Sony website and customer accounts hit with new wave of attacks

SHARE:




Sony just can't seem to catch a break. After locking down and overhauling its online services due to a cyber attack that revealed the personal information of over 100 million account holders — and fixing a snafu in its password reset system — Sony is under the gun once again. Both a major Sony homepage and Sony's Japanese internet service division have now been victimized.
According to a warning from security firm F-Secure, Sony's Thai website was hacked and used to trick unsuspecting visitors into handing over personal information to a fraudulent Italian credit card company. Sony was notified of the unauthorized activity and is taking action to rectify the problem. On a much more serious note, Sony's Japan-based So-Net internet was reportedly breached, with the hackers making off with over 100,000 yen (roughly $1,200) of account holder funds. The company is currently investigating that breach, but has reportedly found no evidence that any personal information was obtained by the attackers.
At this time, it doesn't appear that the attacks are directly connected to the network breach that brought the PlayStation Network and Sony Online Entertainment (which just came back online today) to a halt late last month. However, Sony is most definitely in the public eye, as customers begin to question what people and services should have access to their vital information.
