Sony's Servers In Thailand Hacked Again

Sony's Servers In Thailand Hacked Again

The recent hack is announced to be unrelated to what has been attracting the attention of the entire world for the last few weeks, but proves that the company is still too vulnerable to be respected enough by its customers.

Insecurity firm F-Secure, based in Finland, has found out another flaw on Sony’s servers, which appeared to be hacked again. The company has kicked the slightly apologetic Sony which has been down for the last month: F-Secure managed to unearth some phishing scheme working on Sony’s server in Thailand. Meanwhile, this is considered to be an insignificant threat if compared to the PSN outage of the recent month.

The company hurried to claim that the hack was unrelated to the mammoth attempt which led to the outage of PlayStation Network for all of its users. Aside from being offline for over a month, 70 million users faced the fact of their credit card details and personal information leak.

Now Finnish firm F-Secure discovered a phishing site hosted on Sony's servers. The website in question looks quite authentic, but seems to be designed with the sole purpose to scrape Italian credit card details via a CartaSi portal. Meanwhile, the URL of the online service is most definitely on hdworld.sony.co.th, which can only mean that the international giant has been hacked again. However, in this case the chances are that the server is not that important, or at least that’s what insecurity company said when providing the public with the screen shots. F-Secure has immediately banned the URL for its own users and has sent a notification to Sony.

In the meantime, Sony is slowly recovering from the recent events, and is desperately trying to retain its consumers and partners, swearing that now its servers are completely secure. Sony has even launched a “Welcome Back” program, offering different bonuses and discounts for its loyal users. However, as we can see from the latest news, the claims of security seem to be not 100% true. Although the hack itself might be not very harmful, and of course not that monumental as the historic attack of which Anonymous was initially blamed, it still proves that the things are still not perfect with Sony. This might make many of its users have second thoughts about coming back to the company.

moviefreak24 avatarWell it's good that this firm found out about this hack, but it also seems that people are focussing too much on Sony. Nobody's servers are 100% safe, I'm not a computer genius but I know that's the way it is, end of story. I don't think too many people will be leaving Sony (for Microsoft or whatever) When I look at my PSN buddy list, they're all still there.. Of course that's only a couple of people, but I think that's pretty much the way it is overall. Sony offers a good online service for absolutely no cost, users know that..

No avatarThis should have been covered in their internal firewall system, atleast i hope, as a sony customer despite their negligence in this area... I will stick with my humorous imagination and pretend it wasn't an apache web server exploit, and was a generic IIS exploit from 1998.

The real issue is how that website got there in the first place, not the possibility of obtaining any information, though...

Tparsons5150 avatarI'll be happy when the PlayStation Store returns. I could care less about their servers in 3rd world countries being hacked.

And I've yet to hear any news about anyones credit card # or personal info being used in some harmful way since PSN went down so I really don't see the big deal, obviously Sony will continue to improve thing to ensure it won't happen again, if not for customers for the benefit of their own pocket book.

menahunie avatarWell Sony has posted a 2.99 billion loss. Things are this has to be a formal cyber attack and allot of people are going to go down for this. Allot of Hacking of this type usually is helped by people inside of a company. Either motivated by money or blackmail. I believe allot more is going on that is being publicly admitted by Sony and people in the know. If this was just a criminal hack to just get financial data we all would have heard who did it by now; BUT the mystery is still going on??
That hacker group Anonymous when blamed came out very quickly claiming they had nothing to do with this.
Given the amounts of money being lost and if you were to even consider entering the Twilight Zone over this - people could disappear...

bubfred72 avatarWell if you guys haven`t heard Lockheed Martin got hacked recently! And Xbox got hack way long time ago! And hacking a system is different than hacking a Server network! So you should base opinions on the quality of the systems them selves! With that said then I guess Sony is still way ahead of the rest! Go Sony! By the way I have all the systems you can have except Neo Geo! Thx

trialNerror avatarI heard somewhere in the past the PS2 was never hacked. Maybe that's a myth, but I also don't recall ever seeing any news stories about it, either.

This isn't Sony's fault. It's people that need to stop playing with their consoles internals all day long. Why can't they just leave well enough alone? "Because they can", yeah, they can, they do, and then they go and f*** it up for everyone else that's just trying to enjoy some video gaming entertainment. You might think you're badass for hacking something but you're just pissing off a huge crowd of other users. This Thailand hack will probably push back the re-launch date of the PS Store by another couple weeks. I want whoever fault this is head on a silver platter.
