Your eyes do not deceive you. Tim Schaff, the president of Sony's network entertainment called the PlayStation Network hacks a GOOD TIME.

Really? You're going to call hacks that pissed off quite a few of your customers (by quite a few I meant... ALL) and put your company and others at financial risk a "good time"? Is he batshit insane or just a mad BAMF?

Schaff believes that the hack was good experience to protect the network from further attacks.

Quote
"Great experience, really good time. Though I wouldn't like to do it again.

"A determined hacker will get you... the question is how you build your life so you're able to cope with those things."


Y'know Mr. Schaff, there's a better way to get your service a little more security... it's called PENETRATION TESTING, which your company has yet to learn about, considering its dismal display of any knowledge in web security.

Still, I like this man's attitude on things. They ought to put him at the head Sony, entirely. I have a feeling he's the type of guy who will ward off hackers, look into who they are, and then settle the issue with baseball bats and brass knuckles. The balls on the guy...

He's trying to laugh off what could have been a complete disaster.
