect a website, or how it's hard to find "hidden vulnerabilities", like it's not their job to discover them, and they simply wait for the hackers to do so and they simply patch them up.
All I've asserted is that it's impossible to completely secure a website. I never said they simply wait for hackers to patch, but the reality is many exploits/vulnerabilities are found this way. The fact that you don't know that tells me you know abosolutely nothing about this subject.

What kind of low standards are those?
By your logic, if a plane is designed with a flaw that causes it to crash and kill hundreds of people, the engineer is not at fault, because it's such a "complicated" system, and he's only human and he couldn't have possibly been discovered that flaw.
I never said security firms should be held to low standards. In fact, I never said anything about security firms in general in a single one of my posts. I simply said it is impossible to have an unhackable website. You're babbling on about something I never even addressed.

So now you're saying there aren't harmless ways to expose a security flaw? Are you high?

I know better than to poke a hornets nest with a stick once I have already been stung....REPEATEDLY.

This is actually one of the reasons I 'left'...My information was stolen with other employees' info, unfortunately...

Eh, I'm not allergic to bees...That's why god gave us the hose and cans of Bygone.

In any event, they still tried and I don't necessarily find their tactics to be poking. They got stung, decided it was okay to still wear shorts and went back outside...That's FAR from taunting the attacker...They just simply failed to adequately protect themselves.

HUGE difference.

The side effects to these hacker's work is a call for better network security, which in turn may actually produce more jobs, as more hours are dedicated to focusing on Network security, these corporations will be forced to pay IT or pay for their lulz...
