Sony Ericsson has once again recorded a security violation which has affected over 2000 of their customers in Canada. Though no damage has been reported, Sony’s representative, Mr. Atsuo Omagari stated that some names and email addresses, and even passwords have been hacked into and stolen from the company’s website.
The big positive here is that no credit card information was hacked into. As a safety precaution, the server was shut down, and though investigations are in progress, no other information was available. First it was the network gaming PlayStation that was under attack where a number of accounts were hacked into affecting a number of services.
And now, this week seems to be rife with reports of country based hacking into individual Sony services, and web pages. This security violation is what Sony has been fighting tooth and nail to solve and this is adding to the company’s woes of delays and losses suffered due to the tsunami and earthquakes in Japan which hampered sales. Sony has also suffered in the stock market when their profits took a plunge.
