Login Accounts on Sony BMG Greece Site Compromised
Well we participate on the war against Sony. lol
Security woes continue to plague the Sony Corporation, this time the latest attack stems from their Greece based website SonyMusic.gr. The attack has compromized the logins and passwords of thousands of customers. However, this hack wasn't nearly as sophisticated as the PSN hacks. It appears the hacker utilized an automated SQL injection tool, which requires more patience than skill.
It's the security nightmare that just won't end, and right now there's got to be plenty of Sony executives beginning to wish someone would pinch them already. After taking quite a PR and financial beating over the PSN breach, now the Greek site of Sony BMG has been hacked and the account info of thousands of users has been posted online. According to the Sophos blog Naked Security, the attack does not appear to have been particularly sophisticated and was carried out using an automated SQL injection tool that demands more patience than skill. While the data dump reveals the usernames, real names, and email addresses of registered SonyMusic.gr customers, other fields (including passwords and telephone numbers) are either empty or contain fake data -- suggesting the hack was not entirely successful. Here's hoping Sony takes this as an opportunity to seriously baton down those security hatches.
