Sony faces further security breaches on various websites


Sony has finally restored the PlayStation Network and the PlayStation Store is soon to be back up, but that isn’t stopping hackers from giving the company something new to worry about.

Earlier today it was reported that the personal data of 2,000 customers was stolen from a Sony Ericsson website in Canada. In addition, hackers have also obtained information of 8,500 users from a Sony Music Entertainment website in Greece.

The leaked information includes e-mails, passwords and phone numbers. Luckily no credit card details were obtained, and Sony is stating that the websites were hosted externally by third parties rather than being part of its main network.

George Boyd, a spokesman for the company, has also stated that the Sony Music Entertainment website in Indonesia and the Sony website in Thailand have also been hacked.

All four websites have been temporarily shut down while Sony works on and investigates the security breaches.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
