Sony Hacked hard...again

Wow..this is just pathetic...1,000,000 accounts hacked.
(from Gizmodo)

Sony getting its ass handed to it by hackers is becoming about as newsworthy as a netbook release, but this one is particularly brutal: Lulz Security just released a file containing over a million user logins. Home addresses included.

The Lulz crew says their gigantic dump includes:

Quote:
Personal information, including passwords, email addresses, home addresses, dates of birth, and all Sony opt-in data associated with their accounts. Among other things, we also compromised all admin details of Sony Pictures (including passwords) along with 75,000 "music codes" and 3.5 million "music coupons".
Not stuff you want floating around on MediaFire (and not something we're going to link to, out of respect for the privacy of that million plus).

So, why'd they do it this time? FOR THE LULZ? No. To teach a lesson, they say:

Quote:
Our goal here is not to come across as master hackers, hence what we're about to reveal: SonyPictures.com was owned by a very simple SQL injection, one of the most primitive and common vulnerabilities, as we should all know by now. From a single injection, we accessed EVERYTHING. Why do you put such faith in a company that allows itself to become open to these simple attacks?
As much as this is a shit move on their part, they have a good point. All of this extremely sensitive user data was stored in plain text, with zero encryption whatsoever. Sony is clearly beyond the palest pale of ineptitude when it comes to keeping their house in order. Their server rooms have had a screen door on them for the past month. Get it the hell together.

one reason i don't like to be in charge of network security. having a huge responsibility of knowing for sure stuff can't be hacked into.


I'm wondering if they got some newb network administrator that just got lucky all these years. Or they outsource their crap

This is why I love my wii. If I want to buy games I don't give them a cc, I buy wii points. It's secure, easy and nothing to hack.

I don't ride, I cook!

With the Sony hacking, no credit cards were taken, just email address, login names and passwords and addresses.

I can't remember for the Wii, but the big concern is that most people have one password for everything, so the PSN login and email password would be the same.

It has always been a cat and mouse game. Always will be. Sometimes the mice win. I've always found it prudent to hire the proper younger smart mice before they have a chance to turn bad to help the cat keep the rest of the mice out. That practice has paid off since 1993

Everyone Exaggerates

We're being taken for a ride... agaaaaaaain.....
