hypnosec (2231454) writes "Hackers’ hot favourite victim Sony Corp. has won an award at the Black Hat conference held in Las Vegas this week. However, much to the embarrassment of the company, the award it nailed was in the category of the “Epic Fail” of the year. The Pwnie award, which is kind of close being an Oscar equivalent in the hackers-community, awarded this ‘honour’ to Sony following the series of hack attacks it was subjected to a few months back, which saw the company’s PlayStation and PC Gaming Networks, as well as many other services suffering heavily through the hands of cyber criminals."
