      best bet for Sony would be to remove the need to store any customer information... delete it all, and just use PSN cards and be done with personal data held...

      Which is what I do. I try to use my credit card as little as possible.
      We shouldn't have to resort to something like this, but it's the risk you run when storing personal data in any digital system.

      The hackers can attack Sony all they want. I haven't bought a sony product in years and they keep giving me reason to never buy another. Keep at it

      well the thing is that sony still going to pay a hefty fine for holding the data for more than 90 days, there is still some user data from 2007 hackers also stolen.:(

      What matters is that it's something you PAID for (online gaming). Importance is a matter os perspective, everyone have their own values. If gaming is important for him, he's in his right.

      I hope this planned attack is true...


      I was talking to my friend this Wednesday day and he was unaware that the PSN was down and thought something was wrong with his ps3 because all he got was the error without an explanation. He was about buy a brand new ps3 to replace it until I explained to him that nothing was wrong with his ps3 and that psn was down.

      So another "attack" is going to somehow make him aware?

      Spend less time being an idiot and more thinking logically, please.

      cloporte - What the hell are you on about :confused: seriously I know what you are saying regarding Viruses, malware etc, but this is not the topic. I pay for something that I cannot now access because some hacker keeps hacking it so Sony will possibly keep taking it down, so this is hurting me the end PSN user. Not some spotty teenager who gets Viruses, malware on their PC cos they can’t stop browsing porn. No a paying PSN user… Jesus and if that’s you want to call me, well that’s up to you!! :p

      And don’t get me wrong this is not an excuse for Sony’s lack of security or lack of information after the event.

      Im not sure sony didnt put all their ducks in 1 basket going after anon. Since this has happened the hacker who did it tried to sell the CC info, and is now planning to post it all.

      Sony should have dug deeper into suspects. Anon is doing press releases denying everything, sony is blaming anon for everything. Some unknown person is really freaking pissed at sony for who knows what reason.

      This doesn't seem to be about just hacking to show you can, but more to go after Sony. In all these attacks no other company at all is claiming and simulair type of events even in the slightest.
      That would suggest this all is about sony. It would be nice if a agenda was given for why the third attack was planned though.

      Enough is enough, hurt Sony all you want but don't harm consumers who have done nothing wrong.

      But then there's the issue of card supply. Somehow the UK has been out of stock of £20 and £50 value cards which have been replaced with an endless supply of £25 and £35 cards. You see what they did there?

      For Sony's sake, let's hope they used a 512 bit crypto scheme for their CC info. Otherwise this could get a lot worse.

      This will have one major positive result, with several weeks to bolstr their security and a couple of days warning, we should find out if Sony has gotten their act together this time.

      If they get hacked again, don't blame the hackers and don't make excuses, blame Sony for still not making the effort to provide a secure network for customers to be able to place any trust in.

      I'm hoping I'm wrong but I'm suspecting that all sony will do is turn stuff off instead of actually proving their network is secure, I hope they can genuinly say they prevented the hackers from causing disruption with improved security, and that the hackers admit they couldn't do anything due to this, but to be honest I have next no faith in Sony at the mo, do ecpect them to either be hacked or just turn off all vulnerable services

      Fingers crossed they prove me wron

      Sony should've stopped suing people.
