Do you have any news sources for that?

According to Bitmob, the Sony PSN servers were useing the latest patched version of Apache web-server software. Bitmob also points out that the security expert that testified to Congress about PSN being unpatched determined that by reading news reports.

I've seen multiple sources about this.

Almost all of the PSN and playstation webservers were running modern patched Apache servers, just like Bitmob said.

A very old server from the PSU era (2001ish) that existed prior to the PSN's formation still existed on their network and was running an old version of apache. This server was absolutely NOT the source of the primary breached data. It was breached however, and some details about a very old survey filled out by about 5000ish people back in 2001 were leaked to the web from it.

But people keep confusing the two. There were at least 2, most likely 3 separate breaches of various PSN resources over that week. Anonymous was crawling all over the network looking for every breach they could find.

Here's the link about their old server.
