[ThomasColeCreative] Sony Fined for 2011 PSN Hack

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Back in 2011, the PlayStation Network was hacked and as such a massive amount of personal data was taken, most crucially credit and debit card numbers. As such, Sony have now been fined for this in regards to the Data Protection Act, failing to keep the personal and private information stored on the network secure.
Quote:
Sony has been fined £250,000 for this data breach, which in reality is a paltry sum for such a large company. In America, a judge has already thrown out a lawsuit on the PSN hack back in October 2012, claiming that there is no such thing as perfect security.

Right... who gets the money, surely they should be fined and forced to spend money upgrading the PSN infrastructure?

They can keep my $0.38 award. I voted with my wallet. Sony will never see another penny from me from any of their divisions if I can possibly help it. No games, no hardware, and unless there is no other possible way, no music or movies.

They should be sending it to a Charity or some kinda offering to someone that needs that money. I know that its going to the government.

Send that money $250k+ to http://www.childsplaycharity.org/
Child's Play Charity. Started bye gamers for children that play video games. Ohh Wait Children who play PS3

Yeah, don't go after the people who hacked it and let loose all of that information on the internet. That will solve the problem. rolleyes.gif

Personally, I think that hackers and virus writers should get the death penalty if they effect more than 1,000 people. MAYBE then it will be a deterrent. As it stands now, hackers and virus authors are largely given a free pass in the legal system ... and often championed on boards like OCN as some sort of mini-hero.

If I can help it. Movies and Music are my only exception at this point. But it has to be a totally awesome movie or album for me to buy it from Sony. If it's "so-so" from Sony, I'll pass. If it's "so-so" from another studio, I'll buy it.

So you would have a hacker sentenced to death, while rapists get a couple of years?

Yep, I had to get a new debit card due to this. They tried to charge my account like $240 from the Netherlands. Crappy thing was, my PS3 had been broke for over 6mo when my card info got taken.

So I guess that means your debit card wasn't expired like some claim?
