    10,000 times? Either the hacker used sneaky methods, or Sony's ISP is awful about limiting between login attempts. I mean, you can greatly slowdown attempts by forcing periods of time between failed logins, Sony. Common sense in security, really.

    Really? I like to read proof that geohot is a dick eater and is at fault.

    @topic Quite unfortunate...

    @Coolness Maybe not maybe so but he isn't the one that did it.
    And we really don't know how hackers even did it. They may not need his method at all.

    Wtf are you going on about? You don't know anything about what has happened. The keys being leaked is nearly independent on the break in of the servers, in a matter of fact, the architectures are so different. What are you like 4?

    Odds are that Sony has little to no real interaction with the company, especially on a security level, they merely own the ISP. I wouldn't be comparing this to PSN at all.

    It is not independent from the security breach. The hackers used custom firmware to hack into PSN. Geohot's keys allowed CFW's to be made, so he has some involvement in this.

    Link?

    Even then it not his fault. He as he did not mess with PSN. Even without the cfw it was going to happen.
