A hacking group call “LulzSec” has attacked SonyPictures.com and compromised more than one million user passwords, email addresses, home addresses, dates of birth, and all Sony opt-in data associated with their accounts. The group also compromised administrative details of Sony Pictures, including passwords, along with 75,000 music codes and 3.5 million music coupons. The Associated Press reports the hacking group “ridiculed Sony for the ease with which it stole the data, saying that the company stored peoples’ passwords in a simple text file — something it called disgraceful and insecure.” This new attack follows Sony’s massive security breach last month that compromised more than 100 million user accounts.
