    Sony probing claim hackers stole user information

    Sony probing claim hackers stole user information - Yahoo! News

    LONDON Sony has been hit by a second massive data breach, hackers claim, another potential embarrassment for a company that is struggling to restore its image following the loss of tens of millions of credit card numbers through its PlayStation Network.

    The hackers, who call themselves LulzSec, said they pulled off what they described as an elementary attack to highlight Sony's "disgraceful" security.

    "Every bit of data we took wasn't encrypted. Sony stored over 1,000,000 passwords of its customers in plaintext, which means it's just a matter of taking it," LulzSec said in a statement. "They were asking for it."

    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    I sort of feel bad for Sony. First, they have to endure the hardship of going through an earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear accident. Then, the hackers kick them while they're down three times.

    These hackers have no honor or dignity.

    Hi,

    I agree with you....there have been jerks on the Internet from the minute the Internet was open to the public.... slightly OT: Fourteen years ago, I went on a cruise from Tokyo around the Japanese islands, with a bunch of stops in Japan, to the Russian far east w/ 3 stops in Russia & ending in Alaska with three more stops....I was in the area were the Tsunami was and from the photos I couldn't pick anything out...the Tsunami had so completely obligated the area....

    MY friends in Japan were all lucky not to have been in juried, however it is horrifying what happened. The lose of life is appalling!

    Take care, Jay

    Perhaps not a hoax. I don't know what to say here. How can any huge corporation be this easy to keep hacking into? Sympathy or not for Sony, some questions need to be asked of it.

    I got sick of Lulz a long time ago. This is getting ridiculous.

    I think it was that first attack from Anonymous after the quake that broke the camel's back. Think about it, they got attacked shortly after the worst earthquake in a long time. People were weary, electricity was intermittent, and it was at that time that Anonymous chose to attack to defend some guy (seriously, guys, just support an open source game platform like the Pandora instead of hacking up the PS3 and attacking Sony). Who knows what Anonymous stole during that first attack that facilitated all subsequent attacks.

    Hackers Claim to Have Hit Sony Again

    By REUTERS, June 6, 2011

    http://www.nytimes.com/reuters/2011/...gewanted=print

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Hackers calling themselves Lulz Security said on Monday that they had broken into Sony Corp computer systems again, and posted the results on the Internet.

    The group, which has claimed credit for a prior attack on Sony's systems, posted what appeared to be Sony BMG network maps from a New York city office and what they said was 54 megabytes of Sony developer source code.

    "We are looking into these claims," Jim Kennedy, a spokesman for Sony Pictures Entertainment, said in an email.

    Last week, the group said it had broken into Sony's computer network and accessed information on more than 1 million customers to show the vulnerability of the company's systems. In that attack, the group of hackers, who have managed to keep themselves anonymous, published names, birth dates, street addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and passwords of people who had entered contests promoted by Sony.
