    The real deal here isn’t that Sony got hacked, or that it turns out their security was mostly a cardboard box with “Firewall” written on it in crayon. What’s caught the baleful congressional eye is that fact that Sony waited a week before telling anyone. You know, just long enough for the data thieves to decrypt and sell their loot to the Russian mob and Chinese gold farmers. Enjoy your new World of Warcraft subscription!
