Another Sony Hacking Earlier This Week (Though Smaller)
No, this is not the recent major Playstation network hacking, nor the smaller recent "reset password" hacking. This is another hacking.
TOKYO—So-net Entertainment Corp, an Internet service provider subsidiary of Sony Corp., said an online intruder accessed its customer rewards site earlier this week and stole customers' redeemable gift points worth about $1,225.
The breach at So-net comes several days after Sony resumed service on its PlayStation Network and Sony Online Entertainment online videogame services after a data breach compromised the personal information tied to more than 100 million accounts.
Wow, looks like Sony as a whole is being targeted. They definitely need to have all of their systems carefully audited.
Agreed. Frankly, though, Sony's attitude has not helped, as they largely publicly deny known problems (e.g. claiming the software was patched). They seem to be attracting a lot of hacker wrath as a result of their comments. :/
