sound pretty weak. The big firms know that to have proper markets in creative intellectual property once again, then they'll need ordinary bods onside in fights against the big filesharers.
Sony PlayStation website servers were used to distribute a 27.78GB archive potentially containing sensitive data swiped from Sony Pictures computers, it's claimed. Until early on Tuesday afternoon, San Francisco time, more than 60 systems seeding the archive on the BitTorrent network appeared to be virtual servers in the …
I like Sony as a manufacturer, mostly. I am not a big consumer of electronics, but I am very very picky. Of the products I have owned or been exposed to via friends or family that I think are made with thought and quality, all are Sony. It really feels like their engineers never brute force themselves around a problem, and while powerful inside their design try hard to tone it down.
Anyway, when it comes to security Sony feels like a troll. Nearly literally, the troll from some fantasy world hired to keep folks out or in.

Also its literacy on the law is quite low on the count that its literacy is quite low and that it does not really see the benefit in obeying any.
On this count I try my hardest to find any product that isn't Sony when I need something new.
It's hardly guesswork.
Sony got hacked big time, the hackers stole the keys to the company cloud servers too, and hosted the stolen files there. Once they realised, they got them all taken down at the same time.
The only "guesswork" is if it was done intentionally by Sony or not. And I'm going with "Not".
The GOP are showing that they've also totally compromised the PlayStation Network. Again.

The only silver lining off that whole kerfuffle was that it gave Mark Russinovitch some (much deserved) publicity and made me aware of the awesome SysInternals Suite.
Wait a sec, I thought that it was Sony Pictures that got hacked? Surely the Playstation servers are controlled by Sony Computer Entertainment, which is supposed to be a separate entity?
Have Sony been penetrated twice? (And I'm sure el Reg can make a good headline out of that one ;)
