The hacker behind this had likely nothing to do with him, and it's not the hackers fault in any case if a company doesn't properly secure its internet services, whoever it was only did their work for them for free, revealing bugs that should have been fixed earlier. Downside is it's done publicly and they probably don't care a bit after Sony pissed everyone with their lawsuits. I think geohot is more for fame than actual hacking but you have to admit he even said Sony they should hire him. He could have helped in making PSN more secure but instead they sued him badly. Some companies actually do hire people who have hacked them, so it wasn't far fetched.

All proper companies do code audits and security checks before going out with big services. I haven't read of this large credit card leak in long time if ever.. and there are web stores out there that are even bigger, and Paypal who also stores CC details. Do you see them hacked?
Your real name, address, credit card numbers and such are stored on Sony's servers when you register to PSN and possibly give credit card details for making purchases. It's not stored on your own PS3. Sony's servers got hacked and all information downloaded by hackers. It's the same thing like when you use paypal or web stores - your computer doesn't intentionally store the information, it is stored on the server for making the purchase and for later use.

come on Sony , accept that you are no more capable of any thing.
Expect a new firmware after they get the new psn up, I mean they changing everything so i can guarantee we will see a new firmware besides 3.60 the day psn gets back up,
Karma is a *****, thats what you get for trying to hammer the underground community.
Exactly! How can such a big company not use some simple best practices like encrypting sensitive information. They really thought they were invincible now they're the worst secured console on the market.
