Sony suffers 2nd data breach, more users at risk - nairrk - 05-03-2011

Tokyo, May 3 :The Internet security crisis at Sony deepened further with the company today admitting to a second massive breach, indicating that hackers have stolen data from another 24.6 million accounts on its online PC games network.

Sony Corporation and Sony Computer Entertainment today said personal information from around 24.6 million Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) accounts may have been stolen, as well as certain information from an outdated database from 2007.

Sony said these account details were hacked before the theft of 77 million users accounts, which was revealed last week.

The information from the outdated database that may have been stolen includes around 12,700 non-US credit or debit card numbers and expiration dates and about 10,700 direct debit records of certain customers in Austria, Germany, Netherlands and Spain, the Japanese electronics major said in a statement.
