Sony Pictures was hacked earlier today, 1million accounts were leaked, passwords were contained in plain text in the database, for any of the techno literate, all it took was an sql injection.

The hacker group is called "Lulz Security"

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".


is sony being hacked even news worthy anymore?!?!

Hah.


Even if it's not quite right, I'm not sorry for playstation. I mean, seriously, an SQL injection and a couple hundred thousand passwords are stolen?


I mean, I just can't get over the fact that Sony is a huge company, yet doesn't do basic sanitation on SQL queries. :')


I bet the root password on all the servers is probably 'toor' as well, huh?

lmao. This is amazing. I feel bad for any of my friends who have a PS3 and credit card information on it, but honestly, Sony really needs to learn from this. I'm totally cool paying 50 bucks or so a year on xbox live.


EDIT: Oh okay, this is for Sonypictures.com, not the PSN. But still, when will they learn?
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

Well this sucks, I don't use psn nor have I credit card info on psn, but for those who do, this is uncool.


EDIT: psn is not sony pictures I think? But still uncool.
The content of this signature is pretty much irrelevant

-- In this file you will find just under 67,000 Sony music codes;
they're like magnets, we simply have no idea how they work.

So if you have a PSN account does all your info get stolen? Or has this nothing to do with PS3 at all this time?

its sony pictures, i dunno what that is, but knowing sony, they probably kept all details in one place
#21
I believe Sony is split up into separate divisions, and since they said "Sony Pictures" I assume it doesn't involve PS3. I can't remember the name of divisions that makes games (I don't really game anymore).

This stuff is so stupid people need to grow up. The hacking of Sony is uncalled for.


I'm willing to bet almost all of it is over GeoHotz. Which I'm not disapproving of, the hacking is a bit over-the-top, but I'm not a big fan of them either.

I'm pretty sure if you were the manufacture of a product and were worried about illegal pirating that would effect revenue you would take the same steps to prevent financial loss. I am not saying home brewing should be illegal, but logically the next step after home brewing is pirated games. They were saving their own ass.

Hey, everyone who laughed at 13-year old me when I decided I was going to buy a Wii on release day instead of the PS3 two days earlier?

Then who thought 14-year old me was stupid for buying a Lenovo computer instead of a Sony laptop?



Guess who's laughing.

Sony can't provide a stable online service, Microsoft can't make a console that doesn't break, and Nintendo recycles the same series rather than develop new ones. Take your pick. (Not bashing, I own all 3 consoles)

Counterintuitive statement seems counterintuitive.

You're right but I hate how everyone jumps on the bandwagon and calls a company crap because of it's flaws. Nothing's perfect and the Sony thing isn't acceptable but pretty much everyone's screwed up

I'm still laughing at you (although I would continue to laugh even if you bought the overpriced Sony laptop).

What was that, the first time that PSN went down in five years?

Besides, some older ps3 systems are getting YLoD

Kinda like how the xbox is very easily modded to run pirated games, and everyone's doing it.


Not everyone is technologically intelligent enough to hack their PS3.

And homebrew is one of the greatest things around, free games made by the community for the community. This doesn't lead directly to pirating. Sony completely stripped down the PS3, and basically spat in their costumers faces, all in the event a couple people may pirate a code.

Fair enough. Though I think it's more because of the scope and the fact Sony's not really done much of anything outside of presumably attempting to seal the security holes, whereas with the breaking wrist straps and flying controllers, Nintendo sent them out for free, and Microsoft repairs the RROD issues for free if my understanding is proper.

Given E3's coming up in a few days though, they could well be saving something for that.

Then allow me to wiggle my arm at you in a circular motion, which is supposed to be the motion command for a middle finger, but they're all so similar that it's really rather random.

I agree with you completely, but what system has home brewing and no pirating? From Sony's perspective, or really any business that doesn't want to have to win over hackers by giving them jobs, they are doing the right thing from a financial aspect.

Not totally true. They're supposedly letting people download 2 free games such as Little Big Planet, Wipeout, or Infamous. Idk if it's Playstation+ people only though

Right, and just look at the RIAA. Everything they do is the right thing from a financial perspective. It's just from a creative and community standpoint, it's not positive.

Huh, I was unaware of this. I retract my statement then. Though I do have to ask, as a friend who's had the marketplace down for six weeks said it's still down, with the marketplace down, how do you redeem that?

Wow...

Well at least people can go outside and play now.
Yay?

Must say though, I'm kind of glad I don't do online gaming other than on my PC.
