Sony Still Having Security Problems


Ever had a really bad day?  I mean a really bad day?  Well, Sony is having one now, so if you've ever had one, you know how they feel.
As if this recent post wasn't bad enough, now the Wall Street Journal is reporting that Sony has suffered another security breach.  This one deals with the Sony Online Entertainment division which makes multiplayer games for PC's.
It seems that there is a potential on this hack that 12,700 non-U.S. accounts and 10,700 bank account numbers from 2007 have been lifted.  At least they didn't wait as long to let you know this time.  This one happened earlier today and Sony is already getting the word out.
It seems that this particular attack gave the hackers access to 24.6 million customer personal accounts.
Sony has stated that its systems have been under attack for 6 weeks and they are not sure why.
Scary?  You bet it's scary.  For the full version of this story, head on over to the Wall Street Journal.
