Games There's fail, there's epic fail, and then there's Sony. You may've thought it wasn't possible, but Sony has just outdone itself on the fail scale, forcing us to add yet another notch. During the congressional testimony this morning, Dr Gene Spafford of Purdue University revealed just how badly Sony managed its Playstation Network servers. It's... Bad.

Haven't done much work with corporate machines I take it. Sane admins don't go off installing updates without understanding what they'll do to the running systems. Admins who wish to remain employed also don't run around rebooting mission critical systems whenever updates pop up.

That doesn't excuse piss poor security practices, but there's a hell of a lot more to the process than aptitude update && aptitude full-upgrade
