Sony Hacked… Yes, Again

Hackers make off with some virtual currency.

Sony has reported that hackers have breached the So-Net service provider the company operate in Japan. The cyber intruders made off with 100,000 yen (just over $1,224) in virtual points. “At this point in our investigations, we have not confirmed any data leakage,” the company said in a statement to its customers. “We have not found any sign of a possibility that a third party has obtained members’ names, address, [sic] birth dates and phone numbers.” Which is good, because the company’s customers have already suffered enough of that sort of thing.
