Sony was NOT hacked. Some one just decided to exploit noobs who use the same username and password for everything. It required no technical knowledge and no remarkable creativity or intelligence.

Just as it takes no technical knowledge or remarkable creativity or intelligence to create a unique username and password for other websites and services.

P.S. I'm pretty nooby about this myself, but at least I try not to use my "real" password for anything that stores my credit card info. Crossed fingers that nobody hacks a DB that does have my credit card info/real password.

I wonder why do they still run this company .. I mean 1 guy can hack a database that a team of atleast 20 programmers work on making it secure .. they should probably hire this guy to work for Sony's security xD

Need help w/ Realm of the Titans,Battle Field Heroes,DDTank or Wolfteam? Just ask me :)

When Sony was first hacked, I wondered if they had left all of their account data in paper, out in the open, behind the building and someone just happened to walk on by and pick it up after jumping over the simple security rope. And now, after the warning that people needed to change their usernames/passwords, apparently those who were too lazy to change those suffered.

This isn't the first time a major corporation had a breach like this. Remember when the gamer point code algorithm for the Xbox 360 had been figured out and the small group had managed to redeem all of those generated codes for stolen points? If I remember right, the article was posted somewhere on Kotaku and the point value was stated to be around $10M USD.

Events like these remind me of such things and always reignites my fears of being compromised again. I also wonder who has the list of names/passwords and just how large that list is. Hopefully I'm not on it, even though I don't have an account with Sony.
