LXer: Security Expert: Sony Knew Its Software Was Obsolete Months Before PSN Breach

Published at LXer:

According to Spafford, security experts monitoring open Internet forums learned months ago that Sony was using outdated versions of the Apache Web server software, which "was unpatched and had no firewall installed." The issue was "reported in an open forum monitored by Sony employees" two to three months prior to the recent security breaches, said Spafford.
