    As Sega are a reputable company they will not even give this offer the time of day.

    One good deed doesn't change the fact that they are still assholes.

    They're just mad that someone else beat them to hacking Sega first. It's okay when they steal personal information for the lulz, but heaven forbid anyone else has some lulz.

    But they would definitely be breaking a law. Where as Graf might have but he can be damned? Hypocrite.

    "To stress, none of the passwords obtained were stored in plain text"

    Now I understand this is a press release not necessarily aimed at security types but should I have had the chance I might have mentioned if the passwords was hashed and salted properly. Certainly not enough information to so much as suggest wrongdoing but enough to have caught my eye.

    ...So in other words, you're one of those bandwagon jumpers who bash games they've never played? Cute.

    Aaaaand we're straying from the topic.

    You can take your personal snipes at one another elsewhere.

    I haven't played one game by them that had zero advertising so I'm jumping on the bandwagon? OK whatever.

    But apart from that I still don't get the arbitrary decisions on who not to attack.

    Well they hacked them and then said they wouldn't release any info that they hacked because they're "too big of fans of the SNES". They apparently wanted to point out the vulnerabilities to them so they could fix it.

    Not defending LulzSec, but I think that was the case.

    I find it ironic that they "like the Dreamcast" which also had lulz security. Shit security man.
