    Now while I know F-secure's an actual security company (they made the Blacklight rootkit scanner, for one) I've gotta' disagree with their claim of it being hacking. It looks like this was an inside job, perhaps somebody that works for Sony using their rights on the server more than they should.

    Well, if this doesn't cause any harm to the consumers (us), then it is okay I guess [​IMG]

    Alright, I'm now convinced that this is some sort of a conspiracy.
    There's absolutely no way that a big company like Sony would be this bad at security, and even if they were, this is just plain retarded.

    This Sony thing has to be a diversion used to draw our attention away from something bigger. It's the only thing that makes sense.

    That's why there was a phishing site in the first place, they tried to catch a break, get it? [​IMG]

    Generally speaking as soon as you power the server to run a service you should consider it as being eyeballed for an attack and such a state will not stop until you power it down for good.
