Maxney, a hacker of the Turkish Ajan group, has announced another attack against a high-profile company. They have leaked over 40,000 records allegedly belonging to Sony Italy customers.
The information, apparently stolen from web.sony.it, consists of
names, usernames, addresses, dates of birth, passwords and other user
Unfortunately for the individuals whose information has been made publicly available, the passwords are in clear text.
The data was posted online on SpeedyShare, but the file has been
removed. However, it was online long enough to allow cybercriminals to
copy the valuable information.
Over the past weeks, the same hackers targeted the US Air Force
Culture and Language Center, Samsung Kazakhstan, the Akron-Canton
Airport in Ohio, and the website of the City of Lansing (lansingmi.gov),
the capital of the US state of Michigan
