It's a lession in basic system security structures. All the security was more or less on the PS3 and not so much on the PSN servers. I really hope someone gets fired at Sony HQ over this. very poorly designed overall.
Also, Japan is usually considered "eastern culture" while the US is "western".
Off topic: Am I the only one who is shocked no one has ever publicly took a crack at breaking into the XBOX Live servers? They're pretty much just running a clustered Windows Server 2003 as the backbone for the system. Surprised MS hasn't been hacked yet. Guess it's considered "too easy" for the crackers? lol

I'm not condoning the crackers responsible for the attack, I'm just saying the homebrew and geek community was completely satisfied with the Linux option on the PS3 where they could code for the system to their hearts' content.

You better have children well into their teens to even make such a comment.
