After all the uplifting repairs and apoligies from Sony, Reuters reported today that yet further hacking attempts succeeded and once again though a small amount of information was actually retrieved, enough was obtained to allow $1225 of virtual points to be abducted. Gosh guys, we know we’ve been supporting the moral of PSN and Sony overall, but with news like this continually releasing it’s hard to stomach the situation with any true closure. Further details are as follows:
Sony Corp has been hacked again. So-Net, the Internet service provider unit of Japan’s Sony, alerted customers an intruder broke into its system and stole virtual points worth $1,225 from account holders.
This latest setback comes after personal information of some 100 million Sony user accounts was stolen last month when its online gaming systems, the PlayStation Network and Sony Online Entertainment, were hacked.
Security experts said there were not surprised the electronics company has yet to clean up weaknesses in its massive global network. Earlier this week, Sony shut down one of its websites set up to help millions of users change their passwords after finding a security flaw.
