LulzSec Hacks Sony Again
LulzSec is well known for hacking several times Sony’s websites. They did it once more – for the sixth time – this time releasing 54MB of Sony Computer Entertainment Developer Network source code and maps of Sony BMG’s internal network.
Sowngae 2 can be found on PirateBay, just as Sownage 1 was posted no more than a week ago under the same group. During this month, Lulzsec compromised Sony’s database containing personal information of over 1.000.000 users, including their passwords, e-mail addresses, home addresses, dates of birth and all Sony opt-in data associated with their accounts.
This is what the group had to say on its posting from Pirate Bay:
Konichiwa from LulzSec, Sony bastards!
We’ve recently bought a copy of this great new game called ‘Hackers vs Sony’, but we’re unable to play it online due to PSN being obliterated. So we decided to play offline mode for a while and got quite a few trophies.
Our latest goal is “Hack Sony 5 Times”, so please find enclosed our 5th Sony hack. Enjoy this 54MB collection of SVN Sony Developer source code,” it said in a press release.
Enjoy this 54MB collection of SVN Sony Developer source code. That’s hackers 16, Sony 0. Your move!
ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: HACK SONY 6 TIMES! Oh damn, we just did it again, please also find enclosed internal network maps of Sony BMG.
This is the same team that stole The X-Factor’s contestant database from Fox.com earlier this month and hacked PBS.
Back in April Sony shut down its PlayStation Network due to similar acts of aggression.
