Pride goeth before a fall

Hotz clearly doesn’t have much sympathy for Sony. He says in the blog post that Sony invited the attack by making enemies of hackers: “The fault lies with the executives who declared a war on hackers, laughed at the idea of people penetrating the fortress that once was Sony, whined incessantly about piracy, and kept hiring more lawyers when they really needed to hire good security experts. Alienating the hacker community is not a good idea.

Dear Sony, attorneys do not make good CTOs.

  1. And who can forget Sony’s famous protected audio CDs that installed a rootkit on the machines of unsuspecting consumers who dared playing their music on personal computers. I recall that rootkit left a nasty and gaping security hole which could be used to compromise the machines and was very difficult to remove.
