New Sony Hack Attack Threat As CEO Apologises

X

Hackers have warned that they are set to attack Sony’s web sites again. It is not known whether the hackers are linked with Anonymous the group that has been associated with the bringing down of Sony Playstation Network along with the Companies Entertainment Network.

The new attacks are being made because the hackers do not like the company’s reaction to the two significant security breaches that has resulted in the PSN network being down for nearly two weeks.

The group behind the latest threat is said to have posted several details on an IRC channel, claiming the attack may include customer information and credit card numbers, according to a CNET report. The individuals claim to have already gained access to Sony’s servers.


Sony Chief Executive Sir Howard Stringer who up until last night had not commented about the attack on their networks decided to apologise for the massive data breach of the company’s online game networks.

“I know this has been a frustrating time for all of you,” Mr. Stringer said in a blog post addressed to Sony customers late last night. “Let me assure you that the resources of this company have been focused on investigating the entire nature and impact of the cyber-attack we’ve all experienced and on fixing it.”

The previous security issues included a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack, which was organised by the vigilante group Anonymous. DDoS attacks merely cause problems for users attempting to access the company’s websites; however the second attack, presumed to be spearheaded by a separate group, may have compromised credit card information from millions of subscribers.

The PSN breach has brought the attention of the US Congress and NY Attorney General, among other regulators. The company has been asked to provide detailed information regarding its security practices and any other details relevant to the PSN hack.
