A few days ago, the hacker group LulzSec announced on Twitter that it was planning the “beginning of the end for Sony”. Well, true to their word, it appears that they’ve put into motion whatever plans they had for the company. LulzSec recently published on the site, Pastebin, “We recently broke into SonyPictures.com and compromised over 1,000,000 users’ personal information, including passwords, email addresses, home addresses, dates of birth, and all Sony opt-in data associated with their accounts. Among other things, we also compromised all admin details of Sony Pictures (including passwords) along with 75,000 ‘music codes’ and 3.5 million ‘music coupons’.”
LulzSec mentioned that they didn’t have the resources to copy all the information they found on SonyPictures.com, and that it would have taken several more weeks to do so. That didn’t stop them from uploading a sample of the information which they found though, which is said to contain names, addresses, email addresses, and passwords.
Sony didn’t respond for comment, so this attack hasn’t been confirmed by the company, but LulzSec has been in the news recently for hacking the PBS.com website where they posted news about Tupac being alive. Is this really the beginning of the end for Sony? How many of you still have faith in the company to keep your personal details and passwords secure?
