A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

I tried really really hard to give a fuck about this, but all that came out was shit.

To expand on my post, I have a really hard time caring about a multibillion dollar corporation getting hit in a hack attack on the scale such as this. There's no reason for it other than the fact that like most companies, they don't give a flying fuck about IT security until they get nailed like this. It's something that's been repeated time and again across the planet, and none of them take any proactive measures to harden their networks, monitor incoming and outgoing communications until it's too late.

The technology is out there to monitor this stuff, hire the staff and do it and stop fucking crying when you get nailed with your pants down because you were too cheap to do in the first place.

I agree about the hack but what about the threats of 9/11 style violence against movie theaters. Any substance or empty threats?

I don't care other than biting my tongue at my liberal friends on Facebook outraged that our freedoms can be curtailed by fear, despite their calls for gun control on the anniversary of Sandy Hook...for...the same...reason.

I have no doubt t h ey take security seriously and are in good shape overall. However they are a big target and there are no doubt hackers smarter than most IT staff. And hackers are motivated by obtaining free stuff like movies music and games...a huge portion of what Sony does.

How does a hacker infiltrate a network to the point that they're apparently downloading the email database and entire movies without being noticed? Just about every large hack such as this the fault lies with something left open by the IT department and not proper monitoring of traffic and access to resources.

You know as well as I, there is more than enough technology out there to monitor access to files as well as monitor what is entering and leaving the network. I doubt that a hack of this size is a simple compromise of a secretary's PC. It very well may have been an inside job as well, but that goes right back to improper monitoring of resources.

If I recall, didn't one of Sony's online gaming systems get hacked a few years ago and had a huge customer database stolen?

The hacks seems to be revealing high level stuff from high level people who generally get less monitoring and more leeway for their personal convenience.

you don't need to hack a network, you just have to hack a high level exec who Goes in via vpn lazily or stores their password on a phone.

And monitoring everything reveals nothing when it takes time to parse through it all.

not saying anyone didn't do wrong, but a high level exec or secretary may not draw suspicion.

They are now saying N. Korea did the hack.... I guess in response to the violent end of the new movie.

Not a huge movie person.... Although I want to see "Unbroken".... But that was stupid to end a movie by blowing up Kim Jong Un. SMH.
