Is that this security breach was a server-side flaw. "Hacking" a PS3 shouldn't give anyone access to critical PSN information any more than hacking a computer or install of Firefox would give you access to Amazon's customer database.
The tools to defend against this type of attack have been available for years. I can build a secure e-commerce store in a matter of hours and get it locked down to prevent this type of information breach using off-the-shelf software. Why can't Sony do the same on their PROPRIETARY system?
No matter whether you think Sony was in the right over the Geohotz fiasco, they royally screwed the pooch on this one.
And that is no one's fault but their own. They deserve every bit of bad press they're going to get over this.
