Sony has been a victim of hacks and stolen data the past recent years sadly. They are a  wonderful gaming company in my opinion  but not exactly a good company on the security end. Not only were the files themselves stored in a poorly named “Password” folder, the files themselves were named exactly what purpose they served such as “Facebook login Password.” It should also be noted that pretty much every Sony Pictures social media account was compromised because of this and the Sony stock will surely suffer a damaging blow from this. With hacking and exploiting on the rise, it’s only a matter of time before another big name company or… Sony again… has serious information leaked out.
