Sony keeps 99.9% of it's customers safe from hackers
Philip Reitinger, Sony's Chief Information Security Officer, not only defended our accounts from the dangers of the Internet, but he regaled us with stories of his epic battle.
PSN, SOE, and SEN detected "a large amount of data obtained from one or more compromised lists from other companies, sites or other sources." The hackers tried to pair up the information they had, with the accounts that existed on all these Sony services. About .1% found a match, which translates to about 93,000 accounts globally. Not bad, when you consider what happened the last time Sony was hacked.
Nice showing Sony. Not only did they stop the hackers, but the let us know about it pretty quickly.
Good job Sony. Acceptable level of hacking and quick response. Way better than last time.
Phishers are going to phish no matter what. And idiots who get phished can only blame them selves for falling for stupid e-mails.
Good job Sony, you're really staying on top of it. However, I hope you realize that by saying that you're going to send emails to people with compromised accounts that you've opened the floodgates for phishing emails.
Long story short: by saying you're sending it out, you could very well ensure that more people's accounts are compromised.
things like this could happen to anybody, i guess u gotta give sony some props for responding quickly which is a good indicator that they learned something from the previous fuck up, but it doesnt instill confidence in consumers when you're a major target for hackers
Funny how these comments are positive about Sony because the title of the article is positive as well. Other news sites have the article written in a more pessimistic way and the comments follow suit.
Nice to know how much they mean business. :D
I was thinking that exactly when reading this. Revulsive...you smart, smart boy you.
FPS Russia <3 loloololol
Philip Reitinger - "hey hacker!" Hacker - What? Philip Reitinger - "CYBER SLAP!" Hacker falls down. FPS Russia walks behind Philip Reitinger and says to the hacker - "Have nice day" lol. way to go sony! BOOYA!
That what most people are saying.
Nice to see they are on top of things.
The .1% are probably people that haven't logged into PSN in a long time, long enough that they didn't reset their password after the last hack.
Show them who's boss Sony.
