Sony is having a rough time trying to keep the PlayStation 3 secure, and the company seems intent on policing the entirety of the Internet to stop the spread of the tools and information needed to hack the device. This can be hard to do when your own faux spokesperson decides to retweet one of the offending series of letters and numbers in their entirety online.
Twitter user @exiva, aka Travis La Marr, sent the code to “Kevin Butler,” Sony’s humorous take on a corporate spokesman. Whoever is running the Twitter account didn’t recognize the relevance of the numbers and simply retweeted them with a joke about Battleship. The results are brilliant.
