That's a pretty rough situation for them. It's one thing if an external attack happens. Some former employee who plants a backdoor on a random computer with a dummy account... that's just about impossible to find.

Yup - It happens all the time, usually not so public. Sony has always been fairly behind the game on their security practices though, so it doesn't really surprise me.

It doesn't seem to have affected PSN.  Looks like the threat is to release documents from Sony Pictures (movies), and Sony has had everyone power down their computers and turn off their phones' wifi.

No effect on PSN that I have seen.  Looks like this is corporate stuff so far.

Are their consumer electronics (televisions) not doing well?  I had read their mobile's were hemoraging cash, but that's all.  While overpriced, Sony TVs have been top of the line for a long time.

Their TV unit has actually made money (barely) the last 2 quarters, which is the first time they've shown any profit in over 10 years.  Overall though Sony still reported over a billion dollar loss just for last quarter.
