LulzSec, also known as the Lulz Boat, stole the personal information of more than 1 million Sony users. Moreover, the compromised data was posted on The Pirate Bay, including passwords, e-mails, full names, home addresses, and more, so that the entire world could see it.
Poor Sony continues taking a beating within the recent months, with one more security breach added to the many the company has faced since April 20th, when the hackers broke into its PlayStation Network.
Just a few days ago, the entertainment corporation managed to fully restore its PlayStation Network, but today other hackers under the guise of Lulzsec, also known as the Lulz Boat, attacked Sony Pictures.com, which resulted in the yet another leak of more than 1,000,000 users’ personal data, including passwords, e-mails, full names, dates of birth, home addresses, and other information associated with their accounts.
According to the hacker group, apart from users’ personal information, they have also stolen all admin details of Sony Pictures, including their passwords, as well as 75,000 music codes and 3,500,000 music coupons. Lulzsec, aka Lulz Boat, is a group responsible for stealing The X-Factor’s contestant database from Fox.com a month ago, as well as for the recent hacking of PBS, which occurred in respond to a Frontline WikiLeaks Documentary it believed maligned the “whistle blower” website.
Just as in the case of the X Factor imbroglio, the group uploaded the information stolen from Sony on the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker website The Pirate Bay. Lulzsec announced that the hack of the multinational corporation was a result of simple SQL injection, which is basically the most primitive and wide-spread vulnerability letting the intruders access everything.
Lulzsec added that unfortunately all the information they compromised was not encrypted. In other words, the company simply stored more than a million of its customers’ passwords in plain text, so it was just a matter of taking it. Hackers called this “disgraceful and insecure”, saying that Sony were almost asking for the hack. Currently the Lulz security website is offline due to a DDoS attack.

|Hey LulzSec, why not go after the governments, organisations and politicians pushing the "three strikes" or other anti-file sharing legislation?|
|Why doesn't some one? ET? ask these azzholes why they are doing this?|
Why release the personal information of people like you and I to the world to be exploited?
I don't like Sony; but screwing over the average person isn't good. They now have Government after then and If I were them and a little paranoid, hear the pitty patter of running feet on their roof. Sushi anyone Yakuza style?
|lol just got a msg @ xfire that the NL and BE acound data is @ piratebay xD lol ! tnkx for the post/read and PM @ xfire|
|If I was entering my details on PSN I would give out fake details and never would I spend money on there. Not that I plan to use to PSN now or any time in the future!!|
|again this is getting serious it would be cheaper if sony just hired some C.I.A agents to pump a couple of caps in these guys asses and there you have it|
job done!!! millions of pounds or Dorrars saved.
lets face it if it was a breach of U.S.A national security like the pentagon that got HACKED then these guys would already be in jail probably i'm guessing its someone within sony thats leaving a known breach in their many firewalls lets see what happens now
|Lets face it, sony is all about the buck. It dont give a shit about the ppl that support them. If they did care about the ppl they would have spent just a little bit of the billions they make to protect the info they have on there systems. come on at least they published the fact they stoled it, instead of just stealing your info. The ones you should be made at is sony. Shows how much they care about the hand that feeds them to just leave it all unprotected like that and after all the other attacks.....make me want to go buy a sony product and register it. way to go sony.|
|I agree with #1trojanmouse, dont understand why these hackgroups keep f****** with sony its getting old. I heard nintendo was also hacked,whats the point really. Use your skills for something good thats going to benefit people.|
|i agree with MadVillain, n trojanmouse piss on the gov. or something. hell id go for the admin passwords not normal peoples passwords|

|SONY make it belive|
|Can't these idiots just leave Sony alone? They're acting like Sony is a joke but I bet you there are a lot more companies that store their info like this. Go hack and expose THEM. These people might be good at hacking (and might think they're tough because of that) but I bet you they aren't the types that could handle a little 'hard time', if you know what I mean. They should find the ones responsible and put them in jail. Have someone 'hack' their backdoor LoL|
|getting old, move on|

