Sony Ericsson Canada Website Hacked

May 25, 2011 -

Another day, another Sony-related web site gets hacked, according to the BBC. Hackers have managed to breach the security of Sony Ericsson Canada's online store, reportedly stealing users' personal data such as e-mails, passwords and telephone numbers. Sony has confirmed that this information has been stolen, but no credit card information was compromised.

Sony-related sites around the world have become the preferred target of hackers this this week; yesterday the website of the company's Greek music division was hacked and the personal information of about 8,500 customers was stolen. A company spokesman told the BBC earlier this week that Sony's Music Entertainment website in Indonesia and Sony's Thailand website were also hacked, though no data had been stolen in those cases.

No hacking groups have claimed responsibility for compromising these four sites.

Re: Sony Ericsson Canada Website Hacked

I wonder how much of this is just various Sony admins being told to double check their servers and discovering that they had been compromised at some point in the last year....

This, really, is the strongest indication that Anonymous is not responsible.

Because if Anonymous WERE responsible, they would NEVER SHUT UP ABOUT IT.

That, and apart from Scientology, nothing ever held their attention for so long... Could be a splinter of the group though. Either way, if those multiple attacks are not from the same group... Well, that's still a possibility, Sony generated a lot of bad blood recently (deserved or not) and, as was said by the guys at Extra Credits, you really don't want to be messing with people installing Linux on their PS3...

Sleaker@AE - Ah no it's called GroundKontrol - I was just referring to it as a Bar-Arcade.08/20/2014 - 4:39pm
Andrew EisenStill looking for confirmation that High Moon Studios (dev behind the PS3/360 versions) isn't working on it.08/20/2014 - 4:38pm
ZenGotcha.08/20/2014 - 4:37pm
Andrew EisenI already updated the story with it!08/20/2014 - 4:36pm

ZenWell, Call of Duty is skipping Wii U completely it seems...they updated that NO dev is working on it. Great way to just skip a market.08/20/2014 - 4:24pm
Andrew EisenYeah, Dave and Busters back in 2011 was the last time for me.08/20/2014 - 4:16pm
ZenWell, I tried lol. We just got a Dave and Busters on the beach but haven't been there yet...may go this weekend.08/20/2014 - 3:52pm
Andrew EisenIt's called The Bar-Arcade? Missed opportunity. I would have gone with Barcade.08/20/2014 - 3:25pm
SleakerThe Bar-Arcade however did have a lot of good pinball machines, they were however always taken as the place was packed..08/20/2014 - 1:17pm
Sleakerso I've been to an Arcade-Bar, not that great of a place has some okay machines, but generally over-packed. And then all the kid-friendly ones have is ticket-games nothing actually good unfortunately :(08/20/2014 - 1:14pm
Andrew EisenIf it has an area dedicated to arcade machines, I'd say it counts. Arcade machine in your house though, nope.08/20/2014 - 12:16pm
ZenDoes it count if you have actual arcade machines in your house?08/20/2014 - 12:01pm
E. Zachary KnightWith the current poll, I guess it all depends on how one defines "arcade". If Chuck E Cheese or similar multipurpose businesses count, then that is a yes for me.08/20/2014 - 11:59am
