He also sent Sony a message that said something along the lines of "If you want your next console to be secure, hire me."

I haven't heard of the Lik-Sang debacle until now. Very enlightening story.

I hate Sony's mode of operation in general, so every time they get pwned I giggle.

Lik Sang was the place on the internet to buy foreign gaming console items. Everything from custom Street Fighter Xbox controllers, to USB adapters, custom guns, chainsaw controllers, memory cards, DS Lite units, allllll kinds of fun stuff.

There were even items in my shopping cart. I logged in & saw the message on the home page suddenly. Twas a shame.
