    I think this has gone too far. The goal must be to completely shut Sony down. It appears they are on the right track. Looks like M$ here I come.

    Lately it seems like these hackers are deliberately exploiting Sony through any means necessary, through any connection possible.

    But good lord, security 101 fail.

    Things are getting out of controll now... these hackers shouldn't go all terrorism against sony as they are.. and sony should get their act together and not make it so easy for the hackers.... but BOTH parts should stop fucking around

    Edit:

    I never knew this was a place full of hackers? I thought we (some of us) just were pirates and/or game lovers.

    I don't understand why this was necessary anyway...

    I had forgotten the password to my account, so entered the email and the DOB on the account (which the hackers would have had access to) and reset the password without any "exploitation" necessary. There was no need for any hack at all.

    EDIT: And if they had your old password anyway, they could have changed your password with that, unless you already changed it, in which case, only email and DOB are necessary, both of which they would have had. I really don't understand this news or the shock it has caused...
