Sony is in another mess. As the PlayStation Network is just coming back online, another set of Sony websites have been hacked. This time it’s an attack on various websites associated with Sony Pictures. A team of hackers known has LulzSec have announced via twitter that they have broken into and have compromised over 1 million accounts. Also, 75,000 music codes and 3.5million coupons were uncovered.

The accounts compromised contained registered user acitiviy on the website and its subsidiaries as well as password, email addresses, dates of birth and other data. It’s not as dangerous as the PSN hack but information can be used to access accounts elsewhere. The worst part of the hack is that LulzSec claims the information it took wasn’t encrypted. In a press release, LulzSec says ‘Sony stored over 1,000,000 passwords of its customers in plaintext”.

These continuous hacks prove that web server managers need to constantly keep their servers updated and monitored. What do you think about it? Sony seems not to take its users data very seriously. Leave us a comment below.
