    I guess it is time to arrest more people for developing Linux drivers...

    When I first saw the title on ps3hax I had a big grin on my face, but as I read through the article the grin became a little shrug instead, that is if we believe what $ony are telling us, that the hackers got the usernames and passwords from some other website or service, and as we know many people use the same email and password for multiple sites and services.

    So this isnt really a hacking of $ony servers, rather the hackers seeing if people used the same details on $ony accounts. So not a big a news story as we were hoping for, but since $ony is the only company to claim the hackers tested the data on, it is $ony who is going to look a little worse off considering the previous hackings.

    It is most likely the hackers tested the positive hits on other sites, but I bet those companies are going to keep quite for as long as possible.

    I would mostly agree...with one minor exception. Sony claims that 90,000 accounts were compromised. That means that there were probably 500,000 or more attack attempts before sony did anything.
