Sony's Banks Confident Against Hackers

The PSN was hacked. Then Sony Online Entertainment. Then Sony Thailand's site, Sony's internet provider So-Net, Sony Music Indonesia, Sony Music Greece, Sony Ericsson's Eshop and Sony BMG Japan. But Sony's banking and insurance arms? They're not worried.

According to Sony Financial Holdings, their systems are different from the ones that were hacked. A spokesperson told Asahi, "We are not affected (by the attacks) because we manage our networks with highly safe systems developed specifically for financial services."

Isn't this inviting trouble, and wasn't the PlayStation 3 supposed to be unhackable?
