    imaprettyhotguy said: You can brute force it open with a supercomputer, if I am wrong it's on semantics not on point  No, you can't. It would be faster to type in every letter combination possible than to crack the encryption using a modern supercomputer. The encryption methods are too good. You are wrong about the point, not the semantics. You realize you are arguing with...

    imaprettyhotguy said: You don't need the key, you can break it without the key Technically, no you can't. Breaking it would require you figure out what the key is in order to make it work.   Without the key you would just have random gibberish. It would be impossible to get anything meaningful without a key. I have to again advise against using terms you are unfamiliar with....

    Ail said: A lot of people are acting like this is the biggest hack ever. It isn't like I posted earlier in this thread. There have been bigger hacks in the last 5 years that stole more sensitive information ( like 100 million confirmed credit card accounts , some of them with SSN and personall information). This is just the one with the most publicity.... And it every previous case it took...

    imaprettyhotguy said: Yes they would, encryptions can be broken they have no way of knowing if the hacker has the ability or the tools or the will to break it  By the time the encryption is broken the password is changed, and your work is null and void. There is no point in taking encrypted passwords. Thats why you encrypt the passwords. Also, it is known now that the data was...

    BMaker11 said: Banks have some high end security. Infrared lighting, cameras, thick security walls, etc. They still get robbed. Is it the bank's fault that someone knew what to do to get the money of the many customers the bank holds? That's what you're basically saying right now. I'd say cameras (to see who enters the bank), thick walled vaults (so they can't easily be broken into),...

    New FAQ from Sony regarding the PSN hack situation

    in Sony Discussion on 28 April 2011

    Doobie_wop said: So they encrypted the credit card details, that shows that they were'nt negligent and that they actually had some sturdy security backing it up, which also means that the hackers most likely haven't been able to get the credit card details or they are struggling to break the encryption, which could take years of effort on their part if it was what I'm guessing it was. It also...

    Max King of the Wild said: If i knew you. worked or went to school with you. I would be able to get the same info that sony did not encrypt. Not true at all. I never give out my passwords, or log-ins if I can avoid that but that is often the same as display name. I also very rarely give out my email address so it is unlikely you would get that either unless I felt you had a reason...

    psrock said: So much for the Credit card stolen stories. Credit card info could still have been stolen. It is just not very likely at this point. That has been the line the entire time though so I don't get this comment. At least they admit they didn't encrypt the personal data. That is grossly negligent in my eyes, but perhaps not legally. How you can store information that sensitive...

    fordy said: It takes a great deal of complexity to brute-force decrypt a digested password hash. This is why they're used. Even if taken, they're still pretty useless, so they wouldn't be kicking up a fuss that they were stolen. You really should research the use use before trying to argue your stance on it. Secondly, I stated quite clearly that it MAY be a rumour, but if it is indeed...

They're negligent. They didn't care by making such a weak network." If their network is so weak, why don't you hack it then?
