Sony Hacked Again as Mobile User Passwords Are Dumped Online

By Gary Cutlack on at

Sony's defences have been breached by hackers once more, albeit on a slightly smaller scale this time around than the last, with user accounts belonging to mobile users in Asia acquired and uploaded to the web.

A hacking team going by the name of Null\Crew is claiming responsibility for the attack, saying it's achieved the rather underwhelming scalp of securing login details of 441 Sony Mobile customers from China and Taiwan.

Some of the user names, email addresses and passwords have been posted online to authenticate the claims, while Sony, which acknowledges the hack, has tried to shift the blame away from itself, claiming the user data was actually being hosted by a third-party.

The hackers responsible claim to have "control" of eight Sony servers, so perhaps more is to come. [Telegraph]
