LAS VEGAS: Japanese entertainment titan Sony had the dubious honor of winning a "Most Epic Fail" award at a prestigious Black Hat gathering of computer security professions in Las Vegas.
Sony and hacked computer security powerhouse RSA were mockingly honored with Pwnies, annual awards named in a reference to geek slang for "owning" or totally dominating an opponent.
"After learning the hard way that their PlayStation Network was about as porous as air, Sony had to shut it down for over two months to rebuild it from scratch," Pwnie judges said of the winning choice.
"In doing so, they made everyone from your eight-year old cousin to your barber learn about the importance of security," they continued. "Hooray for us, sorry Sony shareholders."
