Members of Beyond3D Show PSN Servers Were Patched Up to Date Prior to being Hacked


Bitmob has recently posted some detective work performed by the talented members of Beyond3D that shows Sony’s Apache servers were running version 2.2.17 which is the most recent version available. They did this very simply by pulling up the info in Google webcache from March 23 showing the last update of the server.

Furthermore they provide the full statement from Dr. Stafford saying that he has no information about what protections they had in place, showing that he has been quoted out of context and spread across the internet like a wildfire with the incorrect information.

All this info coming after Sony claimed the servers were patched and updated as well.

    @Eddie: You might edit the first sentence to something like, “Bitmob…shows Sony’s Apache servers were running version 2.2.17, which is the most recent version available, at the time of the April 17-20 attacks.” That might make the context more clear to those who aren’t au courant with this debate.
