oh so... is that the reason i can't log in to the Dirt 3 forum, even though i did request a new password by email?

but seriously this stuff happens all the time, only because of Sony the News pages are all over it now.

No it's because it was 100 million records of pretty valuable data.

Well they are dealing with it in relation to consumers in a more competant way than Sony, around a week, at this point with Sony they were getting "specialists" (likley lawyers) in and getting and informing law enforcement bodies. Had this been sony we would have another month or so to go before consumers are properly informed.

Hacking will happen with poor security especially, that part is bad enough, but the major issue and the one so hotly debated, in a way you can never see, is the reasons leading to the hack and how it is dealt with after that make it a hot topic. Sony botched it fromt he get go and so was a major deal, if SquareEnix and codemasters make equally big screw ups (and lets face it given they have the mother of all screwed up ways to deal with sort of thing as a recent guide, they should be able to work out what not to do), then they will be getting the same ridicule and negative press Sony have got.

Yes these things happen all the time but they go unoticed by most as they are dealt with well and damage kept to a minimum, so little negative press reports. Sony onthe other hand royaly screwed up the whole affair, hence such a big deal made of it, then continue to get hacked even after best part of 2 months to get network proffesionals instead of lawyers to lock down thier netowrks.
