Security expert: PSN still isn’t safe

Friday, 3 June 2011 12:24 GMT By Johnny Cullen

An ex-hacker turned security expert has claimed that the now fully-restored PlayStation Network is still unsafe from outside attacks from hackers.

Gregory Evans of Ligatt Security International, who served two years in federal prison whilst as a hacker, told IG that gamers could probably expect more hacks in the future.

“Even if Sony had never been hacked, when anybody goes online to do anything, play games, search the Internet… you’re always taking a risk that somebody might get your information. When you’re connected to your Wi-Fi and you’re playing online games it’s opening up hundreds of ports,” said Evans.

“Each one of those ports is like a door that a hacker can use to bypass your firewall and get into your computer. In the gaming community, most people don’t even know this is happening. They just think I’m going online to play games and everything’s fine.”

He continued further: “The problem remains that Sony and most big corporations have IT managers designing their networks and security. Even if these guys have a Master’s Degree or PhD from a school like MIT, that doesn’t make them a true security expert. It’s scary and these attacks will continue to happen.”

Evans’ remarks follows news last night that Sony Pictures website was hacked, with 1,000,000 passwords compromised by the external intrusion.

The group behind the hack, LuizSec, said that passwords weren’t encrypted, and were stored in plain text.

The Sony Pictures hack comes just a day after PSN was fully restored following an hacking which seen the service go down and personal data of 77 million users compromised.

  1. Gekidami

    Wonder how many idiots will just read the headline before commenting?

    What this guy is really saying:
    “No one, no company is safe from hackers no matter what they do”.

    What a headline needs to grab more attention:

    Well done, VG247, i doubt Bill O’Reilly could’ve done a better spin job.

    The whole Internet isn’t safe.

  3. Freek

    That is infact not what he is saying at all. You as a person can be hacked if you haven’t set up a proper firewall or router or use Wi-Fi, those things are open to atack.
    But that’s only your personal connection.

    Then he goes on to point out that allot of big coporations have people in charge of building their security systems that are not fully qualified to do the job.
    That’s not to say the whole interenet is unsafe, just the parts that aren’t properly secured by people who know what they are doing.

    But the guy is working in that sector, so all this could verry wel just be his sales pitch.

  4. DrDamn

    Yep – though they are just copying the headline from IG. The actual statement was …
    IG: Sony has said they implemented new security. Do you believe PlayStation Network and Qriocity are hacker-proof now?

    No. And it’s not just Sony gamers that are at risk. It’s anyone who has any online gaming console like Xbox or Wii. Nothing’s 100 percent secure.

    #1 yes but i think the part that is key in this post is “He continued further: “The problem remains that Sony and most big corporations have IT managers designing their networks and security. Even if these guys have a Master’s Degree or PhD from a school like MIT, that doesn’t make them a true security expert. It’s scary and these attacks will continue to happen.”

    Therefore it might mean as a possiblity that the people in sonys security department doesnt know to much about hackers methods, even if they are profesionals in their respective field, sony tend to not contract ex hackers to do this, something that maybe microsoft does, and maybe for that is more secure than sony system, i agree with you that theres no safe company, but maybe some companys are a bit better prepare than others.
    P.S and the title of this post represents the words of Grefory evans so in my eyes it fits the content, he especifically mention sony IMHO

    Also, considering Sony Corp. has just had millions of its users’ data compromised over the last few weeks, and the fact that another wing of the company has, again, been hacked, and that the data stolen was personal info in plain text format, I think that the headline is more than befitting.

    Basically, Sony doesn’t know its arse from its elbow and have been lax and arrogant; not just the PS division, but across the company, it seems.

    The PS3 was rushed out, the PSN was a rush job, everything about this gen from Sony is get it out there, doesn’t matter if it works or not, clean it up afterwards. It’s like Windows 98 all over again. But this time, people’s data was invaded.

    Everyone seems to think they’re got it all sussed out. Like there are meetings:

    “I know, let’s just distort stories to attract attention and create conflct when there isn’t one!”

    “Great idea.”

    “Hold on. What about our journalistic integrity? Won’t we turn more people away if we’re wrong.”

    “I don’t fucking care! It’s all about hits, hits, HITS!!!!”

    “Ok, let’s pick on poor, poor, recently hacked, victim, in-no-way-responsible, nor accountable, not guilty nor lazy and definitely not arrogant, Sony. That’ll drum up the traffic.”

    “Yeah. The kids love it.”

    If that’s the way, or even remotely like the way you think it goes down, well, then you need to stop judging people by your own standards.

    It’s business as usual and nothing to get your panties in a twist about, everybody does this sort of thing, but it’s hardly groundbreaking journalism.

    If you have a problem with blog commentators who make unsupported assertions and wave them around as though they are facts, I would refer you to post #12.

    Not even the FBI and Congress are satisfied that they have enough information to judge the adequacy of Sony’s security measures, but clearly you have pulled together enough information here and there to make much better judgments than professional investigators.

    If you are willing to criticize others for acting as though they have it “all sussed out” when the evidence is lacking or inconclusive as to their claims, then perhaps it would be more appropriate for you to hold your tongue when you are about to make the same mistakes.

    I dont see how Sony getting hacked, then another branch that has nothing to do with PSN getting hacked means that quote mining is suddenly ok.

    Fact is, this headline is quote mining what the guy actually said, It would be the same if it was about the 360 or Wii which is also mentions as not being safe to the same extent as PSN right now.

Did the neighbors trust me with their personial bank accounts/life savings and other private info for me to stroe in my house?

