But did we? I don't care if they want to screw with Sony, but I have credit card information on there. That's not cool.

But what about the people whose credit card info was possibly stolen, and whose personal information was definitely stolen? It sounds like you're looking at the hackers a bit too rosily.

To say the truth this is actually quite scary.

I'm a programer myself so I can at least somewhat appreciate what they accomplished, but no what they did (in terms of personal data) was of course 100% wrong and no one deserves that, sorry shouldnt have been so blunt.

Pot, kettle, no?

Also I can't verify its authenticity 100% so I guess take it with a grain of Salt but the stuff they're talking about and the way they're talking about it seems legit. I just Thought this might be a big thing and wanted it to be on giantbomb first

This IS Sony's fault but I mean how can we not be even the smallest amount of angry towards the hackers?

Seems pretty suspicious. Credit Card info being unencrypted text file? Would any major company be THAT dim?

#13 Posted by robbob88 (326 posts) -

Ha. That was pretty cool. But not really at the same time. What they did was completely wrong.

Don't believe they said it was in an unencrypted text file, just that the data was transmitted as plaintext, and not encrypted in any way.

I'm inclined to agree but at the same time, I only entrusted my personal information with one of those parties so technically only one of those parties were responsible for keeping it secure.

Its just ridiculous. This whole thing started because when getting a game off PSN theres a field in the method (with a few changes) that allowed you to get the game for free (promotion options I guess) which is absolutely retarded. The fact that they dont encrypt the info while they send it (not just CC but all personal info) is also bad. Theeir dev server was running an old version of apache with "known  vulnerabilities", this whole thing is just sony being lazy.

Then, I guess, in that sense, it's our fault too for trusting Sony with that information.  All I can say is, Never again.

Any who believes Sony knowing left their network open to this is kind of attack is just dumb, and whether this article is true or fake is meaningless because nothing they say now can be trusted, they will make their cause look good and Sony look bad by stating Sony's network security was poor. Now i know nothing about hacking or computer programing but from what i understand if someone is truly good at hacking then they have the talent to get into highly secure networks, so we have no idea how good or bad Sony's security is/was, if this person was determined to get into Sony's network it was just a matter of time until they did.  And what if this whole thing was caused by people running the hacked firmware for their PS3's maybe dick head or someone else was able to use to it to tunnel through Sony's security unlikely maybe, probable defiantly. I know a lot of people are being affected by this (myself included) and it sucks hard knowing that someone got to our data and has caused us to not have access to services we may or may not be paying for, but railing and condemning Sony that its all their fault is unfair, the people who went after Sony and broke the law are at fault.

And fyi i spend 99% of gaming time on my 360 so i am no fanboy protecting Sony.
