Sony’s swiss cheese security

John Moe Jun 7, 2011

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.
