Sony's Thai website pwned by phisher scoundrels

Wrong week to be a Sony security type

Security researchers have discovered a phishing site running on Sony's servers.

A fraudulent site running off the hdworld.sony.co.th domain is targeting an Italian credit card company, F-Secure reports.

The incident means that another Sony property, in this case its Thai website, has been hacked.

The incident is nothing like as serious at the PlayStation Network hack last month, which exposed the personal details of 77 million gamers. But it's still a very poor do, especially after Sony went to great pains to reassure everyone that it was tightening up security controls across the board in the wake of the PSN hack and a separate problem involving its online store.

F-Secure has informed Sony of the incident, explained in greater depth in a blog entry here.

In related news, phishing emails seeking to con gamers into handing over their PSN login credentials to bogus sites have predictably begun to appear.

Sony has issued a warning over this sort of skulduggery, advising users that it will not be contacting them via email nor asking them for social security or credit card information via email, security blog Allspammedup reports. ®
