Sony Criticized For Lack Of Cyber-Security

Posted on June 12, 2011 AT 08:35am

Sony has been the victim of attack after attack and is being threatened by someone new every week but is their lack of protection against these attacks worrying?

It all began with the attack on the PlayStation Network which took the service down for a number weeks and then the other week Sony Music was attacked and the details of a million users were taken.

Experts of the Cyber Consequences Unit of the United States, a research group engaged in monitoring online threats were emphatic when they said that passwords should never be stored in plain text. Even the group Lulzsec who stole the data from Sony Music called it disgraceful and insecure that the files were so easy to obtain and stored in plain text.

Sony is taking a hammering but how can they get people back on side?
