Another Security Breach at Sony

If this is your first visit to this blog, please start here.  This particular discussion starts here.

Just as Sony was trying to reassure Congress at a data security hearing, hacker group LuizSec posts another 1 million names, addresses, date of birth, and passwords.  LuizSec stated, “Why do you put such faith in a company that allows itself to become open to these simple attacks?”  This must not look good for the new security officer at Sony!

LuizSec stated that a single “injection” allowed this access.  OK, so there’s a security hole, but why wasn’t the data encrypted?  This lack of encryption boggles my mind!
