Perhaps you and I watched a different video. Yes Sony did apoligize, however they retained that all of their servers were in fact up to date. They also stated that they were not aware of any issues with the current firmware.

Personal attacks wont' be tolerated boss. You can either have a friendly debate, or don't post. I'm a grown ass man fyi.

I suggest that if you are having credit card issues, then you send that info to the appropriate people and not spam it all over other boards. Coincidently nobody else is reporting similar issues minus a few "forum" members on various sites with no proof that it has anything to do with the Sony hack. I'll take the credit card company's word over a random forum member any day.

As far as your card was encrypted, the date was not kept on file and neither was the CVV or CSC so its unlikely to do with Sony's hack.

There were 900 credit cards on old SOE servers that were not encrypted however.

Now I suggest you play nice in here, or look for your answers elsewhere. We have been nothing but polite as not agreeing with you does not indicate we are jerks.

I unlike you, simply want people to be informed.

I started this topic due to an Internet search that did not yield help, I found the method of work around by myself. It was posted for the sole reason of assisting and informing others.

This BANTER was of your creation not mine. You took this off topic not me.

I am not looking for anything, as for you I never said you were not a "Grown Ass Man" I simply say by your own actions, you are in fact an ASS.

If you work for Sony it shows, if not, open your mind and get all the facts not just those that are in benefit of Sony, but those whom only care about the truth.  

I quote facts from reliable sources, not rumors nor, from an open attempt by Sony to protect themselves with good reason. 

If in fact you take the time to READ sources other than from Sony, or those linked to by Sony and Sony supporters, you would in fact see more than what they want you to see.

In Sony's television response, not in Person but by written release they did in fact apologize for lack of security. This was a carefully attorney orchestrated move to some how maintain face.

You only want to believe what you want, and do not care about any thing more, this is proven by your public stance. If  you had compassion for others you would in fact want to aid and assist others, not banter from a sole position of narrow minded defense, as if someone were attacking you.

You respond like a jerk, so you get referred to as a jerk, nothing more, nothing less.

You ignore those hurt and those that will be hurt, and facts about encryption, server and network security.

If someone asks me for my credentials including YOU, I will gladly provide them, including Microsoft, Cisco, Novell. I am Certified Network in all three.

 I understand my responsibility on a network, as such by your comments you appear to be void of this.

 Just because they say it is someone else's fault, does not make it true. 

As a person in charge of creating and maintaining a network,  and you fail to maintain and monitor your network, then like the problems with Sony it will be on the network engineers and administrators,  when hackers  takes advantage of those failures, both THEY and the hackers hold a legal liability.

While Black Hat hackers are criminals,  I do not and never will condone any of that sort of action. The security of a network and the servers on it, are the responsibility of those who create it and those whom are charged with maintaining and monitoring it. Failure to do so when personal information especially Credit Card info is at risk, is whether you wish to believe it or not, against the law and in the US, PUNISHABLE. It is in the Courts that the level of guilt and punishment will be determined, this is why the lawsuits will not be dropped.  

As far as info responsibility of a company to make Credit Card info secure the FTC, would be a good place to start reading.

Slash Dot would be a good place for the untrained as far as network security goes, and while there you will see why Apache is one of the better choices.

Topic closed. What's done is done. No use arguing about it. Unless you have a time machine, then you can go back and fix it.
