Default Sony Hacked... Again.

We've just received numerous tips that Lulz Security has broken into SonyPictures.com, where it claims to have stolen the personal information of over 1,000,000 users -- all stored (disgracefully) in plain text format. Lulz claims the heist was performed with a simple SQL injection -- just like we saw the last time around. A portion of the group's exploit is posted online in a RAR file, which contains over 50,000 email / password combos of unfortunate users. We've downloaded this file (at our own risk, mind you) and can verify these sensitive bits are now in the wild, though it remains unclear if what's published matches reality. In addition to user information, the group has blurted out over 20,000 Sony music coupons, and the admin database (including email addresses and passwords) for BMG Belgium employees. Fresh off the heels of the PlayStation Network restoration, we're guessing the fine folks in Sony's IT department are now surviving solely on adrenaline shots.
Set sail for fail!

Would explain why one of my emails has been recently receiving 10+ scam emails a day... I used that email for a faulty product resolution with Sony... Never got resolved either...

Glad to see it. They deserve this for the next 10 years.

Considering the way they have treated their customers ... it doesn't bother me at all. Funny shit! :)

It was SonyPictures.com I don't think it was this hack that caused that. Also Twitter
