    Re: Massive PS3 Network Attack AGAIN

    so from my understanding it said

    Lulz Security said it broke into servers which run SonyPictures.com.

    It said it had hacked into a database that included unencrypted passwords as well as names, addresses and dates of birth of Sony customers.


    Which is sonypictures.com and not the play station network (PSN).

    If you own a PS, you better sell it.

    From Sonypictures.com, not PSN though. Well more information will come out and if this was a successful attack on the PSN itself; we are sure to hear about it.

    PSN usernames may still be compromised if you use the sony pictures service through your PS3.

    I suppose it's possible. As I said, I'll wait to see if the PSN has had another big attack.

    If this story is accurate, it is as much about hacking as it is about slip-shod data security practices. Either Sony should invest in creating a viable data security architecture or it should cease offering services that require such personal data. In the meantime, Sony should take the honorable path and offer to pay for the measures its customers will have to take to safeguard themselves from the adverse consequences that result from the data theft.

    There is no excuse that such data was unencrypted, especially in the wake of the recent massive data theft. Such a practice is an open invitation to data theft.

    Hopefully, if the story is genuine, the hackers will be brought to justice and the hacking network shut down. Even if it is not, Sony should immediately suspend any services that utilize such data, develop a coherent and effective data protection scheme, and the relaunch the services once the customer data is safeguarded. If it takes a quarter or two to do so, then so be it.
