    PSN, now LastPass… A good idea storing sensitive information remotely or not? Hmm

      The PSN “hack” turned out to be a storm in a teacup once you remove all the layers of misinformation and scaremongering the press have applied to “sex up” the story.

      No passwords were stored (only hashes), and these were not taken.

      Creditcard details were stored, but were encrypted, on a separate server and no evidence to suggest they were gotten to. (and creditcard companies are not reporting any problems).

      Sony’s servers WERE firewalled and WERE upto date.

      The LastPass hack it worrying thou, and generally 1000x worse than the PSN hack, but getting 1/1000th of the media coverage… But then everyone has been programmed to hate Sony….

        Your capital letters are really convincing. I’m tempted to believe you.

        Of course, that doesn’t exclude the fact that they were dumb asses who play console games to begin with >:-)

    Serves them right. Use Firefox and Firefox sync and you are safe. Well, at least it’s very VERY hard to get your passwords because they are encrypted, in fact, EVERYTHING is encrypted on your side, so it’s impossible for an attacker to get your data. Nobody else does this, as far as I know. Only Mozilla.

    Serves them right.
