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.

Hiccup Mmm

I wonder what Sony's definition of a hiccup is? 77 Million user accounts compromised, including credit card details. PSN off line cutting service to millions of customers, and when the service is finally resumed its fscked again in 2 days.

If the worst Internet security disaster ever is a hiccup what would Sony consider bad? A virus that turns all Playstation users into flesh eating zombies?

Or maybe its just someone putting Linux on their Playstation?

Or maybe Exorcist-style projectile pea-soup vomiting.

Oh no, that is beyond bad. That's an offense of titanic dimensions that should render the death penalty or worse.
