Sony Hacked Again

Reuters reports that So-Net, the Japanese Internet service provider part of Sony, has been attacked by an intruder who stole virtual points from account holders worth 100,000 yen, or approximately $1,225.

"At this point in our investigations, we have not confirmed any data leakage," the company said in a statement to customers on its website. "We have not found any sign of a possibility that a third party has obtained members' names, addresses, birth dates and phone numbers."

So-Net has suspended all So-Net points transactions pending investigation of the intrusion, and has encouraged all its customers to change their passwords to something new -- and more secure. Meanwhile, PSN and Sony Online Entertainment services are well on the way to being fully restored after the recent outages.

Where will it end?
