Sony CEO Insultingly Refers To Massive Hack As A "Hiccup" While PlayStation Site Goes Down Again

May 18. 2011

 

Howard Stringer

The CEO of Sony, Howard Stringer, insanely referred to the massive hack that stole the financial and personal data of 100,000,000 of their customers as a "hiccup" while the newly relauched PlayStation site goes down and off the internet again. Anonymous is playing with him, due to the arrogant statements he keeps making. Stringer once again confirmed what I and others have stated - Sony is crazy.

 

Sony hacked for the third time

It is not some small thing that the financial data of 100,000,000 people were criminally swiped with a portion of it offered for sale on underground hacker websites. Then there's the distress factor, regarding millions of customers panicking and calling banks in a flurry over their stolen data. Banks were then unduly burdened with the issue that lax security at Sony crated. I've stated it before and I shall again, Sony headquarters is living on another planet.

Sony's Stringer Talks PlayStation Security, Anonymous

May 17, 2011 03:51pm EST - Sony chief Sir Howard Stringer on Tuesday described the disastrous PlayStation Network outage as a "hiccup," and said that no network is 100 percent secure.

In a series of interviews with Bloomberg, the Financial Times, and the Wall Street Journal, Stringer said the company is no closer to finding the culprit. Sony is now focused on the security challenges ahead; namely, staying one step ahead of cyber criminals. "Nobody's system is 100 percent secure," Stringer told Bloomberg. "This is a hiccup in the road to a network future."

PlayStation Network down again

May 18, 2011: 3:19 PM ET - Part of the PlayStation Network was down once again Tuesday, presenting Web users with this error message. Yet another wrinkle developed in the seemingly unending PlayStation Network saga on Wednesday, as Sony took down part of its network again due to a newfound exploit.

The security hole, which was first discovered by gaming blog Nyleveia and successfully exploited by Eurogamer, allows an attacker to reset a user's password and gain access to his or her account with an e-mail address and a birthday associated with the user's profile.
