Again?! Hackers Break Into Sony Servers And Post Customer Info

Again?! Hackers Break Into Sony Servers And Post Customer Info

This is getting to be a bit ridiculous. 

A hacker group that goes by the name LulzSec broke into servers that run Sony Picture Entertainment websites. The group managed to obtain names, birth dates, addresses, e-mails, phone numbers, and passwords of thousands of customers that have entered Sony contests. 

LulzSec, the group responsible for recent cyber attacks on PBS and Fox.com, released a statement saying: "From a single injection, we accessed EVERYTHING. Why do you put such faith in a company that allows it self to become open to these simple attacks?" 

This attack is the the most recent in a long string of hacks Sony has suffered since hackers broke into the PlayStation Network and Qriocity accounts and accessed the personal information of over 77 million users. 

Sony released a statement saying it was investigating the LulzSec breach.
