Blumenthal Praises Sony's Response To PSN Ordeal
It seems all the top stories concerning the current PlayStation Network outage revolve around exaggeration, falsities, and outright hatred.
Of course, that means the more down-to-earth and informative articles disappear in the chaos. Not long after the Internet exploded with news about Sony being dragged before Congress (or so it was stated), and Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal's "scathing" letter to Sony executives demanding they react, another story has surfaced: Blumenthal now says Sony's response to this whole mess "could serve as a model for other companies facing similar criminal hacking."
In a released statement, Blumenthal praised Sony's plan to offer identity theft protection for PSN users, and called it a "strong first step toward protecting millions of consumers." He still believes Sony could've warned users earlier (and in that respect, we agree), but in the long run, this breach should remind us that "our laws and data security resources must keep pace with advancing technology." Cyber-terrorism is bound to be a very real problem in the coming years, and as most security experts say, your information isn't really safe anywhere.
