Sony Pictures Entertainment has learned a brutal lesson that cybercriminals can successfully launch organized attacks, crippling networks. Meanwhile, hackers temporarily dropped the Sony PlayStation Network and Microsoft Xbox Live, disrupting online activity for millions of console gamers.
Unfortunately, hackers are having their way with networks, while consumers are becoming more desensitized due to the large number of users being victimized.
"Obviously it's not something that anybody wants, for any of the partners," Slatoff recently said. "We certainly wouldn't want it for Sony or Microsoft or Steam or us for that matter. Or any of our competitors. Sadly, it's a reality of life. And I think it's a reality of connected networks."
