Enjoying your PlayStation Store access? After weeks of being down the PSN is finally (almost) entirely up again. But wait, what’s this? As per lulzsecrity.com, Sony Pictures has indeed been hacked. While not quite as big a publicity deal as pulling down the whole PSN, over 1,000,000 accounts have had information compromised. Passwords, email addresses, physical addresses, dates of birth and any opt-in information has been compromised. This is similar to the PSN attack, but quite a lot more individuals, and even more pathetic was how they were obtained. The method used was a simple SQL injection and (if you can even imagine doing this) what’s worse is how all the information was stored. They weren’t even encrypted! They were in plain text!!! This is beyond unacceptable for home or office files, let alone a major corporation. I think I speak for everyone when I saw that Sony as a whole needs to get its head out of its ass and use some kind of basic security. This is beyond atrocious and unreasonable and Sony must make this stop. None of this should have ever happened and it’s going to be a long time before people can ever really trust Sony again. *slow clap*
You stay classy, World Wide Web.
