    'We've learned that we just have to keep improving our security.'

    One lesson learned a little too late.

    I couldn't tell if people were saying burglarized as some sort of Internet joke or they thought it was a real word...

    Anyway, it's probably the best Sony can come up with. They can't declare everything to be safe in case they get hacked again, but they're trying to divert attention from the fact they stored everything in plain text.

    They're caught between a rock and a hard place (granted a hard place they built themselves).

    this whole episode confirms my years of un-interest in supporting sony.

    nobody can guarantee security but the way sony have handled it so far stinks of arrogance and I dont like that one jot.

    No obvious grammatical flaws, but you left out out the crucial part of the sentence which says what the accusations were... Total mindf**k!

    Shhh, just let it go. By now all the people complaining will pick at anything, it's long been turned into a matter of blindly disliking the brand regardless of reality.

    Oooooh so it is! That makes much more sense. Could have guessed actually, American English does often tend to the longer versions of words. My younger brother was telling me recently when he toured America, the number of times he asked someone "Where's the loo?" only to be told "Erm, in the restroom".

    Identity theft is a pain in the arse but not the end of the world, it is just convincing your bank that you do not have reason to make regular purchases of items of womens underwear from Anne Summers or draw money in countries you have never visited.

    It can happen anywhere and nothing is 100% secure so why people are complaining so much as if they had been personally violated or something along those lines, it is beyond me.

    A simple patch to any part of the software can wreck havoc on that ecosystem. And oudated software is sometimes needed/used because it might be the only version that plays nice with rest of the running services. But who knows besides Sony. Until then I hope Sony's makes it a point hire the many experts that have come out the wood works to backseat drive their IT department with every news article that comes out on this whole fiasco.

    If they have anyone's personal info, then they are responsible for anything that happens to it.

    FYI sony's PSN network is down again due to a known password exploit.

    they couldn't even guarantee a day of service when they made these comments.

    Don't you love the people who defend Sony over this. Obviously they own stock in the company. There is no excuse for this, especially when Sony was so lame to not even encrypt the data. That is just plain negligence.

    Oh wow why did they choose to make hacker enemies lol :duh:.

    Glad I only like some exclusive single player games on it so the psn network doesn't mean much to me, everything was crazily overpriced on it anyway, I just like the demos you could get through it.
