PSN Down Problems are not better for Sony and its networks (still down): The polity is in search of the great Spafford Hack, where Sony 100 meg individual accounts (potential) threat. Under Security Expert Dr. Gene workers reportable that Sony servers installed firewall is not on Sony, and that the version of Athapascan (web server), the Sony software was using the section was current education system. That's pretty bad, for individuals to ingest as to date, it also makes it inferior arduous for hackers to break into their systems.

As a rule, the Community and resolves section vulnerabilities. Nevertheless, these vulnerabilities are very well documented. It shows that hackers do not even feature a actual contest back to it in the first place.
