Another hack at Sony

2011-06-04 22:10

London - A hacker claims to have stolen names and passwords belonging to 120 users of Sony Europe's website and published them to the internet.

It's the latest in a series of attacks which have hammered the electronics multinational.

Security researchers have counted about a dozen breaches since the beginning of this year, including two particularly serious ones which exposed 100 millions users' personal details.

The latest attack was claimed by "Idahc", who self-identifies as a Lebanese hacker. The Associated Press has been able to verify several of the exposed names.

A US-based spokesperson for Sony Corp has not returned an e-mail seeking comment.

The website allegedly hacked into was down for "scheduled maintenance" on Saturday.

    I'm sure this will all cease if Sony allows people to install Linux on their consoles again. Why control your users?
