Sony Hacked
Posted by brian on Mon January 26, 11:21 AM
from the have fun hitting reload page dept.
ZDNet is reporting that a band of Linux gurus calling themselves the "ugly llama 5" have cracked their way into Sony's internal servers and may have had access to sensitive information.  Reportedly an uninstalled patch was to blame, and it has been fixed.  No word yet as to how long they had been intruding, or if any customer credit card or private information had been compromised.  I wonder if Sony considers their work on jet turbines as sensitive information?  Just another reason to not do business with them.
