Sony Fined £250K In Britain Over 2011 PlayStation Network Hacking Fiasco

Quotre:
"Sony Computer Entertainment Europe was fined today by the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office for “serious breach of the Data Protection Act.” The £250,000 ($395,000) penalty stems from the April 2011 incident that saw the Sony PlayStation Network Platform hacked and the personal information of millions of customers compromised. The ICO said its investigation determined that the attack “could have been prevented if the software had been up-to-date” and said “technical developments also meant passwords were not secure.” The April 2011 fiasco shut down the PlayStation Network for more than a month as the company scrambled to respond. Sony Computer Entertainment Europe said of today’s ICO ruling that it “strongly disagreed” and planned to appeal. "

As always, where does that 250k go? Dishing out bonus's and the such like to some official.

Here's a whacked idea, why not use the money to employ people to make sure that Sony have secured the data.

We all know where it won't be going-to the actual victims who had their information compromised.
