Sony Goes Silent As Its Hacking Spree Snowballs – Andy Greenberg – The Firewall – Forbes

Sony seems to have run out of apologies. When the company’s unprecedented string of security breaches began last month, a spokesperson for Sony’s PlayStation network was tasked with repeatedly thanking users for their patience during the tech giant’s network outage. When it became clear that more than 100 million users’ information had been exposed to hackers, it was Kazuo Hirai, a Japanese executive widely believed to be next in line for Sony’s CEO position, who bowed and expressed his regrets. And when the outage stretched on for 24 days, the company’s president Howard Stringer himself apologized and went on the PR offensive, declaring that “we are up and running, and we are safer than ever.” But now that Sony’s apology cards have been played and the hacks and breaches continue, the company has resorted to its only remaining tactic: silence. The Japanese giant hasn’t responded publicly or answered my requests for comment on the five security incidents that have occurred in just the last week.
