    It sucks that Sony aparrently never learn.

    Yeah sony, sue another hacker like geohot, ha ha, that was not a good idea !!!!

    I think the hackers could also pm sony, using a Thor email that they have security flaws and give them a deadline before they re “test” the security of their servers.

    Hacking is good in some way, because the security is getting stronger everyday, but hacking in to Sony just to proof their security is sh*t isn’t the right way in my opinion.

    I do hope sony learns from this and that they will be securing their servers even better.

    sony have made so many enemies because of shuting down all the old game servers which people loved
    🙁 i lost a game very special to me

    They never learn, but yet we still purchase their product
    and trust them with our personal information.

      And how about you read my article, and realize you are talking of something that happened 3 weeks ago, while we are talking of something that happened yesterday?

      The content within that link is about the tweet from Anonymous a few weeks ago. This article is about a different incident, caused by different people. I’m not saying this one is legit, but it has nothing to do with the tweet by Anonymous.
      On a side note, I don’t think anon are stupid enough to tweet for bragging rights and that tweet was probably from someone else.

        Don’t underestimate the raw stupidity and artificially inflated ego of those newfags calling themselves “Anonymous”. Ultimately they’re just a bunch of hipsters jumping on the bandwagon, so even if one went out on his own he’d soon get 100+ morons to follow him easily.

      I see that now, I apologize for that.
      I need to pay more attention, obviously.

  6. randy is pseudo

    I like sony, dont get me wrong, but they are idiots to be honest. They put their customers through a lot of ***. High priced systems, lack of support from 3rd parties for vita, gimmicks like touch screen and touch pad on back, sure some cool features, but that doesnt mean you have to price it too high. PS3 is ok but lacks sooo soo much compared to an xbox. all im tryin to say is that sony messed up, and they keep at it. i wish they could change

    Can these hacker punish Sony without involving the innocent users smh, if they wanna do some real good they should hack and get the psvita source code lol then they would really do Sony some damage.

  8. M

    If this is true, they deserve it for shutting down Studio Liverpool.

    my Bitdefender is blocking sonymobile
    The page is blocked by Bitdefender Cloud(Antiphishing).

    Wololo – how come you haven’t posted on yifanlus new vita work? He is currently developing VHBL ported to vita called userland vita loader. He also found a usermode exploit on the vita os. Seems like this should be worthy of the front page.

  11. busterg

    sony should have never got rid of dual boot on the ps3 for linux.

  12. Squiggs

    Why should the customers get punished for what sony had or had not done?

    • matt

      We “vote” for Sony by buying from them. It’s the same logic as used for anti-state terrorism; even if individual citizens may have very little actual control of political policies, especially international & war policies, we are still seen as culpable because we allow the policies by our support of the existing system.

      It’s not nice, or particularly moral, but it’s enough justification to make the hackers not feel guilty for stealing your personal info. This is assuming that this isn’t a group that regularly hacks to steal people’s personal info, of course. If they’re willing to steal anyone’s info for personal gain with no guilt, then Sony is simply a more attractive & “bigger” target because lots of the internet hates Sony.

  13. mohsin

    sony made enemies because they were too selfish for money they are going downhill now.

  14. Wololosupporter

    Guys honestly. Anything can be hacked nowadays. Look at the iPhone. Look at the Xbox. Yes Sony is doing a crappy job on the software side but it’s not up to the whole company in which direction they go. It’s up to the higher ups. And these people using Exploits that they find isn’t them showing Sony up. It’s themselves in turn being greedy and using Sony as a scapegoat to get money. I love technology and everything can be broken into given the right resources.

    Know a better punishment? Rereleasing unpatched gaming exploits! >;D or even worse for FREE so we all can install hacks on our Sony systems!

    hey, I can dream can’t I.. 😀

  16. PsVITAHackbeginner

    Dear Wololo,

    Why do you keep deleting my post’s?

  19. Leroy

    @ Wololo, the site wasn’t showing the post’s due to bad network, My apologies for the complaint.

  20. james way

    If they were really trying to do some good they would release the usernames and passwords to Sony, via email, not for the whole world. Give THEM proof that you got in, but keep us millions of users unharmed.

  21. DigiTak

    *Reads this and turns on Tor* There. I guess….

  22. AyeGuy

    Makes me like microsoft alittle more…

  23. yyy

    Out of curiousity, what proof is there that this is real? I’ve tried to login using a few of those login/passwords on Pastebin, and none of them works.

    • wololo

      No proof. Just a strong gut feeling because the information has been relayed by a lot of trusted sources, and nobody has denied it yet. The credentials in the pastebin are login/hash, not login/password. You’d need to know the hashing used in order to get the password from that. These look like md5 hashes, so most likely they are very easy to “reverse”.

      • yyy

        Sorry, my mistake. I thought that the info was password:e-mail, but i see now that it is just username:e-mail.

        If the hases are easy to reverse, why havn’t anyone done it yet? I’m not saying that you’re lying, i’m just wondering if it its very to reverse it, this would also mean that it should be very easy to verify that the hack is real.

    Je suis le seul à trouver le nouveau systeme de téléchargement de la vita pourave ?

  25. Mario

  27. NeoTechni

    And I hope those jerks go to prison for it.
    That’s not the right way to get a site to improve security.
