According to a C|Net report a group of hackers is planning another attack on Sony this weekend. C|Net is calling the planned offensive a "major attack" that will target various Sony web sites. The information comes from IRC chatter, observed by an unnamed source. According to the report, the people involved plan to publicize the information they are able to steal from Sony's servers, which could include customer names, credit card numbers, and addresses. The hackers claim they currently have access to some of Sony's servers.
It's been a bad couple of weeks for Sony, who suffered a series of devastating security breaches of its servers. The failure to protect customers and inform them of the security breach has sparked a storm of investigations and inquires from various government agencies and politicians including the FBI, the Department of Justice, Congress, and the New York State Attorney General, a well as authorities in the U.K., Canada, Australia, Japan, and Taiwan.
Naturally, Sony is not commenting on this story, but we are pretty sure they are paying attention at this point. We will have more on this story as it develops.
