More Sony customer info plundered

Another 2,000 customer records were looted from a Sony-related site, this time from the Canadian branch of the online cellphone store it runs with Ericsson. The third such event in the last few weeks was executed using SQL injection, according to a cracker who has already posted half of the records online. CEO and president Howard Stringer once wisecracked about giving up on trying to figure out how many products Sony and its myriad of divisions, subsidiaries and partnerships sells. I guess they have the same situation with security flaws, too.
