    The stuff about Sony is in the last paragraph.

    Tough talk or complete bullshit? You decide.

    I don't know if it's true talk or bullshit, I just find it ridiculous to continue against sony. Sony is HACKABLE, case closed. In my young time, hacking was about challenges, now I see it's more like a trend ;-)

    If they have an active Twitter account; don't they think it will be easier to catch them? It isn't like proxies are perfect.

    Don't the hackers know that what they're doing not only effects Sony but also all the other consumers!?

    I won't support them this time.

    ya know what? these fucking hackers need sum serious ass-beatings!
    i think if the cops get them, everyone with a psn account should get to cut them with a rusty knife.
    (kinda extreme, i know...but i really didn't like losing my psn access for so long...)

    The first few hacks revealed serious vulnerabilities ultimately benefitting customers. Now they're just being assholes though. Don't "end" Sony or millions of consumers are gonna be pissed off

    Their twitter feed is one of the most active and interesting things you can read. Definitely check it out.

    I don't even know why they're trying to take down Sony. Sure they've pissed a few people off in the past, but this is really going too far. I really hope whoever's behind these attacks will be caught pretty soon, as attempting to take down Sony is really only going to hurt the consumers and possibly the economy even more in the end.

    FFS get a life you losers. -_-

    Go hack your mothers or some family shit member we don't even give a damn about. I know I hate Sony at times, but not to this extent of continuously seeing them get hacked. Why not for once good (If there are any) hackers join forces with Sony and find the people behind this?

    I believe these attacks have opened Sony's eyes. Hopefully wide enough to see that they need to dump invest millions for new security systems and more periodic security updates for their servers. *John Madden moment...*If they wanna get back in the game then they gotta play hard ball with these hackers.

    If they don't then I guess they'll keep getting fucked in the A-hole like Stu did in Bangkok. ( [​IMG] hangover2)

    absolutely silly. just because u can do something doesnt mean u should do it. Dont harm someone without a justifiable reason (eg. he harmed u more). If u ask me, i would have understood if Geohot "exposed" the security holes (not hacking thru them) but if geohot himself would have done this, that would also be unfair

    Every time I see one of these, I literally laugh out loud. Sony stirred the hornets nest with their giant e-penis. Now, it's just a giant target. I don't feel sorry for the company, but for the customers.

    Good, I hope Sony burns. I love the hell out of my PSP, but I'm sick of idly sitting by while they exploit laws to benefit themselves at the expense of everybody else's liberties. I'm sick of the way they treat their own customers.

    If the only thing they care about is their bottom line, then it's about time they got the message loud and clear. I hope they lose _billions_ fending off mere handfuls of disgruntled people.

    They can't end shit. Much less bragging about it.
