Content Defense Made Sony Target of Intruders

The corporation’s head, Howard Stringer, complained that his rigorous defense of content had lead to negative results: in particular, his company had become the hackers’ target.

Howard Stringer is reported to tell at a shareholder meeting that Sony was targeted by intruders just because of its attempts to protect its intellectual property. However, the critics believe that the moan was just a part of the Stringer’s sidestep to a call from a few shareholders that he fall on his sword because of the ease that the intruders had with taking out the company.

It turned out that nobody has admitted to the hacker breach which took place this past April and led to the leak of the personal info of around 77 million PlayStation video game users. Instead, this is considered as a likely reaction against the way that the corporation was treating its customers as part of a clamp down on illegal modifications to PS3 game consoles.

Sony Corporation took the decision to block the ability of PS3 users to run Linux. After this restriction had been bypassed with a mod, Sony sued the modders into next week. The company leader told shareholders that their games had been Sony’s corporate assets, so if there were people who didn't want the company to protect them, then it means that they wanted everything to be free.

However, it turned out that Howard Stringer failed to carry all the shareholders with him with his rhetoric. One of the participants of the meeting simply asked Stringer to step down in order to allow the corporation to make a fresh start after what the observers call the world's largest online security breach ever. Unsurprisingly, the comments of the shareholder were greeted with applause.

Besides, the company also has to face questions like why plenty of its servers weren’t protected by anything passing for security. Remarkably enough, one of the court cases filed in the United States revealed that the company fired employees in a unit responsible for network security a fortnight before the biggest hacking incident ever.

Finally, the public, including 77 million of suffered PlayStation network users, already knows that Sony had top quality security on its own corporate data, but at the same time failed to do the same for its customers' information – this was claimed by one of the class action lawsuits.

fusseltier avatarnow if only the RIAA would stop making up lies and stop getting caught twisting things up for their own purposes, facts like this is proof that it was not about copyright, it was because hackers wanted to prove their skill against an arrogant and incompetent company and IdioT IT people that can't do their jobs correctly.
