    Greetings folks. We're LulzSec, and welcome to Sownage. Enclosed you will
    find various collections of data stolen from internal Sony networks and websites,
    all of which we accessed easily and without the need for outside support or money.
    
    We recently broke into SonyPictures.com and compromised over 1,000,000 users'
    personal information, including passwords, email addresses, home addresses,
    dates of birth, and all Sony opt-in data associated with their accounts.
    Among other things, we also compromised all admin details of Sony Pictures
    (including passwords) along with 75,000 "music codes" and 3.5 million "music coupons".
    
    Due to a lack of resource on our part (The Lulz Boat needs additional funding!)
    we were unable to fully copy all of this information, however we have samples
    for you in our files to prove its authenticity. In theory we could have taken
    every last bit of information, but it would have taken several more weeks.
    
    Our goal here is not to come across as master hackers, hence what we're about
    to reveal: SonyPictures.com was owned by a very simple SQL injection, one of
    the most primitive and common vulnerabilities, as we should all know by now.
    From a single injection, we accessed EVERYTHING. Why do you put such faith in
    a company that allows itself to become open to these simple attacks?
    
    What's worse is that every bit of data we took wasn't encrypted. Sony stored
    over 1,000,000 passwords of its customers in plaintext, which means it's just
    a matter of taking it. This is disgraceful and insecure: they were asking for it.
    
    This is an embarrassment to Sony; the SQLi link is provided in our file contents,
    and we invite anyone with the balls to check for themselves that what we say
    is true. You may even want to plunder those 3.5 million coupons while you can.
    
    Included in our collection are databases from Sony BMG Belgium & Netherlands.
    These also contain varied assortments of Sony user and staffer information.
    
    Follow our sexy asses on twitter to hear about our upcoming website. Ciao! [img]http://gbatemp.net/vanilla/emoticons/happy.gif[/img]

    I agree. What the f*** is wrong with these people? We get it! Sony is hackable!

    I'm getting sick of these, not just about the hacks as it seems more like e-peen flexing, but also because Sony is seriously flawed with their security, with only fixing that which has been affected when the rest of their infrastructure is designed similarly as those that have been hacked. If one part is compromised, then don't think the rest isn't going to be.

    Yeah lets trust sony because they are always right XD. I don't blame the hackers that are going after sony, they really brought it on there self with Geohot. As long as hackers do not abuse personal customer data then there is no more harm done then which sony already created.

    How about doing something else instead of hacking them? It's not gonna get you anything.

    Satisfaction and possibly money. At least that's what I assume.

    What satisfaction? What money? The only thing I see them gaining is hate.

    Some men just want to watch the world burn.
    But honestly I for myself don't even care that much about those hacks, sure they are discussable but I also think its important to "show" how Sony treats user data.
    Not only PSN related user data but in general as well, which is kind of really shocking, I can't think of any other ways to do this.
    Sure, releasing the SQL Injection and the stolen user data was a dick move, that I agree on.

    Sony's been hacked quite a bit in the past few weeks, you'd think they'd learn to set up a decent security system.

    "everything was stores in Plaintext format on Sony's servers."

    Why am I not surprised?

    Seems awfully familiar...

    Sony got hacked so many times that it's not surprising to hear that they got hacked again.

    I'm sure most Nintendo and Microsoft fans aren't hating them.
