Breaking: Sony Networks Hacked Again?

The BBC is reporting that another Sony online property has had it's
security breached and more than a million customers details accessed
from an unencrypted store.

This is getting pretty embarrassing for Sony coming as it does within
days of the company's promise to get it's Playstation Network back
online worldwide in the next few days.

I'm having a hard time feeling sorry for Sony though, a lot of this
damage seems to be the result of it's own actions, some very dodgy
business processes and some unfeasibly lax security for a company of
such standing.

Beggars the question about the habits of the other big online stores
that we allow access to our personal data. If one company can be this
easily targeted, what about the others?
