Sony, New attack on its network services
June 3, 2011.- A group of hackers called LulzSec claimed the attack on Thursday, which affected the personal information of more than one million customers of Sony.
The group said through a statement that “From a single operation, we can access to everything” and “Why do you put such faith in a company that allows itself to become open to these simple attacks?” they ask, saying that the data also wasn’t encrypted.
They also claim “have entered into a database that includes unencrypted passwords, names, addresses and dates of birth of users.”
Representatives of Sony confirmed that “they are investigating the statement made by the hackers on the theft of a million users’ passwords. A group of hackers calling itself LulzSec said jeopardized the personal information, including passwords, email addresses, phone numbers, addresses, dates of birth, and Sony all data related to their accounts.”
Sony was finally able to restore its PSN services today after over a month of darkness. Unfortunately, this new development once again draws attention to what appears to be a continuously failing security system.
