Sony Developer Network source code leaked

Things just do not seem to be going Sony's way these last few weeks. First their entire PlayStation Network was hacked with information stolen and quickly leaked onto the Internet, then when the service was relaunched, the website was once again taken down due to an exploit.

After a number of other Sony-related product hacks, the latest one comes just after LulzSecurity managed to successfully hack Sony Pictures and Sony BMG. This time, LulzSecurity managed to obtain the source code for Sony Computer Entertainment Developer Network.

The website, scedev.net, houses all of the developer tools and kits for Sony products including PlayStation 3, PSP, Blu-Ray and many other products. However, the hack only managed to gather the source code for the website, and not the actual database.

The continued attacks on Sony have unveiled a number of their key online servers being unsecure. Later today, Sony will take the stage at E3 and talk a little bit about the recent PSN outage.

Of course it has already been done. They will slowly disappear as one by one, they are arrested and put to justice.
I wonder if it will seem all worth it when they are taking it from Bubba in the big house...

i was under the impression that they only leaked a copy of the website source code, nothing really 'juicy'.

Sony needs to hire 'Seal Team 6', The Bad-Asses Who Killed Osama Bin Laden. and havem hunt all these hackers down and put a bullet in there heads because i'm tired of there bull****.

looks like their twitter is down now
When Sony went after that Geohot guy they ****ed off the wrong type of people. This has nothing to do with a hacker proving their skills. It has to do with the hacking community striking out against Sony for their actions against one of their own.

I don't like Sony, and they probably deserve it, but the hackers are getting just as sickening anymore. If they catch the hackers they need to post their personal info everywhere, along with all their passwords everywhere, for anyone to use. Even put it on bittorrent for free use.

Why sony? Why not the RIAA?

The RIAA has been successful in attacking themselves more than anything. No real sense in targeting them. Also, not having poor security could be a factor as well...

You two just remind me about the time I was young while a few army scouters was patrolling an area and forgot his grenade on the ground. As curious as I was, I took it and try to open it. It was made kid-safe I guess. I try to knock it on the tree hump a few times to loosen it so I can open it. But I guess my luck didn't ran out.

I like how Steven Colbert put it: Don't stick your penis in a beehive.

Oh man, I laughed at that

They keep it up and sooner or latter they'll get arested and i hope they spend the next 25 to 60 years in prison.

Hack away, I say. If Sony can't find its own flaws, have them pointed out to them.

Sony will be better off for it in the end. Anyone who manages sensitive information online needs to take notes and be proactive.

Point it out to them privately, and give them time to fix it. Not straight away in public.

Seems like Sony only patched the leak in the dike. They didn't actually solve the problem...so...all this hacker did was punch another hole in the dike.

I know Sony is a world wide comglomorate, but jesus LulzSec really needs to back off any give them a chance to breathe, I mean is there any real point? or is it just for the "Lulz"?

Its because of this mayhem that a lot of people are just giving up on their PS3s, I mean a few friends of mine who have been loyal sony fans, sold their PS3s and got 360s because of the network outtage.

No patience I guess.
