    Sony Spends $15 Million To Fix Cyber Security

    https://www.tomshardware.com/news/son...ity,28507.html

    In a financial report, Sony announced that it will be investing 1.8 billion yen (or $15 million USD) to investigate the cyberattacks which occurred recently and strengthen its security against future cyberattacks.

    Following the development of a film The Interview, Sony suffered a series of hacks throughout the company. As a result, films, software, coding, financial information, and even personal information on both employees records and user accounts for the PlayStation Network were leaked on the Internet.

    As a result of the personal information leaked, Sony already has had to take action to remedy the situation. PlayStation users who had information stolen filed a class action lawsuit against Sony. Last month, Sony agreed to a $15 million settlement, giving out games to many users, and cash to some who could document the identity theft.

    Good guy Sony, but I'm still not convinced enough to trust you with my personal information.

    How is this good news?
    Do you expect anything different? They just had thousands of their employee's SSNs leaked, lost tons of money with the leaking of unreleased movies -- did you expect them to spend less on their security? If they spent less the people who got their SSN leaked and other information would feel as if it's not enough and be very suspicious of their care/protection for their employees.

    $15 Million? That's it? I think they should spend more, for what happened, but hey that's just me being too cautious.

    I didn't think they would spend any money, they just seem like the type of people that don't give two shits if their info gets released.
