Spafford states that security experts monitoring open internet forums had found out that Sony was running outdated versions of the Apache web server, with no patches applied. To make matters worse, Sony did not have a firewall installed. Topping it all off, these security experts reported these flaws months before the current breaches on security forums monitored by Sony employees. Wow.


"If Dr Spafford's assessment is accurate, it's inexcusable that Sony not only ran obsolete software on servers containing confidential data, but also that the company continued to do so after this information was publicly disclosed," said Jeff Fox, Consumer Reports Technology Editor.


Let's be clear here: the folks who stole the data are criminals and need to be apprehended. However, if Spafford's story is true, and you'd think that you wouldn't lie during a congressional hearing, you can easily argue that Sony are criminals as well.....This is going to cost them dearly in law suits and damages - and rightfully so.


For any PS3 owners out there, I'd suggest trading everything in and get a 360 instead. Also change your credit/debit card just in case, since the hackers have, if my sources are correct, 77 million accounts of peoples information from the first hack, and over 25 million from the second hack.

Honestly, I think I'll just wait. The PS3 is just awesome in every way possible, and I don't want to pay 50 bucks a year to play online with the 360. Or risk the constant failures.

Yeah, I got an email saying my account has been hacked and that hopefully, I haven't given out any credit card or social security number info.

Sucks balls.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

It is a great system, but they both have their failures. My ps3 ylod a couple days after the first hack and psn shutdown. Just bought Socom 4 too. But I don't blame the people who trade in theirs when they can't trust a lazy company with their personal information.

I was almost going to buy some RDR DLC from the online store. Glad I didn't do that yet. Now they get only my e-mail and password, not my bank account details.

If I had money floating around I would probably get another 360 but I am not really a fan after my first experience with the 360. Had to send mine in eight times. Had about 6 RRoD, an E74 error and one time they sent me back one that still wasn't working.

I think I deal with a PSN failure over a system failure.

Friend of mine had someone use his CC info and tap into his money a little bit. He didn't lose much, though. Just had to freeze his account real quick and get a different card.

Sorry for double but it is finally up for pretty much the entire east coast and California.

I think they might of fixed that problem awhile back. I only got RRoD once, sent it in, got it back and got 3 free months of live. Haven't had a problem since.

Well, at least a year ago 360's still had a higher than 50% fail rate, shockingly bad for expensive technology. I don't know what they've done since then, though.

Doesn't matter. Won't ever convince me to get a 360. I think I had the record for the RRoD, 4 damn times!!!! PS3, other than this, has been completely flawless and I love the blu-ray player. Not much for online gaming except for Madden.
