Sony and Hacking

I really do find it difficult to have much sympathy for Sony.

If there is a story relating to data breaches Sony are there centre stage. Sony, the company that thought it was a good idea to include a "root-kit" on audio CDs so that they could control the users of their media computers without telling them that it was there, are now in the news from data leaks and email hacking.

I don't really have to add more here as you can find all the "dirt" on them from other sources. All I can say is that in today's relatively mature technological age, Sony should have been able to work out their own security by now.

This, in my opinion, just adds fuel to the Security Industries fire to convince businesses to hire their services. Such a pity that Sony have not seemed to have listened!
