Privacy, Security, Encryption Sony just restarted its Playstation Network, after the massive security fail dismissed as a 'hiccup' by Sony CEO Howard Stringer. Well, the PSN has barely been up two days, and a massive security oversight has already been discovered. Yes, Sony just got Sony'd. Again. Unbelievable.

and it took 2 days for somebody to realize this was a bad thing?

No competent person would think it was a good idea in the first place.

why is Sony portrayed as idiots

Because they're the ones who implemented it and thought it was a good idea.

if nobody else caught on to it either until today?

Maybe no-one is using PSN anymore.
