Sony-Operated ISP Hacked

As part of Sony's ongoing hack-fest, hackers have managed to break into Sony-operated internet service provider So-Net and steal virtual currency from some of its customers.

128 Japanese customers were affected by the attack which managed to steal an aggregate of 100,000 yen (approximately $1,224) worth of virtual points from them before the attack was noticed.

According to Sony's initial investigations, no user data was stolen and no other users were affected.

"At this point in our investigations, we have not confirmed any data leakage," the company said in a statement to its customers. "We have not found any sign of a possibility that a third party has obtained members' names, address, birth dates and phone numbers."