    These measures have been “documented” primarily by people who either not in a position to know, or who are not responsible for the accuracy of their claims. You are treating the adequacy of the previous security measures as though it is an open-and-shut case, when the reality of the ongoing investigation does not reflect your position.

    We know that the measures were not adequate to stop the successful attack. What we do not know is whether the measures were legally insufficient, whether they fell below industry standards, whether their implementation was “negligent,” or whether Sony bears any responsibility for the success of the attack.

    I understand that you are disappointed with this situation. But that does not change the fact that these sorts of claims require evidence, not accusations. Accusations abound, but the evidence is largely not available to the gaming press. We still do not know the nature of the intrusion, the putatively inadequate measure that allowed for the intrusion to occur, the identity of the person(s) who conducted the breach, what measures this party had to take in order to make the attack succeed, whether this party was an insider or outsider as to the network, and whether the breach would have occurred even if Sony’s security had been cutting-edge. These are very important facts, and while you and many others are eager to have an opinion about Sony based on the bare fact that the attack was successful, I don’t think it’s appropriate to rush to conclusions when we lack so much critical evidence.

    We have plenty of accusations from people who had no specific information about Sony’s network. We have IRC chat logs from dubious sources that are not responsible for the accuracy of their reports. We even have some opinions of Sony executives. But none of these sources, and indeed nothing we have at our disposal at this time, can tell us the important facts about the attack in question. That is precisely the reason why I think your claims are insufficiently grounded, and why I think you should hesitate to assert them as though they are facts.

    I should add, that with my abouve post and opinon being said, I do believe that Sony got caught in a “Perfect Storm”, and I also believe that it could have happened to a lot of other services out there. Maybe Nintendo. Maybe Microsoft.

    And I also believe that we are not done reading about this or that service being attacked. Cyber terrorism is prolly the biggest threat to our past time to come along. Esp as the industry evolves and moves into Cloud/streaming game services and other digital distrubution platforms. Heck I stoped playing WoW because of the account hacking.

    Its going to remain a very big problem.

    #40 4 years ago
  41. DSB

    @39 The fact that they lost all their accounts pretty much means that it was far below industry standards. That sort of thing could never happen with adequate protection.

    If you have millions of accounts being kept by your company, the first thing you do is make sure that you can never lose them all at once. You compartmentalize.

    That way you might lose one unit of accounts, but at that point you’ll be on full alert and able to protect the vast majority of remaining accounts.

    It’s more than folly to think that a company with adequate protection could ever lose all it’s information all at once.

    And you should probably take into account that Sony has done everything but confirm the fact that they were not on top of their game. From very senior executives no less.

    I obviously wasn’t referring to the PSN hack.

    Sony really should just fire every single guy in the IT department and hire new stuff.

    I reiterate, the identity of the attacker and what sort of access they had to the network is very important information. One of Sony’s reactions to the attack was to physically relocate the servers to a more secure location. This raises the question of whether physical access to the servers played a role in the attack at issue. If the attacker was, for example, someone who had physical access to the servers, he may have had security clearance such that compartmentalization of the data may not have prevented him from accessing whichever part of it he wanted. In this situation it could have been a case of Sony literally leaving the front door to its server building open.

    Remember also that the largest portion of the compromised information, the 77M PSN accounts, has not been published anywhere or actually used to commit fraud (assuming the banks are able to catch it all). What we know from Sony is that the attacker had access to all this data, not that he actually took all of it or was able to take all of it. The facts we know are consistent with Sony being unable to identify which portions of the data a hacker accessed, in which case the only safe assumption is that all the data is at risk.

    Regardless, DSB, you make a very good point. Information about whether the data was compartmentalized would be very helpful in determining whether the security measures in place before the attack were adequate. But I don’t think we know what the measures were in this regard, even with Sony’s statements that all of the information could have been taken.

    As far as executives go, however, their statements seem more like damage control to me. Sony did not keep its customers’ data safe from this attack, and the higher-ups recognize the fact that people will hold them accountable for Sony’s problems, even when these problems arise from circumstances beyond their control (but I will not assume that these circumstances really were outside of the company’s control). In the case of network security, however, executives are not technicians. I doubt Howard Stringer has ever had to set up a home network, let alone an international one. His statements say much more about the face Sony is trying to put on to the outside world than they do about whether people working beneath him were sleeping on the job. Maybe they were. Maybe I should wait for Congress to tell us what it thinks, and in the meantime see how to sign on with the class action lawsuit against Sony in case they really did screw this one up.

    Oh dear another silly headline. vg247 is becoming the Daily Mail of the gaming world

    “This site is full of Sony fanboys. It’s a fact. Once you will write something bad about Sony, the thread is starting to hit the fan. I mean seriously…. some of you guys need a doctor, because someone have some serious paranoia problems.”

    But you choose to ignore that Sony articles seem to attract more trolls than articles on any other subject. There are plenty of 360 users or iUsers who love to troll Sony stories (which doesnt appear to bother you). ALL ‘sides’ are as bad as each other, if you don’t see that, maybe youre one of those trolls?

    While every one focus on this ongoing Sony hacks, hackers with more brains are going after all thiose other places with, no doubt, no more (or less) security than sony has, in order to steal our information. They must be laughing their assess off, what with 99% of the people commenting on this story really believeing the bullshit that Sony is lax and behind everyone else on internet security.

    If it is really about exposing lack of security

    1. why are they publishing the senstitve information on the net
    2. why dont they go after other comapnies

    Answer: because this is a childish vendetta by spoilt brats because someone dared hold one of their own to account for his actions. laugh all you want, gamers: one day it will be your bank account. That will wipe the smile from your smug, sanctimonious faces.
