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.

So Sony didn't get hacked, they found an issue and fixed the problem. Better headline would of been "Sony could of been hacked again."

What COULD HAVE been even better is for you to learn English before splitting hairs.

Don't have a PS3 or 360 and honesty I dont care but it's nice to know that your personal info these days is stolen and used without you knowing and you can never sue these Company's for anything.
Corporations at there best. On another note, Purchased a PSP 3000 ONLY cuz I could hack it and to be honest I love it know. So there, hacking sometimes does account for Revenue and not Loss of sales. :-)
