Sony BMG Greece hacked

Hackers 7, Sony 0. Game over

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Updated Sony BMG Greece has became the latest property of the entertainment giant to be hacked. The miscreants attacked over the weekend.

The Hackers News uploaded sample extracts from a database of users' names and email addresses onto pastebin after hackers who broke into SonyMusic.gr sent them a dump from their hack. The data as uploaded omits telephone numbers and password hashes that the unidentified hackers claimed to have swiped from the site.

The techniques used to pull off the attack are unclear, but some form of SQL injection-based assault following the use of automated scanning tools to find vulnerable Sony websites seems probable, net security firm Sophos notes.

The high-profile PlayStation Network hack has made Sony properties worldwide a prime target for hackers. A steady stream of vulnerable websites have been discovered as part of a process that is starting to resemble kicking someone when they are down. It's likely that any corporation subjected to this level of intense scrutiny would prove similarly insecure. ®
