    Interesting indeed, but this part is obviously false:
    We all know how Sony security is.

    I might watch Die Hard 4 later.

    Depends which part of their security we're looking at. Obviously some of their websites were able to be SQL injected, which is pathetic.

    Then again, their serious stuff (r&d) is likely locked down much more than anything else.

    You've posted several times yourself in the 'PSN/Sony misery thread' (link) and (could) know f.i. that details of over 10000 debit/credit cards were gathered.
    Doesn't that equate to a not-so-well-protected system and 'secret information' being accessed?.

    Mr. Kaspersky isn't a hacking expert, so who knows. Seriously though, he made a mistake like a human being.

    The rest he showed greater knowledge and experience.

    What about Lockheed Martin and Google?

    Do not solely focus on Sony!

    If you want to be objective...:doubt:

    ^I think there's a clear line between the Sony and the Lockeed Martin+Google intrusions.
    The first, the intial Sony hacks, seem mainly €€-driven (and all the ensuing drama more ego related) attacks on poorly protected Sony infrastructure while the latter two are much more 'strategic info'-driven attacks on 'well' protected systems.
    But let's just agree to disagree on the differences.

    @Mr.PC: Sony for sure has/had poor protection, while I'm uncertain on the other 2.
