Sony hacked again, used to host phishing site | Ars Technica
With Anonymous Denial of Service attacks and then the twin hacks of PlayStation Network and Sony Online Entertainment, Sony’s online infrastructure has been taking a battering over the last few weeks—and it’s not over yet. Another successful hack against the company is being reported by security firm F-Secure. A Web server used to host Sony’s Thai site has been broken into, and is now being used to host a phishing site that targets customers of an Italian credit card company.
Unlike the PSN and SOE break-ins, this hack is not likely to have any serious consequences; it should be restricted to a relatively unimportant Web server that has no access to sensitive customer information. Still, it shows that Sony’s online troubles aren’t over yet—and that the entire company needs to take online security more seriously.
