It’s been a fairly shocking last month for Sony’s consumer electronics arm, thanks to the hack attack that exposed the personal details of millions of PlayStation Network users. Now it seems hackers are turning their attention to other parts of Sony’s business – its music division. Sony Music Greece’s website has been attacked, with an anonymous user uploading a database of usernames, real names and email addresses of people registered with the label’s local site. Users are being advised to reset their passwords, but the attack will have put Sony Music’s offices around the world on the alert for more problems of this nature. As Sophos points out in its report, “While it’s cruel to kick someone while they’re down, when this is over, Sony may end up being one of the most secure web assets on the net”. In more grim news for Sony, the company says it expects to post a $3.2 billion net loss for its fiscal year that ended on 31 March. Source: Billboard
