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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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...

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.

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.

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****.

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

you know these groups HAVE to be infiltrated by interpol and the FBI..... there has to be someone who got in by now

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 like to grab the popcorn and sit back as these 'hacking' groups self-destruct. You can't bottle up all of that nerd-rage and expect it to stay in one, uniform, steaming pile for very long. Feelings are hurt, harsh words are said, and eventually everything blows all to hell. Oh yeah, then people turn 15 years old and move on.

Emotion and nerdrage? Sony provoked some nerds, no doubt, but I think being an easy target is what's allowed these attacks to continue. There's no doubt they'd probably shift their attention elsewhere if Sony did their job protecting their millions of users.

sweet finally they get owned i hope they will pay full price because cause of injustice from sony ideology

only 54mb? sheesh even with compression the source for some of our projects are hundreds of megs... must not have much backend coding

When you stripe security functions, you end up with less code

This is my opinion...Sony needs to take every single server offline until they can provide actual security. The more this happens, the worse the company image becomes. They need to do some serious damage control.

Then they'd never come online...

Why don't these hackers use there skills to get good jobs, and stop sitting in a dark room hacking company's for no good resin? Sony is not good with security, we get it... Just move on from it..

I m sorry after all the hacking going on and then these LulzSec guys claiming they did it well when the cops etc get them i hope they Pass go and straight to Jail !! ... they desrve full punishment for what they have done over the past few weeks/months ... no ur guys are not gods .. UR JUST SAD ******S!

i understand doing it and then say emailing the company and say hey ur unsecure look fix it ...but BLACK MAILING them by releasing source code and personal details ...is simply breaking the law so when the next hacker like Goerge Hotz gets an injunction .... guess what i hope u go to hell ;p ... no simpathy from me

Maybe what you can translate what the guy in the first comment said?

Now the only thing left would be to have Sonys E3 conference hacked in the middle of it. I mean, ya it sucks but still, you know you'd laugh a bit.

I would laugh. It'd be like back in the day when a MS presentation would BSOD, or when something does not quite work for Jobs when he's on stage

Hell, I'm kinda loving this hacking stuff, I got a bunch of free games...

Yeah because going to @LulzSec is much harder

Also it's scedev.net not secdev.net
