is back, and we're happy. We were even happy to hear Sony apologize
to it's partners, and especially to us gamers. However, Sony still
faces significant hurdles. Ones that could mean very big problems for
them, and that really question their apology to its users and affiliates.
near the end of the outage a class action lawsuit was filed against
Sony for the security breach of their users information. While no
evidence of leaked credit cards has appeared lawyers have found
evidence that Sony might have had an idea that attacks were coming,
and could have prevented them. According to a confidential witness.
two weeks prior to the attack Sony had fired a large amount of
employees. A significant number of these were those responsible for
network security. Even more shocking is that it was revealed that not
long before the attacks Sony had put a lot of money into securing
their proprietary development server, while they declined to
match this spending with the server containing user information. This
all done in the face of minor breaches Sony was dealing with before
the full on attack on the network. Whether this witness is credible
is the question. With a new case being brought up against them Sony
is in for some trouble. With two lawsuits against them their only
hope is to prey that no one's credit card information was
compromised. As of this moment there have been no reports of this,
but Sony is still in a lot of hot water.
while most of us are not too concerned with the past, other than it
repeating, we know the worse is over. However, one nation still feels
this issue. Sony's own home country of Japan. The country has had to
sit and watch while most of the world got PSN returned to them. There
are still no word of when Japan will be reconnected to the network.
It seems Jack Treton wasn't Speaking to the Japanese during his
apology at E3.
