      Has psn even been online for 5 years??? :confused:

      If not that would mean the day they turned on the lights, they where running exploitable software.

      PSN will be five years old - November 11th (Public). It's entirely possible they went live with their test configuration and did not update anything beforehand?

      I believe they where internal testing the PSN before the release of ps3, Or it was launched for PSP on that time. correct me if i'm wrong.

      You idiots. It doesn't say Sony had the exploit for 5 years. It says the old software of OpenSSH had the known security issue for 5 years.

      dont forget the PS2 had online gaming or something of sorts... not on the same scale as PS3 is now... but maybe Sony just bodged the PS2 version to work with the PS3...

      Naw the games i recall used game networks. Not a central sony network unless maybe it was a sony game. Like EA games used EA servers.

      Im sorry sir. I was merely wondering why sony never updated the software? The network publicly hasn't been online for 5 years yet the software had been exploited over 5 years.
      Common sense would be if you wanna buy a copy of windows you wouldn't goto the store looking for windows 95. Even if you buy win 7 first thing you do after install is update everything to its current version.

      Just seems odd if this is true and sony never updated.

      While i never expect sony to lay out excatly how they got hacked. Id be interested in knowing the basics. 1 day this is gonna make a hell of a movie. Ive been saying that since geohot was rapping about sony. If sony was smart they would hire him and make it, so they could make some money off what has happened. Swordfish is 1 of my all time favorite movies (probably because h berry took her top off though) and it was about hacking sorta.

      .... really? when they knew about it, or since when they've been running it isn't the issue. The security flaw in the software has been known for 5 YEARS, so whether they've been running it for the 5 years, or just started running it yesterday is of no importance... and you have the testicular fortitude to call other people idiots?


      I heard that they just took a spare file server that Kuturagi had laying around his house and used that... after they deleted all the porn of course.
      I heard they just

      Nah, Nintendo stole it for their servers so Sony had to start over. Unfortunately it designed and managed by the same people behind the master key which is why it failed so badly.

      Today I happened to watch an old Dilbert cartoon where the pointy haired boss said the management decided not to upgrade their computers because of short term gains and by the time a disaster occurred they would have left.

      I couldn't help but think of Sony for some reason.

      There's no spam... everything is A-OK with the forums. We are just testing out new ways to stop spammers, so we allow them in a controlled fashion to post spam.



      THAT! is a sony move right there.