|Dudes you seem to be so clever why dont you do some thing usefull.I haven't upset you personaly but you are destroying my fun on the ps3 network.|
Do some thing use full and try and track down all those peadofiles you obviously have the know how.
|why dnt they hckk xbox or sum thing els ps3 got boring already psn is lame. all bout xbox live gota pay to play lol but still leave sony aloneeeeeeeeeeeeee go mess up the wiiii go crash networks.. these are sum nerdy old men hacking the same things over n over change it up a bit|
|i agree with MadVillain and trojanmouse piss on the government screw with their sh*t|
|This is getting repetitious, tedious, and as #14 said there's a LOT of multi-million/billion dollar companies that store information the same way. It's not just Sony that has data out in the open, but Sony sure is taking an ass kicking this year. I'm not going to stop playing PS3 or stop using the PSN because I'm sure as hell am not going to "pay to play" a bunch of retarded regurgitated first person shooters on Live (c'mon, you gotta admit Xbox only has FPS games that are popular - Halo, Gears of War, and the RPG Fable - but PS3 has Resistance, Killzone, WKC, and more [ModNation, LBP, God of War, Heavenly Sword, etc.]) Okay I'm way the hell off topic. Sorry. What's starting to get more annoying is people are thinking this is another PSN attack when it's clear as day in the article it's Sony Pictures. To those who are pissing your pants about PSN and saying you'll never use it or ever go back to it, that's fixed now. This is completely different servers; completely different names and information. Trust me I downloaded it (with a VPN of course) to see if my shit was on the list and it wasn't, so neither is your PSN stuff. If you watch Wheel of Fortune or something and had a Sony Pictures account to play their at home thing, then yeah, your stuff has been compromised.|

|Hack these nuts.Leave the ps3 alone try xbox or wii.....Sony gave me 4 games free 2 for the ps3 and two for psp.|
|Has anyone ever thought that the hackers doing this, are either sony themselves to get government kudos or government themselves to get public support for the nasty bills they want to pass to enslave us more|
|@tonymengela: No I haven't and frankly I find it a silly idea. It is much more likely that it is a competitor, but I don't even think that is the case..|
|@ moviefreak24 It happens all the time, how do you think Hitler came into power, this is an age old tactic. Create a problem to fight the problem, others take the blame = money generated in the long term and the people you dont want around any more get taken out by others while you reap the rewards.|
|Looks like some kind of cyber hackers warfare has increased ALLOT. Now the IMF is saying they have been attacked.|
You have to remember these are the one's we hear about; what about all the others we don't hear about?
Thing is why has no finger been pointed to where this is coming from. Is it because they may have a red star and nuclear weapons?
Could it be from the Ukraine - mob activity?
Or how about the Al-Qaeda? Hmmmm the world has seemed to have pissed off these animals for years and allot of them went to western schools.. How about Iran?
They have those power hungry mulas and nut case president. Hmmmm They are the biggest printer of counterfeit U.S. Currency in the world as well as China YES China also prints counterfeit U.S. Currency as other hostile governments.. BUT they are at the top of the list.
Then you have all the drug cartels as well...
The group fingered for the Sony hacks are in for allot of hurt; I bet they are starting to find a hole and crawl into it.
As for the yaaaaa hack the government instead; thing is they have MIB men in black that will come and remove you from this mortal coil.
|Food for thought Hmmmm.|

|They keep targeting Sony because Sony is public enemy no. 1 in private firms against internet freedom and P2P sharing. Can you say Cinavia protection? To hell with Sony. If it was up to them and the RIAA Mafia this site and forum wouldn't exist. Also as has been stated if the hackers were trying to hurt average people they would steal the info not post it publicly. And how idiotic would it be to compromise our natural security as a few of you have suggested. We don't want the country brought down--just a few heavy handed assholes to back off. Down with Sony. Keep Information free. Long Live the Resistance!|

|Their also hacking sony because sony is making it easy. They just "updated", and they didn't think about encrypting information.. Really? I'm no network/programming genius, but that really does seem like give'n. Sony needs to fire who ever they hired, and get a real team to go in, and tell them what they need to do. Because who ever is leading it up right now sucks.|

|Sometimes I wonder why ppl can't get it.|
You like sony ? hate xbox or wii (whatever)... that's fine.
But let's face it - SONY is making billions of $ PA worldwide.
It's arguably one of the biggest entertainment companies in the world.
Now ... I haven't heard other top brands being hacked as often as Sony, not now not ever.
This may mean that hacking groups are trying to destroy Sony to prove something (none is safe these days)
or ... as it is IMHO - SONY HAS REALLY WEAK SECURITY. A company of such influence on the market simply
can't just put our money to their pockets and that's it ... it has to have TOP security .... if not then EPIC FAIL is coming
