so take this with a grain of salt, but cnet is reporting that hackers have warned sony they plan on rehacking and this time releasing any information they can attain.


i have no idea what the reason for this would be, as its no longer proving a point in the slightest but going way over the line.

lets see if it happens i guess

All they want is for the PS3 to be returned to it's hackable potential.

And that one dude absolved of all charges.

Sometimes I get really pissed at hackers. It makes me feel a little better when I remember that they are lonely.

Why don't they just stick with computers if they're that damn annoyed?

With proper hacking, the PS3 becomes better than 99% of computers out there.

With proper hardware, a computer is superior to the PS3. A high end computer can be more powerful.

But the PS3 is a hell of a lot cheaper than a high end computer.

A PS3 is cheaper. Not to mention, you get you're Blu-Ray player, gaming console and all the perks of a computer in one tidy box.

I don't think it was Anon. They never go for personal info. It's uncharacteristic of them.

Boohoo.

Suck it up, cupcake.

Besides, if it's a desktop, I can change out hardware parts when I want. I defy anyone to do that with a PS3 and not risk breaking it.

Some people just want to watch the world burn....

Does there really need to be a reason involved?

I know people who have. All it takes is reading up on your machine.

Such lovely logic: Screw the innocent over. Sure Sony will get hurt, but there are better ways to skin a cat than this. Why burn down the house for an insect?

Oh well, maybe it'll get these zombified teens into some sunlight for once.

Nah. No one comes here. They'll never find it.

I feel no sympathy for Sony. They're the same pricks who secretly used rootkit copy protection software on their CDs in 2005 and had multiple lawsuits filed against them by more than a couple US states. It is definitely unfortunate that the customer is caught in the crossfire. I wish this happened to Microsoft, though. They're worse than Sony when it comes to greed.

...So you're completely fine with the personal information of 77,000,000 people being leaked, and are content to just chalk it up as "unfortunate", all because Sony was a dick?

The rootkit thing in '05 is part of why I've never bought a Sony computer, but come on man. That's plain apathetic.

Sony must have done a number on the PS3 if it became easier to hack into Sony's database than the PS3 itself.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.
#34
Wait.

So they're stealing and releasing information because they couldn't play COD for a few hours?

****ing wanker cunts.


EDIT: I must be grossly misunderstanding this whole thing, because that makes no sense.

No. I don't like the fact that innocent consumers are having their security breached and their sensitive information stolen. But until the hackers find a better way of striking back against Sony, this is probably the only way they can hurt Sony.

On the plus side, it exposes Sony for being the lying dicks they are. I remember reading on Gamespot that Sony was aware of the possibility of the PSN attack as early as January but was complacent about it. They also apparently didn't warn their users of the fact that their CC database had been compromised until many days after it had happened. So, in a way, they let the thieves into their home by not locking their door even after knowing that they most probably might get robbed.

Yeah, I don't buy anything with a Sony brand name on it either.

Well, I do hate Sony.

The only thing that'll come out of this is that the next time you want to buy something using your credit card you'll have to pass a ton of security checks .
