With stories of spying and security breaches all over the news, it seems like...
Sony just can not catch a break. After repeated network breach events over the last two months that have exposed the account details of millions of Sony customers, the hacker collective known as LulzSec claims to have done it yet again.
“We are looking into these claims,” Jim Kennedy, executive vice president of Global Communications for Sony Pictures Entertainment, said in a statement.
The group claims to have hacked Sony Pictures, Sony Entertainment, Sony BMG and compromised sensitive data for over one million customers, as well as gaining access to admin passwords, music “codes” and “coupons”.
“We recently broke into SonyPictures.com and compromised over 1,000,000 users’ personal information, including passwords, email addresses, home addresses, dates of birth, and all Sony opt-in data associated with their accounts. Among other things, we also compromised all admin details of Sony Pictures (including passwords) along with 75,000 “music codes” and 3.5 million “music coupons”,” the group’s informal press release states
