Sony is still amazing us with many demonstrations about its pitiful nature:

QUOTE
Sony's reputation as a computer security pygmy has deepened again, with the latest hack seeing it apparently lose a million user accounts to hackers.

Reportedly, hackers used yet another SQL injection attack to break into the database of SonyPictures.com, making off with the account details of a million users, including names, addresses, email addresses, and passwords, though mercifully not credit card details.

No confirmation is yet forthcoming from Sony, but the perpetrators have helpfully posted all the data obtained online, something unlikely to endear them to Sony customers.

The group claiming responsibility for this hack has also taken things a step further, having been publicly taunting and threatening Sony via Twitter for some time.

Some of their latest gloating:

QUOTE

"From a single injection, we accessed EVERYTHING. Why do you put such faith in a company that allows itself to become open to these simple attacks?

What's worse is that every bit of data we took wasn't encrypted. Sony stored over 1,000,000 passwords of its customers in plain text, which means its just a matter of taking it.

This is disgraceful and insecure: they were asking for it."


Sony has now lost well over 100 million accounts to hackers certainly an abject lesson in the wisdom of trusting big corporations to safeguard user data.

I am torn between breaking out in laughter over their absurd security (or lack thereof) system, or shaking my head in disgust...





Can't we just be selfish for one more day...

I was thinking today at work, "Hey, last thread about Sony being hacked was like a week ago. Maybe it's finally stopped?"

....Sony, just don't E3 this year. Save what face you have left.

Now they're saying they are going to give out some free games to those who dare return. Wonder how that will work out.

Ok, let's get interactive. How many more hacks will befall Sony until E3 ends on the 9th? That's only 4 days, but I guarantee that as soon as their press conference starts, they'll be getting updates through earpieces at how their empire is being disassembled brick-by-brick during the 5 hours. So really, any number is a safe bet. XP

I'm going to go with my standby number of 3. That's in the middle between a conservative and a rediculous number.

Oh common now Mezoroth, be realistic. There would be people behind stage getting word of it that would be crapping their pants trying to figure out how to tell the guy on stage.

I think they won't get hacked for at least half of it. Let Sony hold onto that small (almost nonexistent) thread of good public graces they have left for just a few minutes longer, then hack their press conference.
