Sony Hit with New Cyber Attacks

By The Atlantic Wire

In early May, Sony was hit with a hack that took down the Playstation Network and exposed some 77 million users' personal and credit card information. The massive security breach was the work of the hacking group Anonymous. While Sony has been working to recover in wake of the devastating hack, the company found itself victim to yet another round of cyber attacks.


The first attack was rather minor and involved a breach in the web server that hosts Sony's Thai site. As reported by the security firm F-Secure today, the official homepage of Sony Thailand is being used to host a phishing site for an Italian credit card company. "Basically this means that Sony has been hacked," writes F-Secure. The other attack is more malicious. About 100,000 yen ($1,225) was stolen from Sony customer accounts in Japan, reports Reuters.
