    I'm starting to feel sorry for those guys. According to the BBC, Sony Pictures has been hacked. Or rather, the servers that run Sonypictures.com. This time only a relatively modest 1m names, addresses and dates of births. This is going beyond the pale now. Poor Sony

    Sucks for Sony that the hackers are really targeting them specifically. No doubt there are plenty of other big companies that are similarly lax with personal data, and simply get away with it because nobody cares enough to try and hack them.

    What I really want to know is, why Sony? Is it really a show of solidarity for what happened to Geohotz?

    I imagine it happens to other companies all the time. It's just a Sony hack news story gets you more hits right now.

    You would think they would send out a memo to the whole company saying "Get your shit in order if needs be, double, triple check."

    I think this is only the tip of the iceberg for any organisation with user details, it's there for the taking. I'm sure there is stupid amounts of companies that are as bad and worse with securing data.

    Do we need an overhaul of laws for personal data. If companies are doing this half baked I doubt the law and regulations are strong enough.

    No company out there can be completely unhackable. They might make the computer systems completely secure from external intrusion, but it's people that use those systems, and people can be hacked. The best that can be done is to design everything so as to limit the damage that can be done with what an individual employee knows, and that includes the guy who designed the security infrastructure.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    I highly doubt it. Not like they haven't sued people in the past for similar things. There is a forum run by one of the original mod chip makers for the PS2 inhabited by a lot of good hackers. When said owner was sued part of the settlement included no discussion about hacking any Sony products on the forum. People were pissed off but accepted it was the realty.

    Potentially since the PSN issues Sony are a benchmark for some but I also think the media are on the lockout for problems.

    According to Engadget, Hackers got away with a million passwords... in plain text. Oh dear.

    An SQL injection is unforgivable TBH. That is just like having no security.

    Lulz is a tad too close to Lutz for my liking. Fringe division? Splinter cell?

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Oh really? Well aside from that not meaning a thing considering there might only be 1 or 2 hundred thousand active accounts out of a million, what is your source?
