Fictional spokesperson for Sony accidentally retweets PS3 hack code

When news came out that Sony's PlayStation 3 game console was hacked into by hacker GeoHotz, it sent everyone including Sony, into a frenzy.

Whilst Sony has been successful in stopping the spread of the code thus far, it was conveniently broadcasted to the world again – this time via Twitter.

Just weeks ago, hacker GeoHotz released the code to jailbreak Sony's PlayStation 3 console, online.

Since the leak, Sony has been working hard to contain the spread of the code, and in what seemed like a victorious end to the episode, had successfully been awarded a temporary restraining order against GeoHotz himself.

This prevented the hacker from distributing the code online, and also sent out a stern warning to potential hackers.

Just today though, a spokesperson for Sony was spotted re-Tweeting the code on his Twitter page.

Kevin Butler, a fictional spokesperson for Sony, re-Tweeted the code from user 'evixa', an added his own quibble, saying "Lemme guess… you sank my battleship?"

Just when it seemed that everything was coming to an end, this is yet another embarrassing smack in the face for Sony.
