It’s been about 12 days since Sony’s last breach, and it looks like they’ll have to reset the intrusion counter. Sony has been reported as hacked again, this time it’s the Sony Picture’s French website. According to the report by Forbes, the website was hacked via an SQL injection vulnerability – the same method used to break into the other Sony websites. Ouch. It’s either Sony didn’t have enough time/resources to patch up all its systems worldwide, or the company didn’t bother.
This time, the hackers claimed they gained access to 177,000 emails, and exposed the email addresses of 70 users as proof of their intrusion. But the hackers who accomplished the attack called themselves grey-hat hackers and said they did it just to get Sony to buck up on its security. “It is not my goal to destroy. I want to help Sony.” Well, there’s no word on what Sony’s next move will be, but let’s hope it’s going to be longer than 12 days before another breach occurs.
