Sony's swiss cheese security

The new hackers on the block, Lulz Security, said Monday they hacked Sony again. It reminds me of my junior high basketball game - the score was, sadly, 94 to 2 (I was on the losing team). Really? Do you have to keep scoring when the other team is losing that badly? (Note: this item is written by Larissa, not John. John never lost that badly. He shrewdly avoided such situations by never playing on school sports teams. And now he works on a tech show on public radio. Figures.)

From Reuters:

"The group, which has claimed credit for a prior attack on Sony's systems, posted what appeared to be Sony BMG network maps from a New York city office and what they said was 54 megabytes of Sony developer source code."

Sony says they're looking into it.
