Privacy, Security, Encryption "The hacker group LulzSec on Thursday posted information it took from Sony Entertainment and Sony BMG on its site, called the LulzBoat. The information includes about a million usernames and passwords of customers in the U.S., Netherlands and Belgium and is available for download and posted on the group's site. A release posted on LulzSec's page said the group has more, but can't copy all of the information it stole. The group also said none of the information it took from Sony was encrypted."

lol, did anyone think differently?

except, pr move was not the worst, pissing off hackers was. one really has to be stupid to go on thin ice more than once, sony went 4 times in a row at least.

most smart companies simply bend over and take one for the team when hacked. sony >> could write a book about suicide moves when hacked;)
