Hackers have attacked a Sony website in Thailand with a link to a fake site claiming to be an Italian credit card company to trick people into disclosing their credit card and personal information. Most people probably won't fall for something that looks like a dumb pop-up, but Sony's So-Net Internet service provider was not as lucky.
The system was infiltrated by hackers, who have laid claim to about $1,225 worth of virtual points from account holders, prompting So-Net to put out a statement:
What we've done is stopped the So-Net points exchanges and told customers to change their passwords. At this point in our investigations, we have not confirmed any data leakage. We have not found any sign of a possibility that a third party has obtained members' names, address, birth dates and phone numbers.
Sony has officially become the new playground for hackers who have nothing better to do...
