Sony is invaded ten major consequences of the incident: Or become that declines in the turning point
Sony PlayStation network, Qriocity music service and Sony’s online amusement Sony Online Entertainment Game serve, have one suffer attack of hacker not escaping by luck, the whole world exceed influence by this incident by 100 million users. Sony claims, the credit card data stolen have already been crossed and has encrypted dealing with, but personal information has not been encrypted, this upsets a lot of users anything will happen next.
To Sony, it is recovery PlayStation network and Qriocity music service next. However, as to consumers, even Sony comes to say, there will be more trouble, apology and anxious in future several months. Invading the incident will bring far-reaching influence to Sony and the whole game on line trade this time, particularly, may produce ten major consequences.
1.Does Sony decline in game trade?
, invasion, Sony relied on PlayStation 3 game machine to take cities and seize territory at the market of game in the intersection of PlayStation and network, let Nintendo and Microsoft both nervous endlessly for a time. However, are exerted a tremendous influence in business in PlayStation network in game trade of Sony after invasion, it may be difficult to sweep the haze over the next several years.
2. Is the whole game on line damaged?
Though it is for Sony PlayStation network to invade the incident this time, however, it will possibly influence the market of whole game on line. A lot of users are afraid similar such data suffer loss by theft the incident recur, and cause huge losses to oneself, so, they may choose to give up the products of Sony, and choose Xbox Live game service of Microsoft; But they may in Microsoft Xbox Live game even connect and are serve and does not use again either. Unless whole the intersection of game on line and trade appear obvious improvement, otherwise afraid user of safety problem may can hope and halt still.
3.Is individual difficult to dispel to threaten in several months safely?
Sony claims, so far, the whole world has not found yet the identity theft incident correlated with invading the incident this time happens. However, this company shows, it will help users to apply for identity theft and take precautions against that serve, in order to prevent the occurrence of such a thing. Certainly, to apply for this kind of service is always better than not to apply. However, it shows, within future several months, personal safety problems will be all difficult to dispel.
4.Safe the alarm sounds continuously
PlayStation network beaten the safe alarm bell to the masses of users by the invading incident. Under normal conditions, people always think Microsoft and Windows system will cause the safety problem. However, this time invasion incident shows in Sony’s experience: There are places for network link, exist on the issue that safe. It is very possible, will invade the incident and will be begun to ponder deeply by users this time, how should they share personal information, and how to undertake the risk done like this.
5.The security firm will rise
Though safe trade pays close attention the target is mainly to protect desk-top computer and mobile phone set, however, if security firm utilizes PlayStation network to be invaded the incident and made an issue, put out the new trick, it is not at all surprising too. Can predict, some insightful security firms will put out and help users to protect the brand-new solution of personal information.
6.Sony will continue becoming and attacking the target
The disaster of Sony, Microsoft or supplier of any other games on line is far from being over. Since hackers can already succeed in invading the defensive system of Sony, have stolen users’ personal secrets information, they may know and continue doing it in this way. Though in this case, Sony has already got the help of FBI investigator, however, this is not yet enough to prevent the ill-intentioned hacker from implementing the attack in the future. One profit, lure hacker these into constantly again and three try.
7.Microsoft or thereby making an issue
Microsoft may regard PlayStation web invasion incident as a chance that oneself develops too. At first, Microsoft may raise the safety that his Xbox Live game serve, guarantees such a thing will not happen in oneself on one’s body. Secondly, to no longer believing in the users of Sony, Microsoft may also become they safest ” harbor of refuge ” in the heart . Within future several months, Microsoft is expected to utilize trouble of Sony to make an issue, seize the chance to improve one’s own reputation and market share.
8. More surprising details are made known publicly
Though Sony does not seem so candid when its service is attacked by the hacker at the very beginning, but this company has already begun to announce the detail of invading the incident this time to the outside slowly after all. Within future several months, as Sony begins to lick and lick one’s own wound, more surprising details will be made known publicly. Unfortunately, these details may seem very ear-piercing to user of PlayStation network, difficult to accept. Like each member in the technological trade, Sony needs to spend several months and can totally understand essence and incidence of invading the incident this time too.
9.Sony administration and supervision authorities will send the violent earthquake
At all strange, large-scale the intersection of security and the intersection of invasion and incident let a lot of critic call upon Howard – the intersection of Sri Lankan and Ginger Howard Stringer, CEO of Sony, loudly already so Step down from the stage. They claim this the intersection of Sri Lankan and the last straw of Ginger, before this, he had already made several serious mistakes in Sony. Their view is really difficult to refute. Under normal conditions, any enterprise meets so large-scale a security invasion incident, someone will all be changed. This incident made people feel shocked most, the basic framework of network of Sony collapses at the first blow so. Not merely responsible for the safe IT high tube specifically, even top leader of the company should pack up and quit and go away. Consider the enormous trouble that Howard falls into because of invading the incident this time, he may be forced to step down from the stage.
10.Serve and return to normal, the incident is forgotten
PlayStation web invasion incident has a possible result: Serve and return to normal, the incident is forgotten. Now, it is fairly proper that Sony deals with the method to invade incident, increasingly much information has already been made known publicly. In protecting the important data, Sony seems to do well too. If Sony continues leading according to the accurate set pattern, public attention transfers to other things, then PlayStation network and Qriocity music service may be returned to them the normal state before invasion. This incident went over at last, even was forgotten, seemed not to happen to be too the same.
