Sony and Insecurity Part II

Just when Sony thought it was safe to go and apologize for having 77 million PSN user accounts hacked into, they go and have another 24.6 million hacked via it's Sony Online Entertainment network.  So that's over 100 million Sony users who have had personal data stolen.

Sony needs to make SERIOUS changes to the way they do business and the lessons they learn from this should also be lessons that other online service providers learn from.  They are hard lessons to learn, sure, but they are essential lessons to learn.

Anyone using cloud solutions needs to know exactly how secure those services are - issues like this from Sony, a sizeable company, just show how susceptible we all are with these services.
