Sony hacked again

Written by Nick Farell


It never rains but it pours
Sony has had to shut down a website set up to help affected by April's massive data breach after it turned out to have a security hole.

Ironically the site had been designed to help 77 million users of its PlayStation Network reset their passwords after finding another security weakness. Sony warned customers on its PlayStation website, but it is another low point for the outfit which had to turn off its network for a month to fix huge security flaws.

Sony spokesman Dan Race said the company found the security hole on a webpage that could potentially allow the hackers who had breached personal data from users in April to access their accounts using the data they had stolen.

In otherwords since they had the victim's email and birth date from the earlier hack they could potentially get access to your account. Sony took down the PlayStation Network password reset page, as well as that of its Qriocity music service. It has since fixed the problem and will bring the pages back up shortly.
