Sony Goes Down Again, This Time SQL Injection Takes Down SonyBMG
By on May 23rd, 2011

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.
