Sony reports another online security breach
TOKYO (AP) — Sony is reporting another online security breach, this time for 2,000 customers of its Sony Ericsson (News - Alert) joint venture in Canada.
Sony Corp. spokesman Atsuo Omagari said Wednesday that names, email and encrypted passwords may have been stolen from a company website, but no credit card information was taken.
There have been no reports of damage from the security breach, which was discovered Tuesday.
Sony's "PlayStation Network" system was hacked last month, affecting more than 100 million online accounts worldwide and forcing the company to shut down the popular online gaming service.
