Regularly scheduled events Intrusion

Sony's now offers a "Service Under Maintenance" message, indicating the troubles on their network are escalating: "We have had to take the SOE service down temporarily. In the course of our investigation into the intrusion into our systems we have discovered an issue that warrants enough concern for us to take the service down effective immediately. We will provide an update later today (Monday)."

I'm more frightened by the people who think this sort of hacker action is justified. Remind me never to work with any of you.

I think you're confusing the word justified with expected. This is a common occurrence in the corporate world, there is a reason there are two entire industries built around it.

I wasn't referring to you specifically, just pointing out the number of people saying that they were "glad" the intrusion happened and saying that it's "what Sony gets for messing with hackers"... that's insidious thinking. I realize the people saying that don't have a stake in the game more than likely, but it's still a noxious idea to perpetrate, and yes, I do believe the people saying such things are considering the intrusion "justified". After all, if this happened in response to supposed slights to the hacker community, does that not make these black hats, in both word and deed, tantamount to terrorists? "Mess with us and we'll cripple your infrastructure and hopefully bring you down"... I'm not one for hyperbole, but there are parallels to be drawn here.
