Playstation Network hacked. What a shame...
« on: May 02, 2011, 02:12:30 PM »
So the Playstation Network got hacked. What a shame. Lucky i didn't have any credit card details on there :)

My only regret is that it happened to Sony and not Apple itunes. That would have been really something. But being realistic Sony have only themselves to blame, maybe they should look after their data better by incrypting it. Sure the network would still have been hacked but at least the data would have been safe. I'm not convinced the hackers were after credit card details anyway, they might be just resentful users who were shut out of the 'other os' :rolleyes:

Just wondering did anyone on Amiga.org get hacked?

I didn't; the most recent console I own is a Wii (technically my wife's).

But this "zomg sony got hacked so it's all good" mentality is bullshit.  "sony" didn't get their data compromised, a bunch of people who couldn't give a shit about your nerdrage zomg I can't run linux here therefore sony=hitler mindset are the ones who suffered.  Saying "yay sony got hacked" is tantamount to saying "yay those people got their houses broken in to, well I didn't like the mayor of that town so it serves them right".

But what do I know?  That may well be how you view the world.

P.S. : I could find thrown away computers to run Linux on if I wanted.  So could every other screeching fanboy, but I guess they'd just have to find another cross to climb up on if they did that.
Back away from the EU-SSR!

Yeah, I did.

I don't even like Sony, the only reason I use the PS3 (It's my housemates one) is to play Super Stardust.

The most hilarious thing about that video is the "but in Australia, we don't give the criminals a hand shake and say 'yeah, well done son'" :laughing:

As for the rest - he's talking out of his shitter, clueless bastard.

Yet another example that does nothing to dispel the stereotype of Australians.

That geezers hilarious (no idea what he was rattling his gums about) but hilarious none the less... :lol:

Just helps to prove what I have always believed, people in the rest of the world (ie: outside Scotland) are all a bunch of raving loonies... :)

Great video! Seems like a good rational bloke :)

But to blame hackers is wrong. In negligence you are supposed to adopt the strategy of prevention from idiots. Hackers are idiots so you can't blame them for what they have done. If we blamed all the idiots for all the worlds problems we would get nowhere.

But overall my feeling is as much as i love Sony and the ps3 i still like to see the big boys get stepped on once in a while. I only wish it happened to Apple instead.

Anyone hacking my PSN account will fall asleep from boredom.

The video gave me a few laughs. Got to agree with his point about people running out to get more windows though they've been burned over and over. Spent half a career helping recover and then reinstall more of the same. Oh well.... it pays pretty well.
