Sony's Shoddy Security: Was It Inevitable That the PSN Would Be Attacked?

Check out this story about testimony on the PSN break-in.  It sounds like the technological equivalent of buying a lot of expensive stuff for your house, but moving into a highly visible, poorly built home, with lots of windows, no curtains, and leaving doors unlocked.

When I read about it, I think, "Wow, that would be a crafty plan to catch hackers, like those bait cars the Police set up to catch car thieves."  But it's not a crafty plan.  It's apathy at best and incompetence at worst.  Firewalls are good, m'kay?

I won't waste your time regurgitating the article, just check it out.
