Rumor: Sony's Director of Information Security at SOE is a Pirate?
SONY is always whining about piracy and how evil pirates are. But are they better themselves? Not really!
While I browsed the web lately, I read a bit about Bryan S. Blank, the Director of Information Security at SONY Online Entertainment.
Getting a bit more interested I found his private homepage (asdfg.org).

By random searching for interesting links I explored the directory "/uploads/" which contains a lot of illegal hosted, copyrighted music.
So, who are the pirates? We are? You are? Funny to see that SONY's bosses are only normal humans with a bit of normal piracy thoughts as well.
More PlayStation 3 News...
Quite ironic... if those "file downloads" are gone in coming hours/days it will mean someone asked him about this I suppose.
pffft, worst news ever if this is true.
hmm hosting remixes of songs isn't illegal if they are not paid-for songs.. which they're not.
True indeed, if that is all "homebrew" (non-commercial) music then it shouldn't be an issue.
However, according to the contents in the "incoming.rar" I see mp3's from: Clipse - Til The Casket Drops which appears to be commercial.
all security guys were pirates and if not, they were into piracy, they are all hypocrites.
lol.. checked the link, its already down. Must have caused him quite a panic. Found this piece of news quite amusing.
