    FOR 12 MONTHS.


    Then it's going to cost you.

    It's all about fucking money with Sony.

    Too bad they don't offer protection against spam and phishing.

    I'm sure this cost them a bundle. Sinking ship is sinking.

    Just delete the Phishing and spam emails, never open unknown stuff in your inbox.

    If you need protection against "phishing", you shouldn't be online without supervision anyway.

    Pretty much this.

    It's pretty much closing the barn doors after the horses have bolted off.
