Of course these hackers taking information is wrong, but Sony has done a lot of wrong things that brought this upon themselves. These people didn't act just for the hell of it. Sony themselves apparently thought that punishing one hacker for jailbreaking their system software was enough to make sure no one did it again. They seriously thought that. They thought that people with lesser morals would just go, "Oh ok we learned our lesson and we will not try to hack or bring down you badly serviced network."

    All I am saying, is Sony has just as much blame as the hackers do.
    It's turning out Sony did not do as badly as every one is claiming. You know the claim that you referneced that the PSN did not have enough firewalls and was running outdated Apache? Turns out the guy, who based his comments on forum posts, did not know what the **** he was talking about. Sony's Servers Were Up to Date, News from GamePro

    According to a page request archived on March 23, 2011, Sony was running version 2.2.17 of the Apache server software, which is the latest stable version available today. This repudiates Spafford's claims, which were second-hand in the first place and may well have stemmed from nothing more than Internet rumors and IRC chatlogs anyway.

    My bet is this was an inside job and it was a criminal syndicate behind it but that's just conjecture.

    Could very well be, since they fired 200 people or so, a few weeks before this hit them.
