Sony Goes Down Again, This Time SQL Injection Takes Down SonyBMG

In what seems to be yet another set of never ending series of hacks, break-ins, Sony took another hit when the Greece website of it’s music division, SonyBMG was hit by SQL injection.

Sophos reports that an anonymous poster has uploaded to pastebin.com  a full user database, including the usernames, real names and email addresses of users registered on SonyMusic.gr.

After searching a bit, I found the relevant paste where the data was uploaded(I won’t link here, you should be able to find out) – but it would appear that about 8,385 rows of user data have been leaked.

If you’ve an account at SonyMusic.gr, I recommend you change your password ASAP – else you might end up unknowingly spamming your entire contact list.
