Sony says protecting content made it hackers' target

(Reuters) - Sony Corp believes it was targeted by hackers because it tried to protect its intellectual property, CEO Howard Stringer told a shareholders' meeting at which he sidestepped a call for him to step down over the incident.

No Sony got hacked because they were the easiest target. If Microsoft did nothing to protect user content I'd assume they'd get hacked as it'd be easier for the hackers.

Hackers seems to 'like' Sony :) the reason is not important at this stage. For their customers sake, Sony should improve security...
