hypnosec writes "Raynaldo Rivera has pleaded guilty at the US District Court for the Central District of California to hacking the Sony Pictures Entertainment website in May 2011. The 20-year-old in his plea agreement revealed that he joined Lulzsec in May of last year in a bid to help the hacking collective carry out cyberattacks on governments and businesses. Rivera, who surrendered to the FBI on August 28 this year, admitted that he was the one who launched an SQL injection attack against sonypictures.com that enabled him to extract confidential information from the website's database."

    When does Sony go to jail, for developing rookits [wikipedia.org]? I bet that affected people on a much larger scale. What about the false advertising regarding the OtherOS feature, which was removed via an updater/backdoor?

    Sony screws its customers with DRM and anti-features and attacks software developers. I find it hard to feel sorry for them.
