This is, of course, assuming that the good people at the Beyond3D forums, et al - on which the refutations I'm seeing re: the Sony/Apache claims are based - were able to and in fact did check the Apache versions on every Sony server that communicates with the PS3.
So far, I'm seeing one link to one Google cache of one playstation.net server running Apache 2.2.17. A few purported logs are also floating around showing the same information side-by-side with several servers running 2.2.11, from 2008 (logs, unfortunately, can be easily spoofed, so little help there). At most, the Google cache which seems to be the current source cited as proof for refutation shows that one of Sony's servers was up to date.
Further complicating matters is the fact that the author of the Bitmob post which cites the Beyond3D forumer's research which turned up one playstation.net server running 2.2.17 is himself a member of those same forums and has been since 2005. He makes no secret of this fact, but this nonetheless leads to the possibility of confirmation bias through community solidarity, especially since his post history there re: the Sony breaches has been fairly solidly pro-Sony.
