"Sony’s Shinji Hasejima, Sony’s CIO, told Sony’s apologetic news
conference that the attack was based on a “known vulnerability” in the
non-specified Web application server platform used in the PSN. However,
he declined to stipulate what platform/s were used or what vulnerability
was exploited, on the basis that disclosure might expose other users to
attack."

Guess that they forgot to patch their Apache web server. ;-)
