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.

From what I was able to read in the comments on /. the version Sony was running had/has no known external vulnerabilities so it's likely the website was not the point of intrusion. Now they probably had other services running that where exposed do to the lack of a firewall which were exploited but then again this is all based on comment on /. so grain of salt and all that
