I swear Sony has the cheapest security infrastructure of all time


DDoS = Security ??



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Hmmm...worked fine for me today.



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

Jeez, some people just don't understand the difference between hacking and DDos attacks. Last time I checked, overloading servers with a ton of traffic isn't hacking. The definition of hacking is bypassing security, breaking into someone's computer or device, and being able to modify/manipulate the device, usually for malicious purposes. You do not bypass security in a DDos attack nor do you break into someone's device during the process, thus being unable to modify/manipulate it. You merely overload the servers, computer, or whatever to the point they shut or significantly slow down.


The fighter is trying to spin it is security to make PSn look bad, yet LIVE is also down now.



Are we on the point we start blaming Sony for beeing the Victim of cyber terrorism yet ?

The same group of retards has been DDosing veryone this week, they are now on Ms and Live has shut down cause of it. They also attacked the Wildstar servers, Blizzards WoW servers and a bunch of other things. We should be blaming the retards doing this not Sony or Ms or anyone else.
