Another hack at Sony; 120 passwords go online

June 5th, 2011 in News

LONDON (AP) - A hacker claims to have stolen names and passwords belonging to 120 users of Sony Europe's website and published them to the Internet.

It's the latest in a series of attacks which have hammered the electronics multinational. Security researchers have counted about a dozen breaches since the beginning of this year, including two particularly serious ones which exposed 100 millions users' personal details.

The latest attack was claimed by "Idahc," who self-identifies as a Lebanese hacker. The Associated Press has been able to verify several of the exposed names.

A U.S.-based spokeswoman for Sony Corp. has not returned an email seeking comment.

The website allegedly hacked into was down for "scheduled maintenance" Saturday.
